Services for Mammography at Outpatient Care Lewis Center
During a screening mammogram, a picture of the breast is taken using X-rays. The breast cancer experts at the OSUCCC – James recommend women begin getting annual screening mammograms at age 40. Women under 40 who have a family history of breast cancer should start getting mammograms earlier — 10 years before the age the youngest family member was when they were diagnosed. (For example, if your mother was diagnosed at 40, you should start getting mammograms at 30.)
Because there is no routine mammogram, it’s important where you get your screening. Experts who read and interpret mammograms — and only mammograms — all day, every day are the best choice for a first line of defense. Their in-depth expertise is specifically to detect breast cancer or to make sure there’s nothing to be found on your mammogram.
