Hello and welcome to the forum. We thank you for your question. Any updates from your contrast mammogram? Being called back is always scary but is a good thing as it means that they want to be thorough. It doesn't mean you have cancer, it just means they want to get a better look. CEDM or contrast enhanced digital mammograms are a great tool for getting a clear view. When breast tissue is dense which is not uncommon and happens more and more as we age, this type of mammography greatly helps. https://densebreast-info.org/enhanced-breast-mammography.aspx That link gives information about this type of diagnostic tool. This link talks about dense breast tissue. https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/mammogram/in-depth/dense-breast-tissue/art-20123968 In and of itself, dense breast tissue is not a concern but it makes it more difficult to detect issues or cancer and has a link to developing breast cancer in the future.
Please let us know the findings of your mammogram and we'll be thinking of you.
