What You Need to Know

Wear a comfortable two-piece outfit to easily undress from the waist up. Do not use any deodorant, perfume, lotion or powder on your upper body. Using these products before a mammogram may cause white spots to appear on the image and require repeat mammograms.
Regular mammograms, in conjunction with clinical breast exams and breast self-exams (BSE), are a critical component of routine health care for women. There is no more effective way to spot breast cancer in its early stages than with regular mammograms, enhanced by state-of-the-art technology such as digital breast tomosynthesis (3-D technology) and computer-aided detection. Mammography can detect the beginnings of cancer far sooner than women can on their own, even with vigilant self-examination. Mammograms can even detect some forms of pre-cancer prior to the development of a tumor.
