Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Previously, to avoid an off-target explanation, allow us to focus on the 'impression' part, without prejudice to the meaning the examination is trying to convey, because the 'impression' part is actually the conclusion of supporting findings.
So a mammography examination is a supporting examination carried out on the breast area to find out the tissue that is behind it, and from the results of a mammography examination performed on you, it shows that on your left breast there is indeed a lesion or abnormality, it could be in the form of a lump, which from its characteristics looks like benign lesions. These lesions are also characterized by calcium buildup and so far there is no apparent tendency towards cancer or malignancy.
The conclusion that can be drawn from the examination is that the disturbance you experience on your left breast is not a malignancy, and will not spread to other parts of the body. Generally harmless and not life threatening. But to be more certain and to avoid misunderstanding, reconfirm these results to the doctor who asked you to do the examination, to be combined with a history and physical examination, as well as possibly further investigations with a more accurate biopsy examination.
Meanwhile, you don't have to panic or worry, and communicate everything with your doctor. Ask what treatment options you have, and don't take any other treatment than recommended by your doctor. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
