The purpose of mammography is to find breast cancer. Mammography alone is 90% sensitive, 10% of breast cancers are mammographically occult. However these may present as palpable masses. All palpable breast masses must be explained, even with a negative mammogram. Mammography, self-exam and physical exam are independent screening tests for breast cancer. A negative one does not dismiss a positive finding on the other.
