Hi,
Nodular breast parenchyma,simply describes breasts tissue that is dense and not uniform.It really does not mean anything significant as these findings do not increase one's risk of breast cancer.
However these nodular densities do make the mammogram readings more difficult and your radiologist may request continued follow up or additional tests such as a breast ultrasound or a MRI if he /she thinks that there is something suspicious.
Best wishes...
