Can I Do Breast Ultrasound 2 Days Before Menstruation?
Afternoon, I am 32 years old, is it okay if we do 2-day breast ultrasound before menstruation. And will it affect the results of the ultrasound itself? Or do we have to wait for the menstrual period to finish first. Thank you.
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
In examining the condition of the breast, the easiest method is to use the BSE method (Check Your Own Breasts). This examination can be done by yourself by removing clothes and standing in front of a mirror, BSE examination aims as screening for breast lumps that you can do yourself easily at home.
There are also additional examinations such as breast ultrasound or mammography. In the ultrasound examination (Ultrasonography), the breasts will be examined using the USG probe which aims to see the condition of breast tissue. On ultrasound examination of the breast, it should be done more than a week before menstruation or during menstruation, because it can cause discomfort in the breast or pain in the breast during the examination.
To determine the ultrasonography schedule, it is better to consult with a doctor regarding the recommended ultrasonography regarding the availability of the best time and conditions for investigations after anamnesis and physical examination of your condition.
