Just coughed up what looks like mucky skin tissue? Could this just be hardened mucus?Was gooey and malleable but solid enough to be sharp coming up.

Had an ultrasound done told it was just dense tissue.. Does dense tissue hurt at all?? Should I get another opinion just to be safe or wait it?  Boob

Comparison is made to previous studies

 

 

 

The mammary tissue is heterogeneously dense which lowers the sensitivity of mammography. Apparently new compared to previous studies is a smoothly marginated 7mm low density ovoid nodule a

I don't have the : full report, but it sounds like there might be a new finding on screening mammography. The next step is usually a more complete imaging evaluation with diagnostic mammography and probably ultrasound. A final diagnostic code(BIRADS) for the nodule will be determined based on the imaging findings: benign(no followup),probably benign(6 month f/u), suspicious, highly suspicious( needle biopsy ) ...Read more
