Mammography is an x-ray picture of the breasts. It is the single most effective method to detect breast changes that may be cancer, long before physical symptoms can be seen or felt. Because risk factors vary in everyone, each woman and her doctor should discuss the plan that’s right for her. The American Cancer Society recommends that women 40 and over have a mammogram every year. Mammograms save lives.
St. Francis Hospital & Health Services provides every woman with the MammoPad breast cushion – a soft, foam pad that creates a cushion between you and the mammography machine. So you can relax, knowing the mammogram will be warm and comfortable.
