Mammograms are X-rays of the breast and are considered an effective tool for finding breast disease. When used to find breast disease before symptoms occur, they are called screening mammograms. Diagnostic mammograms help find breast disease in women who have an abnormal screening mammogram or who notice changes in the breast like a lump, skin change or nipple discharge.

Women who undergo screening mammograms decrease their chance of dying from breast cancer by 30 percent.
