At what age do people get micro calcifications in their breast?  Do they ever turn into cancer if benign?

Does a tiny calcification on ovary 3 mm mean cancer?

No: These are common incidental findings. We pathologists see them in autopsies frequently. I think they're old ovulation scars that somehow calcify. If your physician is not concerned, don't be either. ...Read more
