Hi,
A breast density could mean a lot of things and does not necessarily point to cancer.A density could indicate a cyst or a fibroadenoma,both benign findings.
Fibroglandular is what breast tissue is.A combination of glands and fibrous tissues describing the tissue as lumpy,or dense.
But because of an increased density in your left breast,which makes mammogram readings more difficult,your Doctor/Radiologist might recommend additional tests,to achieve better imaging of a particular region of your breast.If nothing suspicious is detected,your doctor will let you know when a follow-up is needed to make sure that no changes have occurred.
All the best.
