For all Mammograms - Please do not wear deodorant, talcum powder, body powder, or lotion in the breast or underarm area on the day of your exam. Please wear a 2 piece outfit. If you have had a mammogram at another facility, it is helpful for the radiologist if you are able to bring those films with you for comparison. To reduce any pain you may experience during the mammogram, you should abstain from drinking caffeine for a week prior to your appointment. We also recommend that you take Tylenol one hour in advance of your appointment, pending your physician’s approval.
