Mammography Awareness

You Are The Key to Early Breast Cancer Detection

Over 40? Get a mammogram yearly

Screening mammograms are recommended for all women without breast symptoms over the age of 40 on a yearly basis.

At Johns Hopkins, we also recommend that you do a monthly breast self-exam and undergo a clinical breast exam by your physician annually.

You may need a screening mammogram before the age of 40 if you have a family history of breast cancer or other factors that increase a woman’s risk of breast cancer. Johns Hopkins Imaging can assist you in determining if you need screening at an earlier age.

Take control of your breast health

  • Remember the monthly breast self-exam. Speak with your health care provider as soon as you notice a change.
  • Have a yearly breast exam by your health care provider.
  • Talk with other women about breast health!

Trust the expertise of Johns Hopkins

Think Johns Hopkins Imaging when you schedule your annual mammogram.

We offer:

  • Radiologists who specialize in breast imaging
  • A highly skilled imaging staff
  • Warm, caring environment
  • State-of-the-art technology
  • Convenient suburban locations
  • Referrals to Johns Hopkins specialists

We use digital mammography, which provides a clearer and more accurate image of the breast and aids in the accurate diagnosis of early stage breast cancers.

After your screening, a radiologist reads your mammogram and discusses the results with you while you’re still in the imaging suite. If the results warrant additional assessment, treatment or biopsy, you may be able to get it that same day or within a week. Our ability to provide quick diagnosis provides you with much-needed peace of mind.

Johns Hopkins Imaging physicians follow the guidelines set by the American College of Radiology, American Cancer Society, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, American College of Surgeons, National Cancer Institute and the Society of Breast Imaging.
