Not much difference: When your reports say or use words like: Mild, slight, it means that it is a minimal change. So you do not have to pay much attention to it although your doctor ordering such tests is obliged to interpret/explain to you what it all means. Have you gone back to see your doctor after the tests were done and completed?
