Everything You Need to Know About Mammograms
Breast cancer awareness has reached new levels in recent years, with specialized campaigns and programs designed to showcase the importance of routine exams and screenings such as mammograms. With roughly 10-15% of breast cancer diagnoses occurring in women under age 45, taking preventative measures should take place regardless of age.
Despite an increase in overall awareness and resources about breast health and cancer prevention, many women may wonder what to expect when making a mammogram appointment, especially if it’s their first time doing so.
Common questions about the process of receiving a mammogram may include:
- Am I the right candidate for a mammogram or breast cancer screening?
- What can I do to prepare for my appointment?
- Who is responsible for interpreting and reporting my test results?
- What happens if my mammogram reveals a suspicious finding?
Tri-City Medical Center is committed to helping women answer these questions and protect their health at every age. Tri-City Medical Center providers and breast cancer survivors collaboratively introduced SonoCiné technology to save even more lives with cutting-edge screening techniques.
