Most organizations recommend an annual clinical breast exam beginning at age 40.
If you do not know which type of mammogram is best for you, or if there is a possibility that you are pregnant, call (502) 259-PINK / (502) 259-7465 to speak with a breast health navigator.
A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast and is generally recommended for women who have no signs of or family history of breast cancer. It usually involves two or three X-rays of each breast. A screening mammogram is a routine test to find any tumors that cannot be felt.
Tomosynthesis (TOMO) 3-D Mammogram
This state-of-the-art test is much like a screening mammogram but provides 3-D images that make it highly effective in finding abnormalities in breast tissue. This test may be more effective than a regular mammogram for women with dense breast tissue or women who are at high risk for breast cancer. This screening may have a cost that is not covered by insurance.
