  • Who should get a mammogram?
  • How is a mammogram performed?
  • Is a mammogram painful?
  • Are there different types of mammograms?

  • How will I receive my results? 

Understanding Mammography

Routine screening mammograms can help save your life. We want you to feel ready to take charge of your breast health by knowing what to expect from this experience.

Many factors determine when you should have a mammogram, such as your family history, risk factors and age. Starting at age 25, you should get a clinical breast exam every 1 to 3 years. If you have a higher-than-average risk of breast cancer, discuss early mammography and ultrasound screening with your health care provider. Otherwise, the baseline age for mammograms is 40, and you should have them done yearly after this age.

Mammography may be used either for screenings or to diagnose a symptom. A screening mammogram takes an X-ray to detect breast changes when you have no signs of breast cancer. A diagnostic mammogram can diagnose unusual breast changes, such as a lump, pain, nipple thickening or discharge or a change in breast size or shape.

A mammogram is an X-ray examination of your breast. The latest digital mammography technology takes very detailed digital images of your breasts. These images help your doctor detect breast cancers, benign tumors and cysts before you can even feel them.

Honor a Loved One

This October, we invite you to honor — or remember — a loved one with breast cancer by emailing their name and which hospital their name should be associated with to gor.communicationsag@adventhealth.com. Each name will be added to a certificate and used in a mural that will be displayed at AdventHealth Gordon, AdventHealth Murray and AdventHealth Redmond during Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October).
