Hi,
Fibroglandular density" only means that the tissue in the breast is dense, usually, this is seen in both breasts, not one more than the other.Having breast density ,makes if difficult to detect certain abnormalities and for that reason,additional tests might be considered to evaluate the breasts, such as ultrasound or MRI. Also a breast exam by your doctor is a good idea to be sure there is not something that can be felt .
Best wishes...
