Mammography

Education and Information

Breast cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths for women in the United States. With advances in diagnostic information and increases in patient education, we can detect breast cancer early, while it is still very small and highly treatable. Currently, two-thirds of newly diagnosed breast cancers show no signs that the cancer has spread.

How to Prepare for a Mammogram

While the mammogram is a short test, there are a few things you can do to help simplify the procedure.

  • Bring previous mammogram films if you were tested at a different facility.
  • Do not apply powder, creams, or deodorant on the day of the mammogram as they may contain substances that could interfere with the accuracy of the x-rays.
  • Wear a top with a skirt or slacks since you will be asked to remove your top and bra.
