How is a mammogram performed?

When you have a mammogram, you are required to stand before an x-ray machine. The experts who have taken the onus of the test will place your breasts between two plastic plates. Further, these plates press the breasts to make them flat. This procedure might sound a bit uncomfortable but is imperative to make out the existence of any prevailing issues.

It is based on the readings of mammograms your practitioner will plan out the next course of action. If the evaluation is normal, you no longer have to worry. However, it is still advisable that you get your breast analysis at least once every three years. This step becomes further crucial for all the ladies out there falling in the age group of 20 and 39 years.

Indisputably, the technique of mammography has emerged as a boon ever since it came into the limelight. With the capacity to detect any disorders related to the breasts at an early stage, the modality has evolved into a life savior for a large number of women!

Preparation for a Mammogram

Before undergoing a mammography test, it is paramount that you communicate these pivotal components to your treating doctor. Prior surgeries, any family history of breast cancer, pregnancy, and hormone use-for instance should be in the knowledge of the practitioner. Also, if you have any copies of the previous mammograms, bring them along on the evaluation day.

Also, dressing in comfy clothes is advisable. Plus ditch the use of deodorant, talcum powder or lotion as they may play a deterrent in the correct diagnosis.
