If you plan to visit UI Health for a mammogram, please remember:

  • Avoid lotions, perfumes, or deodorant on your chest area.
  • You can take over-the-counter pain medication 30 to 45 minutes before your appointment to manage any mammogram-related pain.
  • Avoid caffeinated beverage two to three days before your mammogram, as caffeine makes breast sensitive.

Walk-in mammograms are for yearly screening mammograms only. If you have a wide-ranging breast health history that may include:

  • Dense breast tissue
  • Fibrocystic breasts (breast cysts)
  • Previous abnormal mammogram
  • Experiencing pain, lumps, or discomfort in your breasts

Please make an appointment with a provider. You can also call one of our navigators for assistance.
