Information on Mammograms

We wanted to share some really important information about mammograms with you from the National Cancer Institute. Mammograms - Key Points

**A mammogram is an x-ray picture of the breast. Screening mammograms are used to check for breast cancer in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease. Diagnostic mammograms are used to check for breast cancer after a lump or other sign or symptom of the disease has been found.

**Screening mammography can help reduce the number of deaths from breast cancer among women ages 40 to 74.

**Potential limitations of screening mammography include false-positive results, overdiagnosis and overtreatment, false-negative results, and radiation exposure.
