What is a mammogram?

 

A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast. It is the best screening tool used today to find breast cancer early. A mammogram can find cancer at an early stage when it is small and easier to treat. Starting at age 40, all women should get a mammogram every year. If you are under 40 and have a family history of breast cancer or other concerns about your breast, talk to your doctor about when to start getting mammograms or other tests and how often to have them.
