In brief: Second mammo

Difficult to speculate without details, but possibly additional imaging such as ultrasound or breast mri if the mammography workup is ambiguous.

In brief: Continued workup

The first step to screening for breast cancer is a screening mammogram.
Many times more images are needed. This is called a diagnostic mammogram. If it is still unclear the next step is a breast sonogram or a breast MRI and evaluation by an experienced breast surgeon.
