Re: mammogram focal asymmetrics
Asymmetric just means that the breast tissue doesn't look symmetrical or even and balanced. The fibrous tissue can shrink and cause pulling of the tissue creating this. Cancer generally shows up as clustered microcalcifications, like tiny white dots of calcium. It would also be unusual to develop cancer in both breasts at the same time. I would follow up, and perhaps ask about an MRI of the breasts, for reassurance. I don't see anything in the report to suggest cancer, but radiologists, Drs., and patients all should err on the safe side, and follow up any abnormality.
