Objectives: Evaluate quantitatively the mammography in Brazil in the years 2012 and 2014. Methodology: Quantitative study having as research sample the detectable changes in mammography. The data were taken from the DATASUS system, in the category of the Mortality Information System (SIM / SUS). Results: There were registered 759,312 cases of breast lumps; 113,503 of breast microcalcifications and 15,034,033 of axillary lymph nodes. For breast lumps the highest percentage was in the Southeast region, 424,783 (55.94%). In addition, it was showed a decline in diagnoses, which in 2012 was 351,495 (46.29%) and fell to 158,582 (20.88%) in 2014. The other sectors surveyed followed the same pattern. The breast microcalcifications in the Southeast with 76,734 (67.60%). And the decrease of 2012, 51,925 (45.75%) for 2014, 26,379 (23.24%). Also the axillary lymph nodes in the Southeast with 8,571,241 (57.01%) and a decrease of 7,024,523 (46.72%) in 2012 to 3,152,259 (20.97%) in 2014. For breast lumps the age group of highest incidence was 45-49 years old, 150,369 (19.80%). While microcalcifications, 23,745 (20.92%), and axillary lymph nodes, 2,851,891 (18.97%) had a higher incidence in the same age group, 50-54 years. Conclusion: The greatest records made in the Southeast region is related to the larger number of inhabitants situated therein. However, there is a decline in the records of the findings, justified by technological improvement. Finally, age (45-50) is confirmed as a risk factor for possible breast changes. Key word: breast cancer.
