Test is Negative
“My mammogram was negative, so I have nothing to worry about.”
Mammograms fail to detect 10% to 20% of breast cancers, so make sure you continue to Fight Now. A study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute found that different breast cancer centers often interpret mammograms differently, so it is also possible that the radiologist reading your mammogram could make a mistake and miss seeing the cancer. Newer 3T MRI tests can pick up cancers that mammograms can’t detect. Ask your doctor about it. It is wise to be vigilant about your body even if tests show you are cancer--‐free.
