What to do if you get a call back for a second mammogram?

It’s a New Year and it’s time to be as vigilant as ever about our health. Mammograms are an important part of our routine health checkups and can provide early detection of any abnormality in our breast tissue. Men also need to be diligent about any appearance changes in their breasts as men can get breast cancer as well.  Sometimes our doctors will have patients come in if they see the slightest change in your mammogram from the previous one or an abnormality in the breast tissue.

Do not be alarmed. There are many reasons a doctor will want to take a second look. Even if you have one of these symptoms, you might not actually have cancer. Less than 10% of people called back after an abnormal mammogram have breast cancer says the American Cancer Society.

Common reasons for a mammagram callback:

Thickening of the skin.

Dense breast tissue which is when breasts have less fat and more glandular and fibrous tissue.

Asymmetry which is an area of the breast that looks different from the rest.

Retraction which is whereas area of skin or nipple is pulling inward.

Blurred focus that something is pressing on tissue.

Calcifications meaning calcium deposits develop in the breast tissue and are quite common.

Cysts that are benign, noncancerous fluid-filled sacs.

Solid mass.

And sometimes, the image was just not clear enough and needs to be retaken.

A recall mammography is a second diagnostic mammogram that is nearly identical to the screening mammogram. The only difference is that the radiologist will take photos of a certain location on your original mammogram that they thought was unusual.

Additionally, your doctor might advise a breast ultrasound which is a visual guide while performing a biopsy of the breasts. High-frequency sound waves are used in this typical noninvasive diagnostic technique to provide digital images of tissue, glands, organs, and other interior structures. Sonograms can tell breast cysts apart from solid masses. breast ultrasound as a visual guide while performing a biopsy of the breasts. The test helps the doctor identify a cyst filled with fluid or a solid tumor.

A second mammography will last for a comparable amount of time as the first. It will be determined whether a region has normal breast tissue by a radiologist and technician who has prepared for your visit and are aware of the images required.

However, ultrasound images are not as detailed as those from CT or MRI scans. Ultrasound cannot tell whether a tumor is cancer. The surrounding tissue, which is often lighter grey or white, displays breast cancer as a darker patch. Elevated risk screening is recommended annually as an addition to a mammogram for women who have a 20% or higher lifetime risk of breast cancer, is the most common application for breast MRI.

Recent research backs the utility of screening MRI for women with dense breast tissue, a personal history of breast cancer, or when a woman has just received a breast cancer diagnosis.   An MRI frequently shows the best locations for biopsies and the next stages.

The most crucial thing to keep in mind is that by getting frequent mammograms, performing monthly breast checks at home, and communicating with your healthcare practitioner about any breast changes, you are establishing yourself for long-term health.  One of several risk models determines the lifetime risk of 20% or more. They can be located online, for instance on the website of the National Cancer Institute.
