How Do I Get a Mammogram?

  • Ask your doctor today about a referral.
  • Check with your insurance plan about cost and co-payments.
  • Make an appointment with a mammography center approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Your doctor or nurse can help you find one.
  • When you go for a mammogram, do not wear lotions, powders, perfumes or deodorant. They can cause shadows on the X-ray picture.
  • Follow up with your doctor to get the results.
