This is Dr. David
I am a cancer doctor.
there are many types of calcifications in the breast.
there are benign looking calcifications, malignant calcifications.
there are benign calcifications which can line the blood vessels of the breast.
not all calcifications in the breast are cancerous or DCIS or invasive breast cancers.
many different cell processes can cause calcifications.
sometimes special magnification mammograms can see calcifications more clearly.
only a biopsy of the breast can 100% tell if more malignant looking calcifications are associated with DCIS or invasive breast cancer or are completely benign.
do you have her mammogram report?
I would be happy to review it with you
