Family History & Fibrograndular densities
I recently had a mammorgram and was called back for a second digital screening as the first shows a fibrograndular densities that measured 12 milimeters. Breast cancer history with my maternal grandmother and several aunts. I have no signs or lumps, are fibrogradular densities normal?
It is very common to have fibroglanduolar densities. Without seeing the mammogram, it is difficult to comment further.
