Calcium : Calcium deposits can be present in malignant tissue, or in non malignant tissue. It sounds like you did not have your situation described to your satisfaction, or have all of your quesitons answered. I would recommend that you see a breast surgeon and have him/her review your mammogram, and give their recommendations, to be sure that you feel comfortable.

Sound benign: Some women have more sense breasts than others. This can be associated with dobro cystic changes that result in cysts and densities that grow and change with hormonal variations, both monthly as well as throughout aging. As women age these sense breasts develop calcifications that increase in number but appear benign on mammograms. Some calcifications look malignant and need to b evaluated more.
