Breast Health: Mammograms

Should you do self-breast exams?

Many women choose to examine their own breasts.

Women who do know that breast changes can occur because of:

-Menstrual cycles

-Birth control pills

-Pregnancy

-Aging

-Menopause

-Hormone replacement therapy

It is normal for breasts to feel a little lumpy and uneven. Also, it is common for breasts to be swollen and tender right before or during a menstrual period. Whenever any unusual changes occur, contact your health care provider.

We cover mammograms based on what you and your healthcare provider decide is best for you, your risks and preferences.
