Hello. I wanted to circle back and see what the outcome was from your mammogram. We wish you the best.
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.
