Why Regular Mammography Is Important

 

Mammograms are often the first line of defense against breast cancer, particularly in women over 40 years old. Mammography can detect irregularities in the breast up to two years before doctors are able to detect lumps during physical examinations. This means cancer can be detected earlier, and the chances of effectively treating and preventing the spread of cancer are much higher. At Hunterdon Radiological Associates, we offer both digital mammography and 3-D digital mammography, which is used in conjunction with regular digital mammography to provide an enhanced look at breast tissue in special cases.

How Do Mammograms Work?

Mammography uses a low-energy X-ray to digitally image the breast tissue. The X-ray highlights irregularities such as cysts or tumors. During a mammogram, each breast is placed between two plastic paddles and compressed. This flattens the breast tissue and allows our radiologists to capture a more accurate and thorough image. During a screening mammogram, two images are taken of each breast. Diagnostic mammograms are more thorough and take more images from several angles. Diagnostic mammograms are performed after abnormalities have been seen in a screening mammogram, if nipple discharge is present or when breast lumps have been found.

Who Should Be Getting Mammograms?

Women aged 40 to 74 should be receiving regular mammography. If there is a history of breast cancer in a woman's family, mammograms should be performed yearly during this time. Women with no family history should be receiving them every two years. Any woman who has found a lump in her breast or has other breast cancer symptoms may also require a diagnostic mammogram. Women over the age of 74 should discuss mammograms with their doctor prior to booking an appointment.

Men with symptoms such as lumps in the breast tissue or nipple discharge may also require diagnostic mammography.
