Mammography. Woman feeling a lump in her breast prior to having a mammogram (breast X-ray). The breast will be compressed in the machine at right, between the upper plastic cover and an X-ray plate (black) to allow a thorough examination of the breast tissue. The X-ray will reveal abnormal growths in the breast tissue, which can then be examined in a biopsy to determine whether they are cancerous.
