BA and mammograms

I'm considering having BA this year after many years of wanting it done. My concern is with the detection of breast cancer. BA isn't worth my life, and with my maternal grandmother being diagnosed, the chances I will develop breast cancer has increased. If I get BA, what technology is in place to effectively spot cancer and treat it, and does the likelihood of it going undetected increase with BA?
