Advice follow up: You need to follow through with the advice given by the radiologist, as nodular and dense breasts are often hard to "see through".

Complete the workup: You do not know yet. What is true: mammogram was not completely normal (ncreased density). Therefore, you need additional testing to try to determine the cause and significance of the finding. First step would be spot mammograms and an ultrasound of the area. Mri may also be helpful, but a biopsy may eventually be necessary to look at the cells under a microscope and make the diagnosis.
