A mammogram allows doctors to have a closer examination of a breast lump, and also to check for changes in breast tissue that cannot be felt during a breast examination. If you have any breast symptoms, such as a change in the shape or size of a breast, a lump, nipple discharge, or pain, a mammogram may be recommended. In women under the age of 35, mammograms are less sensitive, as the breasts are normally quite dense with glandular tissue, and an ultrasound scan of the breast is often performed instead.
