I just got a mammogram in February and it came back a 1 with bilateral benign clarifications. i recently felt a mass close to my nipple, which i can?
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
I have few scattered calcific foci in bilateral breast.No other focal lesion seen in mammogram of both breasts.Should i get worried?
Bilateral calcifications were seen in the upper right area on a baseline mammogram. Can breastfeeding cause calcifications? I just stopped nursing 6 months ago...
Yes: There are many things than can cause calcifications in your breasts. Breast tissue is very dynamic and turns over like your uterus (with each cycles). Fortunately, most calcifications are benign (not bad), and a good close-up view is all that is needed. Talk with your radiologist, and they should be able to give you an idea of what they think. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Got clinical breast exam done Bilateral mild Fibroadenosis diagonised, doctor said mammogram not needed. Should I get one?
Mammogram shows macro calcifications,& bilateral axillary sub cm nodes. Ultrasound shows normal readings. Strong family history of bc &uterine cancer.
Tested for gene?: Have you been tested for the BRCA gene yet? Breast, ovarian and colon cancer are associated with that gene. Uterine cancer usually will show a thickness in the lining of the uterus (endometrium) on ultrasound or irregular bleeding. Keep seeing your MD for regular evaluations and good luck. ...Read more

Had ultrasound and mammogram 4 bilteral male breast tenderness had for 6 mths. Why do both? Are either gynecomastia or cancer possible?
There is a heterogeneous fibroglandular distribution. There are axillary lymph nodes present bilaterally. mammogram report, any worries?
Heterogenous: fibroglandular distribution is simply an assessment of breast density, and doesn't imply that there is any abnormality. "Dense" breasts may make the mammo more difficult to interpret, and therefore may decrease the sensitivity for detecting cancer, however. Axillary lymph nodes are commonly present on mammography, and unless they look abnormal, are not a cause for concern. ...Read more
Yes but not for long: A woman's breast is squeezed as flat as possible for a couple seconds while the x ray is taken. It hurts, but it doesn't last long. Most women have no problem tolerating it. It shouldn't keep you from having it done if your doctor recommends it. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
