Do I need a mammogram if I have small breasts?

You do need a mammogram if you have small breasts. Breast cancer can occur in small breasts. The mammogram is a test used to help detect breast cancer at an early stage, and women with breasts of any size are at risk for breast cancer.
Breast cancer doesn’t distinguish between size, shape or even gender. Even men can get breast cancer. No matter what the size of your breasts, annual mammograms help detect issues early and decrease the chance of death due to breast cancer.
