Preparing for Your Visit
Make a mammogram appointment
- Day, evening and weekend appointments available.
Under new federal guidelines for health insurance policies, many cancer screening tests, including mammograms, are required to be covered without co-payments from patients (please check with your policy).
What are the symptoms of breast cancer?
Early breast cancer usually does not cause pain and there may not be any noticeable symptoms, which is why mammography is vital. But as a cancer grows, it can cause changes that women should watch for:
- A lump or thickening in or near the breast or in the underarm area
- A change in the size or shape of a breast
- Nipple discharge or tenderness, or the nipple is pulled back (inverted) into the breast
- Ridges or pitting of the breast, so the skin looks like the skin of an orange
- A change in the way the skin of the breast, areola, or nipple looks or feels (warm, swollen, red or scaly)
- Pain or excessive tenderness
