The findings in your wife's report do NOT indicate breast cancer.
Glandular Parenchyma basically refers to the "normal" substance of the breast tissue.
Although all seems normal,according to the report,there is an increased echogenicity and vascularity change within the breast tissue indicating an inflammation called Mastitis.
This condition is benign and your wife should not be overly worried about it.However,if mastitis is left untreated,an abscess can develop in the breast tissue that may require surgical drainage.
Mastitis can sometimes be stubborn and difficult to treat, but eventually with a proper course of antibiotics along with painkillers this problem is usually resolved..
All the best to both you and your wife..
