Know about Mammography


  • There is divergent opinion among doctors over when a woman should first have a mammogram. Some recommend a ‘baseline’ mammogram between the ages of thirty-five and forty, followed by yearly or two-yearly mammography beginning at age forty. Other doctors think that women don’t need mammography until age fifty.

  • One thing that everyone agrees on, however, is that mammography is both essential and critical and that a good clinical analysis is as important as competent imaging.

  • To ensure the best ‘pictures’ possible, don’t use a deodorant or talcum powder on the day of your mammogram.

  • The talc in the powder and the aluminium hydroxide in the deodorant are absorbed through the skin in the underarm area. These materials can then pass into breast tissue and possibly show up on the mammogram as calcium deposits.

  • Calcium deposits in breast tissue are one of the signs indicating that cancer is present. So by using talcum powder or a deodorant before your test, you could create the conditions that would result in a false-positive test result. In other words, your mammogram would indicate cancer where there is none.

  • Don’t worry about perspiration on the day of your exam. You can take care of that after you have had your mammogram.
