Dense breast no path: A mass, with or without calcifications, is another important change seen on a mammogram. Masses are areas that look abnormal and they can be many things, including cysts (non-cancerous, fluid-filled sacs) and non-cancerous solid tumors (such as fibroadenomas). Cysts simple fluid-filled sacs ( simple cysts) or can be partially solid (complex cysts). Md looks for calcification a consider biopsy.
