If am under age 25, is an ultrasound of my breast a better choice than a mammogram?

This is a discussion to have with your provider.Traditionally, a breast ultrasound may be ordered for a specific area of pain in a patient who has not been pregnant, as the tissue is generally denser than after a pregnancy.  Overall, there are many reasons that may make one imaging modality preferable over the other, or ultrasound may be used in conjunction with another procedure for further diagnosis.
