What is a screening mammogram?
A screening mammogram is an annual exam to screen for breast cancer in women without symptoms. We provide 3D screening mammography inside our office for the convenience and comfort of our patients.
How often should I receive a mammogram? Most women begin having annual mammograms at age 40. If you have known risk-factors, or a family history that may impact your breast cancer risk, we may recommend a mammogram earlier than age 40. To schedule an appointment, call or text 936-560-2666.
What is a diagnostic mammogram?
A small percentage of screening mammogram patients will be “called back” for a diagnostic mammogram at a different location. A diagnostic mammogram is used to investigate suspicious breast changes, such as a new lump, dimpling or puckering of the skin, pain in the breast, or nipple thickening or discharge. Common reasons for diagnostic call backs include images that need re-taken for clarity, overlapping or dense tissue, new or changing calcifications, a new mass/cyst, or any area or change in your breast that a radiologist recommends evaluating further. A diagnostic mammogram often includes additional targeted mammogram images and is sometimes followed by a breast ultrasound.
