A shadow on my mammogram

I had a mammogram.  Now I am having to go back for an ultrasound.  I was told it showed a shadow.  What does this mean?  My sister had breast cancer and I am concerned.


This discussion is related to Abnormal Mammogram doesn't show on Ultrasound.

A shadow on a mammogram could be something as simple as some tissue folded over on itself. Being called back for additional testing isn't all that unusual so I wouldn't be overly concerned at this point. Perhaps the ultrasound will offer a better or different view of the area in question. Best Wishes .....
