Waiting to be called to schedule biopsy

I am no sure what I am looking for here. I am just overwhelmed and I guess wanting someone to help calm my fears. I will post what my report says below.

Has anyone had similar finding?

Additional evaluation performed for calcifications within the left breast.
On additional evaluation, there are two small groups of calcification as

-Grouped punctate and heterogeneous calcifications at the approximate 3:00
position of the left breast measuring 5 mm in extent.

-Grouped punctate calcifications measuring approximately 3 mm in extent
within the upper outer quadrant of the left breast.

Targeted right breast ultrasound performed within the upper inner and
lower inner quadrants.

Within the right breast at 6:00, 3 cm from nipple, there is an oval
hypoechoic mass which on real-time scanning displays indistinct margins,
measuring 8 x 8 x 10 mm. This mass is felt to correspond to the mass seen
on mammogram.

Otherwise, there are scattered benign cysts within the inner breast.


1. Punctate and pleomorphic calcifications within a regional distribution
of the right breast, upper inner quadrant.
BI-RADS Category 4B:

2. Mass with indistinct margins within the right breast at 6:00, 3 cm from
the nipple.
BI-RADS Category 4C:

3. Punctate and heterogeneous calcifications at the 3:00 position of the
left breast.
BI-RADS Category 4C:

4. Grouped punctate calcifications within the upper outer quadrant of the
left breast.
BI-RADS Category 4C:

    lfsdromero Hi sorry that you are feeling overwhelmed , we have all been there! So as far as the calcifications go depending on how they are clustered, their shapes and sizes help the radiologist decide whether they are suspicious. Many calcifications are benign however many are biopsied to be certain. I don't know if you already read this but figured I would attach

    To answer your question regarding if I have had anything similar, yes I have. Before I was diagnosed with breast cancer I had several biopsies for suspicious calcifications and mass like areas. Several of those biopsies were negative for cancer at the time and I also had a precancerous Atypical Ductal Hyperplasia. Not everything turns out to be cancer but of course early detection is the key also. I know how hard it is but tell yourself nothing has been proven yet! Try to keep busy and stay off Dr Google just take it one step at a time.

    I wish you all the best and sending positive vibes for benign results.
