Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
most breast calcifications are benign
some breast calcifications can be signs of cancer.
bring patients back for additional compression views and ultrasound scans of the breast is pretty common and most of the time, additional images show no cancer.
it sounds like your doctors are just being complete and not wanting to miss anything.
don't be scared.
you will be fine.
let me know if you have questions.
