I'm not quite sure what you mean by thickening of the breast wall. If the breast tissue is more dense than usual this could cause the tissues to be described in this way. Without benefit of more information I find it impossible to adequately answer your question. You might discuss this in detail with your Physician as I presume that you have had some type of examination to arrive at this conclusion. Regards ....
Thickening of the breast wall is one among many symptoms that may be suspicious for breast cancer, but as with all symptoms, something like this does not usually occur in isolation. I think this is why they want to do a repeat mammogram, and am I correct that this was picked up on a recent mammogram?
