Mammograms contribute to the early diagnosis of breast cancer and decrease breast cancer deaths. A mammogram is a radiologic study which uses X-ray images to screen for any signs of breast cancer. Regular mammogram screenings are an important part of maintaining a woman’s health. There are two kinds of mammograms that are routinely performed. The first is a screening mammogram — this is performed when there is no suspicion of any breast lump or problem. The second kind is a diagnostic mammogram. This is when either you or your physician has a concern about the breast. More images will be taken during a diagnostic mammogram. Solid preparation before undergoing a mammogram can help to minimize both the physical discomfort and the emotional stress of this study.
