When did you have the prior surgery?

Can you type exactly what the report said?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Scattered fibroglandular density is often a benign finding.

Cancerous growth will have calcification or irregular margins, or spiculated appearance.

That would have been mentioned by the radiologist for further follow up.

I do not find this concerning.
Best wishes,

Yes, it often is a benign finding. Still, can you post exactly what the report said and answer the question about your prior mastectomy, since we don't want to be guessing.

Kind regards,
