Bottom line? If and when you decide to get a mammogram, ask for a digital version if at all possible. More importantly, try to go back to the same facility time after time so that your radiologist can compare your current results to your previous ones. One last point for younger women w/dense breast tissue and negative mammograms: tumors can grow rather quickly so if you find something new/different before your next mammogram, don't wait and ignore it. Check in w/your family physician immediately for an evaluation.
