Went for a mammography - results are 7mm circumscribed mass, left breast 12 oclock axis. It also said the breast tissue in heterogeneously dense and no suspicious microcalcifications or areas of architectual distortion are seen in eith er breasts. My question is can this be cancer? Thanks for your help
Went for a follow up mammography/sonogram. They took some additional mammography pictures and they sent me back to the waiting room. The tech came out and said they wanted to take one more picture. They wanted to this picture the same way as the original mammography. After awhile she came out and said that they no longer see the 7mm circumscribed mass and that I do not have to do the sonogram. Is this possible that the mass would disappear? What would cause it to disappear? Thank you for answering my questions.
