Mammograms

Start getting a mammogram to screen for breast cancer at age 40 unless your doctor recommends different timing. If you have a family history of breast cancer, you may need testing in addition to a mammogram. Ask your doctor if genetic testing and counseling at UNC Women’s Health at Eden is right for you.

Types of Mammograms

Ask your doctor if you should have a mammogram using our 2D or 3D technology to create digital pictures of your breasts. If you have dense breasts, your doctor may recommend a 3D mammogram.

  • Screening mammogram – Takes pictures of your breasts to look for cancer when you don’t have signs or symptoms
  • Diagnostic mammogram – Takes pictures to examine specific breast tissue if your doctor wants to evaluate a lump or other symptoms, or learn more about irregular screening results
