Schedule A Mammogram

Mammograms, Breast Care, and You

In the United States, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes. Eighty percent of these women do not have any of the reported risk factors, other than being female and aging. The key to surviving breast cancer is early diagnosis. Regular screening mammograms, breast self-exams and yearly breast exams by your physician can help.

It is important to remember not to delay or put off your yearly mammogram screening. Worrying about what the screening might be like or what the results might show are common concerns, but most women found mammograms are more comfortable than they anticipated and it’s the best way to get peace of mind about your breast health. Click below to schedule your mammogram and to achieve that peace of mind.

Why Have a Mammogram?

A mammogram is the first line of defense against breast cancer, and it remains the most reliable diagnostic tool for doctors. The American Cancer Society recommends a baseline mammogram between the ages of 40-45 and a yearly screening afterwards.

It is critical for patients and their providers to detect breast cancer in it’s earliest, most curable stages when lumps are too small to feel and before any other symptoms develop. The five-year survival rate for breast cancer found at Stage 0 or Stage 1 is 100 percent.

Latest Technologies Available at Piedmont

  • 2D Screening Mammogram
    In 2D mammography, two X-ray images are taken, one from the top, and a second from the side. The affordable Care Act mandates that all insurance plans cover screening mammograms without cost.
     
  • 3D Screening Mammogram
    Three-dimensional (3D) mammography, also known as digital breast tomosynthesis, is the latest mammogram technology being used for breast cancer screening. Tomosynthesis is recommended for women with dense breast tissue. Some insurance policies require out-of-pocket costs for 3D mammograms.
     
  • 3D Diagnostic Mammogram
    3D Diagnostic mammograms are used after suspicious results on a screening mammogram or after some signs of breast cancer alert the physician to check the tissue.
    • A lump
    • Breast pain
    • Nipple discharge
    • Thickening of skin on the breast
    • Changes in the size or shape of the breast
    • A diagnostic mammogram can help determine if these symptoms are indicative of the presence of cancer.
