What advice can you give me?

Hi, last Saturday I had my mammogram and today I got its result.  It says there that, "There are scattered fibroglandular densities and suggestive retroareolar nodularities in both breasts.  Ultrasound is recommended for further evaluation.  Benign calcifications, bilateral. No definite parenchymal deformity noted.  Negative for nipple retraction or skin thickening. BIRADS CATEGORY: Need additional image evalutation.

What does those things means?  Should I go to an oncologist for this?  Last Saturday I went to an ob-gyne before I had my mammogram.  My mother last year died of Breast Cancer, and I am really worried.

Thanks.

My first advice is to have the recommended Ultrasound .... with the limited information and these nodularities seen in both breasts the chance of this being breast cancer is slight, if at all. You only see an Oncologist when you have been diagnosed with cancer .... have the Ultrasound and discuss the results with your prescribing Physician. If any further investigation is necessary he/she will advise you on the basis of your test results. Regards .....
