What is the difference between a screening and a diagnostic mammogram?

A screening mammogram is your routine mammogram that is done when you have no apparent symptoms of breast cancer. Sometimes after a screening mammogram, the radiologist may ask you to come back for follow-up images, called a diagnostic mammogram, to rule out an unclear area in the breast.

Diagnostic mammograms are also done if there is a breast complaint that needs to be evaluated, such as breast lumps, bumps, pain, nipple discharge or a history of cancer. If you are experiencing any of these concerns, be sure to consult with your provider to determine if you need a diagnostic mammogram.
