Also called: Mammograms; 3-D Mammograms; Breast Tomosynthesis
A mammogram is a picture of the breast captured with x-rays. It can be used to check for breast cancer in women and men who are not experiencing symptoms of the disease. It can also be used if you have a lump or other sign of breast cancer.
Screening mammography is the type of mammogram that checks you when you have no symptoms.
Mammograms are also recommended for younger women who have symptoms of breast cancer or who have a high risk of the disease.
