Very common: Ultrasound is often used to evaluate densities seen on a mammogram. Most often a round density on a mammogram is a benign cyst or benign breast tumor called a fibroadenoma.

My mom had breast cancer, i'm 39 and i just had a mammogram and breast ultrasound and got called back to my doctor, should I be worried?
No just follow-up: You had a screening mammogram. This test is designed to determine if your mammogram is normal or abnormal. An abnormal mammogram does not mean you have breast cancer. You can have a fibroadenoma, a breast cyst or other benign breast condition which are much more common than breast cancer. The next step if the screening mammogram is abnormal is to perform a diagnostic mammogram of the area. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Why would a radiologist have the hospital call me 24 hours after my mammogram to request that i come in for an ultrasound asap?
Mammagram was normal and ultrasound showed abnormality and was told i need a biopsy asap. And i need to call my dr immediately. Should i be worried?

I had both the same day, and the mammogram come back normal, but the ultrasound came back abnormal? Which one is more accurate?
Different: Mammogram and ultrasound look at different qualities. Mammogram is good at seeing tissue that is more dense than surrounding tissue and for calcifications. Ultrasound is good at seeing the whether those tissues are solid or fluid-filled or both. The two together, in addition to the physician's exam, help to create a more complete picture.

My mammogram came back normal but is shows that my breast tissue is scattered fibroglandular. Should I follow this up with a ultrasound? Emily
The sonogram is a test that looks at body organs with no radiation. It uses sound waves and can give us a 2 dimensional view of organs such as the kidney, liver, heart, and lungs. It can define spaces that are either solid or full of fluid. I can also guide large needles into an organ or near the spine, and can help define the area being cut open. Its a ...Read more
