Abnormal Mammogram

fpiriano Member Posts: 1


I was hoping someone can interpret my recent mammogram report. See below:


Assymetries in lateral and superior right breast will require further imaging evaluation.


Right lateral and superior assymetries for which further evaluation is recommended.

Is this something I should be concerned about?

    There's no way to know if it's an area of concern until you have the further evaluation. That's why they said you should have it. Good luck!

    Asymmetry often means that your left breast and right breast don't look just alike. There can be any number of reasons for this, including that the image is "smudgy" because of the way your tissues were arranged between the compression plates. They need more images so they can see if there is anything to be concerned about.

    Even if there is "something," it's far more likely to be benign (not cancer) than it is to be cancer. But you won't know unless you do the follow-up.
