Mammogram Q & A

What is a mammogram?

Mammography is performed to screen for breast cancer. A mammogram is a specialized X-ray that can identify abnormalities in your breast tissue that could indicate a cancerous or precancerous growth.

At Yorktown Health, there’s no need to schedule your mammogram at a separate office and have it sent to your doctor for analysis. The office features in-house mammograms so you can get quick results and immediate feedback. 

You don’t have to spend extra time making a separate appointment and traveling to another facility to have your test done. Plus, there’s minimal agonizing wait time. You get the health answers you need right away.

When should I have a mammogram?

When you reach age 40, you have the choice to start regular mammograms for breast cancer screening. Women aged 45-54 should get a mammogram every year. Women 55 and older can wait two years between mammograms or opt to continue yearly screenings.

If you have a personal or family history of breast cancer or are otherwise at high risk, you’d benefit from starting regular mammograms earlier and having the screenings more frequently.

If a suspicious lump is found during a clinical breast exam or you discover one yourself, the team may recommend that you get a mammogram right away.

What is a 3D Mammogram?

3-D mammography (also known as Tomosynthesis), which is available at Yorktown Health, is the most modern screening and diagnostic tool available for early detection of breast cancer. While standard 2-D mammography produces a flat image, tomosynthesis creates a three-dimensional rendering of the breast — which results in greater accuracy, earlier breast cancer detection and a decrease in biopsies and recall rates.

Why choose a 3-D mammogram?
- Detects 41% more invasive cancers
- Reduces callbacks for a second look by 40%
- Has been approved by the FDA
- Is appropriate for all women

What other in-office tests are available in addition to mammograms?

The Yorktown Health team offers many screenings in the office for your convenience and comfort. In addition to mammography services, you can take advantage of in-house phlebotomy services. The friendly staff can draw your blood and order relevant blood tests. No need to make an appointment elsewhere for blood draws.

The office also features in-office ultrasound. Ultrasound is an important screening tool during pregnancy to check a baby’s development, gender, and size.

Ultrasound is also valuable in diagnosing certain gynecological conditions, such as polycystic ovary syndrome or uterine fibroids. Ultrasound can help find the cause of pelvic pain or abnormal uterine bleeding.

Yorktown Health provides in-house mammography and other testing services that optimize your gynecological care. Call the office or request an appointment using the online booking tool here on the website.
