This can be due to;
1) Fibroadenoma of breast
2) Fibrocystic disease of breast (usually it is on both the sides)

Please feel free for your follow up questions.
Chance of cancer is quite unlikely as there is a uniform density change in breast which is quite unusual finding for the cancer.

Night sweats may not be related to it. Heterogeneously dense breast tissue is a term employed where breast tissue has varying density all over. Breast tissue is normally homogenous. This heterogeneous breast tissue is commonly being seen in fibrocystic breast disease, which is a non cancerous disease.
