What’s the difference between a screening and diagnostic mammograms?
Mammography plays a key role in the early detection of breast cancer. It can reveal the presence of cancer long before it can be felt or cause symptoms. Current guidelines from the American Cancer Society (ACS) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) recommend screening mammography every year for women, beginning at age 40. Research shows that annual mammograms lead to the early detection of breast cancers, when they are small and more easily treated and cured. Women who have had breast cancer or are at higher risk due to a family history of the disease should talk to their doctor about when and how often they should be screened.
Diagnostic mammography refers to the same procedure as screening mammograms, only the scanning is focused on a particular area of interest because the doctor has reason to suspect the presence of cancer or some other abnormality. It may be that the patient has symptoms (breast lump, pain, skin changes or nipple discharge) or that the findings on her screening mammogram were unclear. About10% of screening mammograms are inconclusive and require follow up with diagnostic mammography. A recommendation for diagnostic mammography is not necessarily a reason for concern. The majority of women who have a diagnostic mammogram are found not to have cancer.
Monthly Breast Self-Exam
In the Shower:
Raise one arm. With fingers flat, touch every part of each breast, gently feeling for a lump or thickening. Use your right hand to examine your left breast, your left hand for your right breast.
Before a mirror:
With arms at your sides, then raised above your head, look carefully for changes in the size, shape, and contour of each breast. Look for puckering, dimpling, or changes in skin texture. Gently squeeze both nipples and look for discharge.
Place a towel or pillow under your right shoulder and your right hand behind your head. Examine your right breast with your left hand.
Fingers flat, press gently in small circles, starting at the outermost top edge of your breast and spiraling in toward the nipple. Examine every part of the breast. Repeat with left breast.
With your arm resting on a firm surface, use the same circular motion to examine the underarm area. This is breast tissue also.
