What is a Mammogram?
A mammogram is a highly effective test for early breast cancer detection. Receiving a mammogram is the best way to identify breast cancer before any symptoms surface. By undergoing a mammogram, individuals have the opportunity to address breast cancer proactively and increase their chances of successful treatment.
Typically, routine screening mammograms are covered by insurance, and can be scheduled by a referral of your primary care provider or by scheduling one at a radiology center or a clinic that offers this service.
However, you should have a primary care provider designated so that the results of your mammogram can be properly communicated to you.
