Was your mammogram normal? Are you sure?

February 7, 2022

Doctors do not always follow-up with patients on abnormal mammograms.

Successful breast cancer screening relies on timely follow-up of abnormal mammograms. Delayed or failure to follow-up abnormal mammograms undermines the potential benefits of screening and is associated with worse outcomes. A recently published study highlighted some failures and delays in notifying some women of abnormal mammograms by primary care physicians in the US, potentially compromising benefits of breast cancer screening.

If you had a mammogram and have not been told the results (positive or negative) – call your doctor to make sure he or she gives you the results. No news, unfortunately, does not always mean good news. 

If you believe your mammogram was mis-read or you breast cancer was not diagnosis was delayed, we can help.
