hi, just had my 1st mammogram and i've been ask to do another mammogram & an ultrasound due to "architectural distortion on the left outer upper quadrant of the breast".What does this mean??never had breast surgery or any form of breast injury before but was diagnosed with radiculitis on the same area.
Architectural distortion is the disruption of the normal arrangement of the breast tissue. This can be indicative of cancer but can also be due to scarring from injury, surgery or infection. It always needs further investigation to determine the nature of this abnormal finding. Regards .....
