Trust your Dr.: Ultrasound is very operator dependent. In addition, there are things seen only during the real time exam that do not come through on the static images. Make an appointment to discuss your questions about what you see on your ultrasound. Most likely you are seeing something that can be dismissed. It is also possible that something was missed and you are right to question when it comes to your body!

Breast : Ultrasound takes some experience and training to do. One will often see areas of shadowing in areas of cooper's ligaments and there is great heterogeneity in the way breast tissue normally appears particularly in young women with lots of glandular tissue and glandular/fat interfaces. So, its good to be proactive in your health care but be cautious in reaching imaging conclusions on your own.
