Patient Data

Age: 65
Gender: Female



Case Discussion

As a general rule of thumb, any post menopousal woman who develops anything in he breast should get extra scrutiny and careful tought.

The calcifications on last year's mammogram are not lobular, benign calcifications. The orientation, the differing densities and the individual morphologies are concerning even at the intial workup.
