Breast Health Questions

Questions for your doctor

You and your health care provider are partners in your well-being. Make sure to express concerns and ask questions, especially when it comes to breast health.

During your next routine visit, here are a few questions you may want to ask. (Provided by National Institutes of Health).

  • How often should I schedule appointments with you?
  • How can I tell which lumps are not normal?
  • What kind of lumps do I have?
  • Do I need to have a mammogram? When? How often? Or if not, why not?
  • Does anything in my background indicate I should have mammograms more often than your usual recommendations?
  • Where should I have my mammogram?
  • Did you receive the results of my mammogram? What does the report mean?

If you haven’t yet scheduled your next annual visit, be sure to do so soon.
