On 5/29/10 I had a yearly mammogram. I'm 46 years old and all my mammograms came back normal. I picked up the report for this mammogram and I'm a nervous wreck.
This is what it says:
Findings: Dense and hetergenous breast parenchyma is again observed with minor asymmetry. Allowing for some differences of technique and positioning, there is an apparent new 7 mm irregular density in the medial tissues of the left breast seen on the craniocaudal view. This cannot be identified on previous exams. Repeat craniocaudal view as well as spot compression views are advised to see if this persists.
No pathologic calcifications.
Impression: New 7 mm density medially in left breast which needs further imaging evalution as discussed above.
Does anyone know what this means? I called my doctor who hasn't called me back yet. In October 2009, I had a hysterectomy with both ovaries removed and been on the patch (vivelle-dot) since my hysterectomy. I'm on the lowest dose .05. Could this patch have something to do with this? Isn't 7 mm big?
Any information will be appreciated.
