A Mammogram is an X-ray of the breast. During this procedure the breast may need to be compressed to obtain the most accurate picture. Yes you may experience some discomfort but it will only be temporary. Breast cancer forms inside the tissues of the breast. It is more common in women than it is in men.
A self-examination and a mammogram are used to detect the presence of lumps. The lumps are then tested to check if they are cancerous and need to be removed. Treatment involves surgery, drugs and radiation. You can watch clinical breast exam video on the internet for more information.
The industry standard for the early detection of breast cancer is mammography. A mammogram is a type of imaging system that entails using a low dose ionizing x-ray to take a picture of the breast. That image is then analyzed to see if there is any unusual tumor growth. This procedure is beginning to receive lots of opposition because it has been shown to be inaccurate with high false negative rates.
Breast cancers have typical symptoms depending on their type. If the breasts keep getting very red, increasingly hard and sore, and sometimes get "bumpy" as if there are small hives near the inflamed area, it is inflammatory breast cancer. If the breasts are very itchy, develop red scaly rashes and can easily be mistaken, as it usually is, for eczema, it's the Pagent's disease. Do not stay in doubt, get it checked out.
