Mammo/Ultrasound While Lactating
I am a 34 year old woman who has been getting mammograms/ultrasound for the last few years.  My mother was my age when she died from breast cancer so doctors have been sending me for an annual mammo (sometimes accompanied by ultrasound) since I was 29.  I did not have one last year because I was pregnant and I have been breastfeeding since January when my son was born. I would like to do extended breastfeeding (for at least another year or so) but I also don't want to take any unnecessary risks by not having a mammo/ultrasound.  Is it possible to do so while lactating and can it be read accurately?  Should I go to a specialized center or physician?

Thank you.
