I received a chest x-ray, chest CT scan with contrast dye and an MRI would these tests show breast cancer?

Hi. I am a 41 year old woman.
Last year I was hospitalised with a severe bacterial infection. I received a chest x-ray, chest CT scan with contrast dye and an MRI. I also had a follow up chest CT scan with dye a few months after leaving hospital. This was September 2016.

My question is, would these tests show breast cancer, and secondly, would it be risky to have a mammogram so soon after these tests that use radiation .
Thanks.

  1. Hi
    Those test should show if u have breast cancer, in my opinion you can go ahead with the mammography
    Good Luck

  2. Hi..
    Yes, chest CT can detect breast lesions.
    If it is clear then there are less chances of any pathology..
    If still you have a doubt you can go for Mammography.

    Regards.
