More on Mammography Clinics
Other than detecting cancers, a mammogram may make known calcifications, which are little grains of calcium present in some breasts. Cysts, or fluid-filled sacs, may also be seen. Fibroids, which are solid, movable lumps, may be noticeable and are not rare in younger women. These results may or may not be linked with malignancies. An additional type of test that may be done at a mammography clinic is one where a needle is used to draw fluid out of the area where the lump is located. Certain lumps in the breasts are simply cysts, so by utilizing the needle it will make the cyst go away naturally. If the lump the doctor is concerned about is not a cyst, tissue samples are taken to be examined. Mammograms can save your life or they can radically alter your life. It is imperative that women do self breast exams, include an exam at their annual check up with their gynecologist and as well get mammograms. Mammograms ought to be done on a year on year basis. It is essential to do this annually so any cancer can be discovered early on.
