Take Charge of Your Breast Health

Advanced screening for early detection and lifelong health.

The best line of defense against breast cancer is early detection. And at AdventHealth, we want to make it easy for you to keep up with your routine screenings and stay well.

The advanced digital mammogram technology at our hospitals, including 3D mammography, can detect breast cancer up to two years earlier than self-examination. And our imaging specialists have advanced training and extensive expertise in detecting subtle differences between tissues, so we can carefully pinpoint areas of concern.

Understanding
Mammography

Routine screening mammograms help save lives. That’s why we want you to feel ready to take charge of your breast health and understand what to expect from the imaging experience.

What Is Mammography?
Mammography is an X-ray examination of the breast. Mammograms make it possible to detect breast cancers, benign tumors and cysts — even before you can feel them. The latest digital mammography technology takes very detailed electronic images of your breasts, which can be enhanced by computer technology and even transmitted electronically.

When Should I Get a Mammogram?
Many factors determine when you should have a mammogram, such as your family history, risk factors, and age. Any woman over the age of 25 should have a diagnostic mammogram if they have any unusual breast symptoms — such as a lump, pain, nipple thickening or discharge — or a change in breast size or shape. Otherwise, screening mammograms usually begin at 40 and occur annually. Ask your doctor when you should begin annual screenings.

Are There Different Types of Mammograms?
Mammography may be used either for screenings or to make a diagnosis. A screening mammogram is an X-ray of the breast used to detect breast changes when you have no signs of breast cancer. It usually involves two X-rays of each breast. A diagnostic mammogram is an X-ray of the breast used to diagnose unusual breast changes, such as a lump, pain, nipple thickening or discharge, or a change in breast size or shape.
