A screening mammogram is an x-ray of the breast performed for women who have no signs nor symptoms of breast cancer, and no known breast problems or abnormalities. The objective of performing an annual screening mammogram is to detect breast cancer or other breast problems before clinical signs are noticeable. A screening mammogram usually involves two x-rays of each breast.
A diagnostic mammogram is performed when there is a known breast concern, such as a lump, or after an abnormality is found on a screening mammogram. If symptoms are present, please contact your healthcare provider to discuss scheduling a diagnostic mammogram and a breast ultrasound. A screening mammogram cannot be performed when you are symptomatic.
