The pandemic had many women postponing their annual mammogram. Now there's another issue that may keep them away and it's linked to the COVID vaccine.
The vaccine creates a reaction in the body that's an immune response. That could cause lymph node swelling and soft tissue swelling at the site of the injection.
Seen during a mammogram, it raises suspicion of cancer. However, in this case, it's simply a response to the vaccine.
Hear how long experts say you should wait between getting the shot and having a mammogram by watching the video of Benita Zahn's story.
