About Abnormal Mammograms

An abnormal mammogram simply means that the mammogram images show areas of the breast that look different from normal breast tissues. This can be due to various conditions, most of which are not cancer. However, an abnormal mammogram usually requires further evaluation to ensure optimal breast health.


If your mammogram is abnormal, additional imaging studies may be necessary. This can include additional mammogram images, breast ultrasound, or breast MRI. In some cases, a biopsy, where a small amount of tissue is taken from the suspicious area and analyzed in the lab, might be needed.
