Can Breastfeeding Women Have A Mammogram?

Can Breastfeeding Women Have A Mammogram?Breast tissue density increases in lactating women.

The main reason for this is the milk secretion produced in the breast tissue and filling the milk ducts, and the increase in the density of the glandular tissue that provides milk production in the breast. This somewhat reduces the sensitivity of mammography. However, in cases where mammography is necessary, it does not completely eliminate the ability of mammography to aid diagnosis. Since breastfeeding before extraction will reduce the amount of milk in the breast tissue, it reduces the density and provides a better image.
