Breast Density with multiple cyst. Recent Birads 4

I am 57. My primary care read my mammogram to say that I needed follow in 6 months. Yes, with the birads 0. I did see a surgeon. Somewhat disappointed that she did not call me prior to this all hitting my chart. I didn’t catch the Microcalcifications in non-neoplastic tissue. What does that mean?

Micro calcifications can (not always) be concerning and require a closer follow up. Since your doctor is already recommending 6 month follow up, you are already there. In certain patterns where there are many clustered together, they need to be monitored in case they start to show precancerous cells. It doesn’t always happen but it can. I am glad you are in contact with your doctor, but honestly she might have thought you would be relieved to know it wasn’t cancer. I always tell my friends who are anxiously awaiting breast biopsy results that there are two kinds of women. Those living with breast cancer and those afraid of getting it. Is there something you can do to refocus your attention somewhere else while you wait for consults?
