Hi,
This is a description of what was seen on your mammogram films. In order to decide if the nodule is suspicious enough to require further testing, your radiologist will look at the edges,called the margins.If the margins are smooth ( I suppose that's what the radiologist meant by "net edges") and the lump is round or oval,(Could be a fibroadenoma or a cyst) it is most likely benign findings.
There is a BIRADS score assigned on your mammogram report.BIRADS is a quality control system,used by radiologists after interpreting mammograms,ultrasound and MRIs.
This system allows radiologist to categorize the findings by numbers.The scores go from 0 to 5.The higher the number the more suspicious is the abnormality.You could call your radiologist to find out what your BIRADS category is.Depending on your score, you and your doctor will know if these nodules are nothing to worry about, or if they have to be monitored every 3 to six months, or biopsied if the score is 4 or higher.
Best wishes...
