After your mammogram, you can return to your normal activities. In a few days, either call the facility for your test results or check with your doctor. Even if you are given a preliminary reading on the day of your mammogram, always check back for the final results a few days later. Some facilities will have you address an envelope to yourself on the day of the test, and will mail your test results to you.
