How To Detect Abnormalities In The Breast Such As Tumors Or Cancer?
afternoon, I want to ask about the problem of density in mammography films.
From the information you have provided, to evaluate a case of a breast tumor, whether benign or malignant, an integrated examination is required, starting with a physical examination, mammography, or biopsy. Therefore, the density of mammography needs to be confirmed by physical examination and further examination to determine the possibility of tumors in the breast.
Regarding the density of tumors in the breast, benign tumor formations can range in density from quite fatty, low, to iso, so it can range from 10%-74% density; while for cancer it can reach more than 75% density. Density can use Boyd's scale classification for mammography.
To get more detailed information, you can discuss with a radiology specialist for an examination and evaluation of your momography results. And continue further examination with your surgeon. In this way, all information related to your complaint will be known to you.
Thus the information that we can convey, also read the density of mammography.
