What is high density breasts?
I am a 44 years old and have a grandmother on my mothers side who had breast cancer. I just had a mamogram done and was told that I have high density in my right breast and need further testing. The receptionist was the person who called me and had no other information to give me other than she'll call me with the dates for further testing. What does high density breasts mean? Does this usually mean cancer in the breast? Any info would be greatly appreciated!

If you were told that you had a density seen on mammogram then there is an area that needs to be looked at more closely. This could be either by a magnified view which is concentrated on one particular area of the breast ... also an Ultrasound might be done. Your mammogram report would have been sent to your Physician and you might give him/her a call and request a detailed explanation. NO, this does not necessarily mean cancer .... it could be something as simple as some tissue that has folded over on itself and created a dense area or shadow on the film. Regards .....
