A mammogram is an X-ray image of your breasts used for screening or diagnostic purposes to detect breast cancer. Mammograms play a key role in early breast cancer detection and help decrease breast cancer deaths.
Mammography services are available in the HERS Breast Center at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire. Specially designed to deliver state-of-the-art care in a warm, caring atmosphere with the needs of women in mind.
Early detection saves lives
Undiagnosed breast cancer can lead to serious complications and even death. In addition to regular breast self-exams, a mammogram is the most accurate method available to detect breast disease when no symptoms exist.
Consider using your birthday as a reminder to celebrate good health by scheduling a mammogram. Mayo Clinic physicians and the American Cancer Society recommend women have an annual breast screening, beginning at 40. Your provider will let you know if you should be screened more or less frequently based on your health history.
Note: While COVID-19 vaccines can cause swollen lymph nodes under the arm where the vaccination was administered, this is no reason to delay getting a mammogram. Learn more about COVID-19 mammogram recommendations.
