Get Cancer Worries Off Your Chest
Most lumps are not cancerous, but when a suspicious mass is diagnosed and treated early, the chance of a cure is very good. Mammography provides that early warning, especially when used in combination with a physical exam.
Mammography creates an image of the breast to detect cancer or other breast disease. This can reveal changes in the breast before a woman or healthcare provider can discover them and can often indicate whether a lump requires further examination. If needed, Norman Regional also provides advanced 3-D imaging, including magnification views, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, stereotactic core-needle biopsy and ultrasound-guided needle biopsy.
Mammogram results are interpreted by highly trained radiologists who analyze all the images taken during your exam and send a signed report to the ordering physician, which will take 24 to 48 hours. Additional copies can be sent upon request to primary care physicians or specialists. The ordering physician or your primary care physician will go over the results with you.
The Oklahoma Breast Center Breast Imaging Services also performs three-dimensional (3D) mammography. Also known as breast tomosynthesis, 3D mammography uses X-ray machines to take pictures of thin slices of the breast from different angles, and then digitally reconstructs an image. 3D mammography lets doctors better evaluate breast images, layer by layer, for greater accuracy, better breast cancer detection and less of a chance you will need additional imaging or testing.
Norman Regional has also installed the first CT (3D) breast specimen imaging system in the state of Oklahoma – the Clarix Imaging VSI-360 breast specimen imaging system. The Clarix Imaging system will help breast cancer surgeons identify tumors more easily during lumpectomy procedures.
When to Schedule a Mammogram
Every woman is at risk for breast cancer, and mammograms are the single most effective method of early detection.
The American Cancer Society and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation recommend the following guidelines:
- Age 20-plus: Perform monthly breast self-examinations. Become familiar with the normal look and feel of your breasts. If ANY change occurs, report it to your doctor.
- Age 20–39: Have a clinical breast examination by your doctor at least every three years.
- Age 40-plus: Have an annual mammogram.
- If you are under age 40 and have a family history of breast cancer or other concerns about your risk, talk with your doctor about when to begin mammography.
