Dense Fibroglandular Tissue
Transverse&longitude sonographic evaluation on left breast was performed.dense fibroglandular tissue is noted at 12to1:00position at site of pain mean?
The body is composed of tissue that are classically described as beiing derived from three basic embyonic layers known as the endoderm, mesoderm and ectoderm that then differentiate into the structures that compose the body such as skin, soft tissues, bone, muscle, organs, etc. Stem cells are not differentiated and have the potential to ...Read more

2 Ultrasounds 4weeks apart on solid lump in fatty tissue,first scan there was no bloodflow to lump second scan shows a bloodflow what does this mean?
Error, Nothing, Flow: The blood flow analysis depends on the "Doppler signal" that is detected by the ultrasound machine. The technicians may have set the threshholds differently on the 2 images. If so, the same tissue can show a Doppler signal on 1 image & not on the other (tech error). At your age, 4 wks is not enough time for fat to grow new blood vessels; but ONLY a BIOPSY will tell you if it is a tumor/cancer.TTYD ...Read more
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
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.
Likely mucous: I would consider getting a full check up if there is concern. A doctor could check your ears, throat, listen to your lungs. If this is a single episode observation would be reasonable. Otherwise see a doctor immediately. Good luck ...Read more
I pooped a piece of meaty tissue the size of a quarter. It's bright red and squishy on the putter yet hard and solid. Should I go to the emergency room? I'm not experiencing pain but I am worried. Thank you.
Possible hemorrhoid?: Your description sounds to me like a hemorrhoid. They usually are at the end of your large intestine and sometimes might just break off and come out. Could be a polyp too. You seem to have saved it. If so the doc you bring it to may be able to send it to a pathologist for a definitive answer as to what it is. ...Read more

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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Mom mammogram done and has been asked to
Come in for more images aday later. She has dense tissue in her earlier mammo. Whats reason to call her again?
Additional imaging: to further evaluate a potential abnormality, or an area not clearly visualized, occurs in about 10% of all screening mammograms(and probably at least 15% of baselines). 80% of the time it turns out to be nothing of concern. Of the remainder that go to biopsy, 80% of those turn out benign. So the odds favor a benign etiology, but in a small percentage of cases there is a cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can an area of dense breast tissue just appear within a year of a mammogram and can the area disappear?
Yes: Dense breast tissue can come and go depending on when the mammogram was performed as it relates to your menstrual cycle. Changes in weight can also effect breast density as well as the technical issue of how much the breast was compressed (squeezed) when the mammogram was performed. Lots of variables. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
