Hello doctor,

I am attaching my mammograph reports. Can you please read them and provide detailed information on them?



Welcome to

Your detailed mammography report (attachment removed to protect the patient's identity) for both breasts is described as - evidence of dense fibro-glandular tissue is noted bilaterally. No obvious focal architectural distortion or asymmetry is noted. No obvious micro-calcifications are noted. Overlying skin and imaged axillary regions appear normal. Bilateral dense breasts - BI-RADS is 0. Needs further imaging: suggested compression views and sonomammography correlation. Smaller lesions may be obscured in patients with dense breasts due to the lower sensitivity of a mammogram in such cases. Also, the right-sided axilla is not seen, and the left-sided axilla is partly seen in the images. Another thing is that simple cysts are seen in both breasts on your ultrasound, according to my information. If this is the case, no further evaluation is necessary for simple breast cysts if you are asymptomatic. I hope I have been able to answer your query. Thank you.

The Probable causes:

Bilateral dense breasts.
