Preparing For A Mammogram

September 15, 2016

A screening mammogram can be scheduled by you or your physician. Here are a few things to do to in preperation for your mammogram.

1. Do not wear deodorant, talcum powder, or lotion under your arms or on your breasts the day of the exam. These sometimes appear as calcifications on the mammogram. Should you wear any of these, we do provide wet wipes to remove it and spray deodorant for after your exam.

2. Inform your technician if you are experiencing any breast symptoms. Ie. Mass, pain, etc. Also inform your technician if there is any possibility that you are pregnant.

3. If possible, obtain any prior mammograms and make them available to the radiologist at the time of your current exam.

4. Ask when your results will be available. If you do not hear from your doctor or our office feel free to give us a call and we can check into that for you.

"I want you to know how nice my appointments were yesterday! Bill did a great job doing the heart smart scan. Then I said I had a mammogram later in the day scheduled at Carew. He told me about the BDC there and walked me down to see if they could do that for me there. The ladies immediately were warm and welcoming. I wasn’t a bother to them at all, and it was even over the lunch period. They all should get a pat on the back for a great job."
