If your breasts are sensitive it is preferable to avoid coffee, tea, chocolate and colas during the two weeks prior to the exam. For the same reason, it is recommended to pass the mammography within ten days of the start of your period or when your breasts are less sensitive. You can take two Tylenol 1 hour before the exam.
Do not use deodorant, powder, cream or perfume on your breasts and armpits. These products cause false images that can be mistaken for lesions.
We suggest you wear two-piece clothing as you only need to remove the top to complete the exam.
To reduce any anxiety which may be related to the mammography exam or complementary tests, we suggest to:
IF YOU HAVE BREAST PROSTHETICS, MENTION IT WHEN MAKING YOUR APPOINTMENT.
IF YOU MUST UNDERGO ADDITIONAL BREAST MAMMOGRAPHY, PREPARE AS FOR THE SCREENING MAMMOGRAPHY.
