What is a mammogram?

Mammogram -Breast Imaging

A mammogram is an x-ray of the breast. The breast is flattened in different positions between two plates and two views are taken for each breast. For comparison, generally, both the breasts are x-rayed. Mammograms are crucial for the early detection and diagnosis of cancer. Changes in the breast are easily detected, which may be early signs of breast cancer.

Breast compression is slightly uncomfortable. When is done for routine checkup, it is best done after periods as it is less uncomfortable then.
