See answer: Finasteride-induced gynecomastia, either uni- or bi- lateral, is one of the potential side effects of Finasteride (f) that likely does not get the attention it deserves. Usually improves or resolves after stopping f but not always. Almost always benign, but rare cases of breast cancer have been reported. Usual treatment: observation only; surgery if bothersome; ?Anti-estrogen pill if painful.

I'm not exactly: sure of the question, but there are several stages of gynecomastia, and each can look different on the mammogram. So you can have gynecomastia, and the mammogram can look different in a year, without invoking any new pathology.
