Digital mammograms rely on X-rays to produce images of the breast that may allow physicians to diagnose cancer in its earlier stages. Screening mammograms are recommended for women 40 years and older every one to two years. A screening mammogram is done when there are no symptoms of breast cancer and is designed to detect lumps, tumors, and microcalcifications in the breast that cannot be felt. Diagnostic mammograms, on the other hand, are used to check for breast cancer after a lump has already been discovered. Physicians also regularly recommend diagnostic imaging for patients who have breast pain, nipple discharge, a change in breast shape or size, or thickened skin on the breast. Diagnostic mammograms generally take longer to produce an image, as technicians create more detailed images of targeted areas of tissue.

Women over the age of 40 should get a mammogram every year. As cancer patient Linda Jeffries shares, she noticed a lump on her breast but simply got busy and put off getting a mammogram.
