40 years old and had mammogram. This is what the report says:
Breast parenchyma is heterogeneously dense. Focal asymmetry seen in upper central right breast which cannot be confirmed as stable. Additionally, an asymmetry in the superior right breast, posterior depth which appears more prominent when compared to prior studies. Additionally asymmetries seen in the upper outer left breast which cannot be confirmed as stable.
Going back for spot compression and ultrasound. Does this sound like it should be of concern, or just needs more scans to verify all is ok?
It's difficult to determine what these asymmetries actually represent. They could be shadows caused by the folding over of the breast tissue upon itself. The compression views will concentrate on these specific areas and they may be compressed out to reveal nothing. Anything that you cannot identify as 100% unremarkable is always cause for some measure of concern but I wouldn't get too stressed about it at this point. Dense breast tissue is quite common in almost any age group. Regards ....
