Your exam result:
We found new calcifications in the images of your right breast, but we can't tell if they are cancerous from this test alone. We will need to perform another mammogram to get a closer look.
Your breast density: 2
Density is determined by the ratio of fat vs. gland tissue in your breasts. 1 is the lowest density (mostly fat), and 4 is the highest (mostly gland tissue). All of these numbers are totally normal and do not affect your risk of cancer.
This part of the report describes what we saw in your scan.
There are scattered areas of fibroglandular density in the right and left breasts.
Your breasts contain slightly more fat than gland tissue (illustrated in the previous section). This is normal.
In theof the right breast at , , approximately 4cm from the nipple, there are which are and suspicious. No associated or . No additional worrisome .
In the upper outer part of your right breast, there are new mineral deposits that weren't there on your last mammogram. These mineral deposits, or calcifications are varied in shape. This type of mineral deposit can sometimes be a result of breast cancer. The rest of your breast is normal.
This is what we recommend based on the findings above.
