A note from the Society of Breast Imaging about mammograms and the COVID-19 vaccine
Some women who receive the COVID-19 vaccine develop swollen lymph nodes under their arm on the same side as their vaccine injection. This is a normal reaction that subsides after a few weeks. However, since swollen lymph nodes are one sign of breast cancer, you may want schedule your mammogram before your vaccine or wait at least 4 weeks after your second dose. If swollen lymph nodes are seen on your mammogram, your ARA breast imager may ask you to return for more imaging. Both your mammogram and your vaccine are very important for your health. If you are already overdue for your mammogram, please don’t postpone it because of your vaccine appointment. Get more information from the Society for Breast Imaging here.
