A mammogram is an X-ray image of your breasts used to screen for breast cancer. Mammograms play a key role in early breast cancer detection and help decrease breast cancer deaths.

If you’ve received mammogram results that differ from previous examinations, it’s important that the radiologist compares your current and past mammograms to assess whether the area of concern is stable or new.

Learn more about conflicting mammogram results from Dr. Sandhya Pruthi, a Mayo Clinic general internal medicine physician and past director of the Mayo Clinic Breast Diagnostic Clinic.
