    Can I have ankle-brachial index screening if I have had a mastectomy?

    Yes. We take the pressure in the other arm and use that to formulate a ratio. We do this because when a patient has had surgery for breast cancer, usually lymph nodes under the arm are removed as well. Compression of the lymph system of the arm can lead to painful swelling for a long time.

    If your results fall in the categories of mild/moderate risk or high risk for bone diminishment, this does not absolutely mean that you have bone loss, although it is a possibility.
