A mammogram is a special breast X-ray that can reveal the presence of small cancers up to 2 years before you or your health care provider can feel them. Mammography services can also be used to detect and diagnose breast disease in women experiencing symptoms such as lump, pain, skin dimpling or nipple discharge.
