Probably ok: Breathing during a mammogram could cause motion blurring. However Mammo techs and radiologists are taught to look out for that and if significant motion is seen a mammogram is typically repeated, either right after the tech checks the images or after a radiologist reviews it.

It depends, as alway: Ground glass opacity typically refers to an area of increased density in the lung on X-Ray or CAT Scan. This could reflect infection, inflammation or scarring or even be an artifact. Vessells and bronchi (air tubes) make up the hilar structures on X-Ray. Hilar abnormality could be related to normal asymmetry or enlarged lymph nodes. Both findings could be clarified with CAT Scan if your PCP agrees

Likely a normal finding: What you are describing most likely represents a normal corpus luteum cyst, which is what's left after an egg ovulated from an ovary. It will often persist for a few weeks even after a miscarriage.
