Call and Schedule a Mammogram Screening

Having regular health screenings can help your doctor detect diseases and conditions at their earliest stages. Early detection found through mammogram screenings are an important step in successful treatment. Whether you need a routine mammogram or additional tests for a breast cancer diagnosis, we are your partners in care. Our clinics in Orange Chapman radiology and Dimaond Bar strives to offer our patients the dignity, compassion and attentive care they deserve.

Preparing for Your First Mammogram

A screening mammogram for women who have no signs or symptoms of breast disease is appropriate because early detection of breast cancer is when it’s most treatable. The American Cancer Society guidelines state women 40-44 should have a choice to have a screening mammogram and that women 45-54 should get one annually. And The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force 2016 states, “The decision to start screening mammography in women prior to age 50 years should be an individual one.“ Only a physician can determine when to get a screening mammogram.

Here’s what to expect when you have a mammogram:

  • Rest assured that mammograms use low-dose x-rays and can detect lumps that are too small to be felt.
  • Schedule your mammogram the week after your period when your breasts are less tender.
  • Don’t wear deodorant, powder, lotions or ointments since it may indicate a breast problem where there is none.
  • It’s best to wear a two-piece outfit so you only have to remove your top, making it easier and more comfortable for you.
  • The entire process takes 30 minutes or less. Each of your breasts will be compressed for approximately 20-30 seconds. The compression may be uncomfortable but flattening the breast is necessary to get the clearest image.
  • Our technicians understand how to make you feel as comfortable as they can before, during and after the exam.
  • Keep in mind that most unusual findings are not cancer; they could be cysts or dense tissue. Also, since this is your first time, there are no old mammograms to compare to. With your first mammogram you’re establishing a baseline that will help you and your doctor monitor your breast health going forward.
  • Your first mammogram is generally a screening test and not a diagnostic test, which evaluates specific problems or findings.
  • After the screening, a specially trained breast radiologist will review the images and report back to your physician in a timely manner.
