architectural distortion
I just received a report for a repeat mammography because of an architectural distortion.  There were no calcifications, lesions, or mass.  Could someone advise if this could be cancer?

Hi,
'Architectural distortions' is disruption of the normal arrangement of the tissue strands of the breast resulting in a radiating or haphazard pattern. Although it is primarily a sign of malignancy, especially lobular invasive carcinoma, architectural distortion may also result from benign disease, e.g. radial scar or following surgery. Do you have any history of surgery in the past to the breast? Discuss with your radiologist and physician the possibile options they keeping and what would be the further plan to reach a confirmed diagnosis. Goodluck.
