The only second opinion at this point would be to have your films read by another Radiologist. If this was your first Mammogram then there were no previous studies for comparison. I do see your concern since there is some "distant" family history and a few "probablies" in there too. You might discuss this with your prescribing Physician and see if a 3 month re-check is possible rather than the 6 month. The choice is yours and whichever you feel the most comfortable with.   Regards ....
