Yes, 3D mammos cuts back on false positives, but it doesn't eliminate them.
This could be something as simple as the way that your breast was positioned and squished in the mammogram machine, causing the appearance of asymmetry from one view. (The last time I said this to someone here that's exactly what it turned out to be.)
Or if the asymmetry is real, it doesn't mean the cause is malignant. There are lots of benign causes for asymmetry. Asymmetry in one view only and with the absence of other factors (calcifications, a mass, architectural distortion) is more likely to be benign. So it's definitely too early to worry.
When is your follow-up screening?
