Confused is the mass cancer

MAMMOGRAM:

Tomosynthesis 3D and 2D imaging of the breast(s) were performed.  Current study was also evaluated with a computer aided detection (CAD) system.

Breast density: Heterogeneously dense, which may obscure small masses.

No suspicious masses, calcifications, or other findings are seen in the left breast.
In the slightly outer right breast there is an asymmetry only seen on the CC projection for which additional imaging is recommended.

Mammo BI-RADS 0: INCOMPLETE - NEED ADDITIONAL IMAGING EVALUATION


US BREAST COMPLETE BILATERAL

Ultrasound evaluation was performed including examination of all four quadrants of the breast(s) and the retroareolar region(s).

No suspicious abnormalities were seen sonographically. In the right breast at 12:00 location 1 cm from the nipple there is a stable mass measuring 0.4 cm

So, the first finding resulted in your needing to have the ultrasound, correct? I'm curious why they listed your birad as 2 in that and 0 for the first. Because of the stable mass? But they say it is benign? Did the biopsy it at one time? Sorry, just trying to understand. I had a bi rad of 5 after a mammogram due to a host of issues with some calcifications I had. But they turned out to not be cancer. Thank goodness. It's a scary time when being evaluated, isn't it?
