The Benefits

What if the Doctor Finds Something Wrong With my Breast?
Mammograms allow the doctor to look for small lumps inside your breast. If a lump is found in your breast, the doctor will order other tests to find out if it’s cancer. The doctor may take a small bit of tissue from the lump. This is called a biopsy.
