Hi,
Nodular density refers to fibrocystic changes which is not a risk factor for breast cancer, many women have these changes which are usually benign.
However this condition makes the mammogram imagery more difficult to read and interpret.
For this reason radiologists recommend a spot compression mammogram to achieve better imaging of the breast.
I know, it's very stressing to be called back for additional tests,but try not panic,most often things turn up to be alright and I hope it will be the same for you too.
Wishing you all the best ...
