Hi,
This is very good news! there is nothing alarming in your report.
A BI-RADS Category 2 is a "Benign" findings" ( Negative for cancer).Meaning that your breasts are the same size and shape and tissue looks normal.Any cysts,calcifications, fibroadenomas or other masses appear benign.Also your axillary lymph nodes look normal.Congratulation! you have nothing to worry about!This is definite benign findings, just follow routine screening as recommended by your doctor.
Best wishes...
