Cancer Faq
My bestie has a lump in her left breast. She lives in a small town, and the doctor there has advised an breast MRI. Whereas when I showed the reports here they suggested a Mammogram? Now her doctor says MRI is better as the other is just expensive. I want to know what is the difference between two, and which is more effective

most of the patients breast MRI is not required and mammography is sufficient. Breast MRI is suggested only if the patient is young, there is a suspicion of multiple lesions or if it is a recurrent cancer in the breast. MRI is more sensitive and picks up smalller lesions which might not be visible in mammography.
