Residual fibroglandular breast parenchymal tissue
What does Residual fibroglandular breast parenchymal tissue mean?  A subtle region of architectural distortion is identified in the outer central aspect of the breast.  I'm not sure what this means and my MRI isn't until the end of May.

Dear tnseeking help:  Residual fibroglandular breast parenchymal
tissue is a description of 'normal' breast tissue.  Architectural
distortion refers to tissue that does not appear 'normal.'  This could refer to
an injury, postoperative change or other abnormality that is not
further described in your queston.  You may benefit from a discussion with
your doctor who can explain this further as it relates to your situation.
