At Complete Healthcare for Women, we offer mammography. Mammography uses x-rays to take images of the breast. The images that result are called mammograms.

Mammogram Uses

Mammograms are used for two reasons: screening and diagnosis. Mammograms are used to screen for breast cancer. Mammograms are performed both on women who have concerns about their breasts and women who show no signs of breast cancer during a breast exam. Mammograms can determine whether there are any changes in breast tissue that went undetected during the exam. Breast changes are normal, particularly in relation to your menstrual cycle, but to determine whether it is benign, it is important to see your doctor. Mammograms are also used as a diagnostic test when there are breast problems.

Who Needs Mammograms

According to the United States Preventive Services Task Force, women over the age of 50 should get a mammogram every two years. If you are under the age of 50 but have a history of breast cancer in your family, your doctor may recommend you also start receiving mammograms.

Preparing For Your Mammogram

If you are getting ready to have a mammogram in your gynecologist’s office, here are some considerations to make to prepare.

At Complete Healthcare for Women, we offer mammograms for women who need them. Contact us to learn more about our women’s healthcare services and to schedule an appointment.
