BILATERAL FILM SCREEN MAMMOGRAM:
FINDINGS: Prior mammograms are not available for comparison. The breasts are heterogeneously dense. There is extremely dense fibrous tissue in the upper outer quadrants of both breasts. This lowers the sensitivity of mammography. B.B. was placed in the region of palpable abnormality and demonstrates dense breast tissue in this region. An occasional benign appearing calcification is present in both breasts. no_discrete_mass, no_suspicious_calcification or no_other_secondary_sign_of_malignancy is demonstrated.
comparison with patient's previous mammograms is recommended. The decision to biopsy any palpable abnormality should be based on clinical grounds.
