The findings on your mammogram report do not suggest breast cancer.
Parenchyma basically refers to the "normal" substance of the breast tissue.
Fibroglandular is what breast tissue is.A combination of glands and fibrous tissues and this is also "normal" It describes the tissue as lumpy,or dense.
Because you have dense breasts,which makes mammogram readings more difficult,your Doctor/Radiologist might recommend an Ultrasound if more information is mentioned on your report.If nothing suspicious is detected,your doctor will let you know when a follow-up is needed to make sure that no changes have occurred.
It's a good practice to regularly do your SBE (self breast exam) every month, one week after the start of your menstrual cycle and if you detect anything unusual,you should contact your Doctor .
From what you stated in your post, I really wouldn't worry about it.

thanx a lot sir.. but there's an unbearable pain.. so what could i do.. i mean as u said its not cancer then what could be the reason.. and apart from pain i noticed a white spot on nipple.. and an unusual stiffness in breast..

Breast pain is almost never associated with breast cancer. The discomfort you are experiencing could be due to hormone levels. If the pain is unbearable, it would be a good idea to consult a Breast Specialist who can recommend an appropriate course of action to alleviate your breast pain.
In the meantime, try wearing a good supportive bra to reduce breast movement. Also reducing caffeine intake (coffee, tea, soft drinks, chocolate) and maintaining a low fat diet rich in fruits, vegetables and losing excess weight may reduce breast pain by stabilizing hormone levels.

The white spots on you nipple, could be fungal infection which can occur in the nipples or breast tissue. I would advise you to see your doctor to prescribe some type of medication if fungal infection is suspected.
Take care.

Hi again,
I think you should continue taking primrose capsules because it can help relieve the discomforts of PMS (premenstrual syndrome), menstruation, and fibrocystic breasts.
You could also ask your Doctor to refer you to a Breast Specialist who deals with all kinds of breast issues, from breast pain and soreness, to breast infection etc….
What’s important is that you can reassure yourself that you’ve seen the health-care professional best able to assess and evaluate any breast problems you might have.
Best wishes..

You are welcome,
I am sorry but I have no idea about the red mark you mentioned. You could ask your Doctor or the pharmacy or any herbal supplement shop.
