Alternate Names : Mammogram
Breast tissue that shows no signs of a mass or calcification is considered normal.
What do Abnormal Results Mean?
A well-outlined, regular, clear spot is more likely to be a noncancerous condition such as a cyst.
A poorly outlined, cloudy area is more likely to suggest breast cancer. However, some cancers may appear well-defined.
Sometimes, the doctor will use ultrasound to further examine your breast and determine the next best step. When findings from a mammogram or ultrasound look suspicious, a biopsy is performed to determine if it a cancerous or noncancerous condition.
