A mammogram is a safe and simple X-ray of the breast. During a mammogram, the breast is gently pressed between two plates to flatten and spread the tissue.
Two X-rays are taken of each breast. If a woman has breast implants, typically four X-rays are taken of each breast to assess the breast tissue and implant itself.
Mammograms can identify abnormalities such as very small lumps, areas of calcification or other changes up to two years before they can be felt by a woman or her physician.
