    I have a 3x5 inch lump in my left breast. My diagnostic mammogram is scheduled for Jan. 5th. (1)...

    Do you know why they say do not consume caffeine drinks up to 48 hours before the mammogram? (2) Does caffeine skew the results to make the lump be worse than it is or appear better than it is?
    Thanks for your help in advance!
    I'm sorry about your sister. Best wishes to you and yours, Healing Seeker

    I don't know why, unless they plan to use some type of contrast dye
    and since caffiene acts as a diueretic, the dye would be excreted faster and wouldn't be in sufficient quantity in the circulation. I am only guessing. I don't know why. Wishing you well. Sorry I didn't see your question sooner.
