MAMMOGRAM EXAMS TO PREVENT BREAST CANCER


This exam is conducted for the prevention of breast cancer (the so-called screening) and has no particular contraindications.

 

 

Usually it is recommended to women after 40 years of age, as thanks to the density of the mammary gland, it is more difficult to detect suspicious nodules with respect to a simple ultrasound.

 

 

Men can also be affected by breast cancer, but the incidence is so low that it is never proposed as a screening examination.
