Hi ma’am,
How are you? Do you have a family history of breast cancer? Fibroglandular tissue is a normal finding since it is the anatomical description of breast tissue. The dense areas which are breast tissue and are normal for your age appear as shadows or show up white on the mammogram. As a woman grows older the fat tissue becomes more prevalent in the breasts and shows up gray on the mammogram. Depending on the presence of risk factors such as: personal or family history of breast cancer, early onset of menses or late menopause, prolonged exposure to estrogen hormone, late pregnancies, high fat diet, radiation, genetics, estrogen replacement therapy and alcohol, smoking or obesity, breast cancer can occur. It would be best to have your annual mammogram as well as regular self breast examinations.

I hope this helps. Take care and keep us posted.
