A mammogram is the "gold standard" screening test for breast cancer. It's well established that yearly 'grams will DX cancers well before they are palpable, leading to earlier diagnoses and saved lives. All experts agree to begin yearly mammograms by age 50; many (including myself) believe the pro's outweigh the con's to begin at 40. Regrettably, less than half of all women ...Read more
Please answer: what means ill marginated focal asymmetry of low density in mammogram? Should i be worry?
Probably not.: A focal asymmetry is one that is seen in 2 views on a mammogram (the top down view and the side to side). "low density" means if is more likely to be benign (not malignant). But it must be further evaluated with additional mammographic views, ultrasound and rarely MRI may be required. A six month follow up mammogram may be recommended if the work up determines that it is 97% likely to be benign. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I received my mammogram results which found scattered fibro granular density of 30-50% should I be concerned?

Focal densities: A "density" is a very generic term. There are normal and abnormal densities in the breast. Was this reported on a screening mammo, and were additional views recommended?

Please tell me, could a woman taking bioidentical hormone replacement have a finding of assymetric density in a mammogram?
My mammogram birad is 0 with asymmetrical increased density in my right breast. Does this mean cancer?
Not necessarily : Birads categories are just a shorthand way of communicating. Zero means test results are not certain, and you need another test to find out what's going on. You may need a close up mammogram, ultrasound, or maybe even a biopsy. In my experience, about 80% of the time it turns out to be something benign. Do follow up about it to be sure. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
53 yrs old. Recent digital mammogram informed I have dense breast tissue, negative for ca. Should the results be trusted because of density.
Probably: If you have no added risk factors such as a history of brca gene positive, strong family history, prior breast cancer, palpable mass etc. Then all you need is annual breast exam/mammogram. Added risk factors may indicate need for MRI and, in that case, you may want to discuss this concept with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
