Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

Limited information exists regarding breast health in the transgender population. In this article, we review transgender terminology, barriers faced by transgender patients, current breast care screening recommendations, and normal and abnormal imaging findings in this population.

CONCLUSION:

Health disparities in the transgender population continue. Educating physicians on the breast health care needs of transgender patients is important for improving their care.
