Mammogram Tips

SCHEDULE the week after your mentrual period. If you've gone through menopause, any time is fine!

BRING prior mammogram images if this is your first mammogram at Montefiore Nyack Hospital.

AVOID using deodorants, antiperspirants, powders, lotions, creams or perfumes under your arms or on your breasts. Metallic particles in these products could be visible on your mammogram and cause confusion.

REDUCE PAIN by taking an over-the-counter pain medication, such as aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil®,Motrin® IB, others), or acetaminophen (Tylenol®, others) about an hour before your mammogram to help ease discomfort.

Embrace Your Health.
