What does breast cancer look like on a mammogram?
Mammograms are X-ray images of the breast and can show early signs of breast cancer.
There are two techniques for creating mammograms. Film mammography creates a photographic film, while digital mammography creates a digital image.
 
Both methods use the same procedure to take an image. People with mammograms place their breasts between two transparent plates and squeeze them between two transparent plates to maintain their position. This will make the breast flatter so that the image will not be blurred.
 
The machine takes a picture of the breast from two angles. The specialist then examines the mammogram to see any abnormalities that may be a sign of cancer.
 
The test takes about 20 minutes. Some people may feel slight pain or discomfort.
 
How does a normal mammogram look?
The image of the breast is called a mammogram. The background of the image is black and the breasts appear grey and white. Dense tissues, including connective tissues and glands, appear white.
 
Some people have more dense breast tissue. Since the tumor is composed of dense tissue and it also appears white, this may make it difficult to detect abnormalities on mammograms. With age, breasts tend to become less dense. Low-density tissue, such as fat, appears gray on mammograms. Normal mammograms are usually mostly grey, and some white areas show healthy dense tissue. More white on the image does not always indicate a health problem. Each person's breast is different, so no two mammograms are the same. Healthy mammograms can still change in appearance.
 
A medical professional who examines radiological examinations such as X-rays or MRI scans is called a radiologist. They will carefully review the mammograms to explain the results.
 
What does breast cancer look like on a mammogram?
Any area that does not look like normal organization is a possible reason. The radiologist will look for a white, high-density tissue area and record its size, shape, and edge.
 
Breast lumps will appear as focused white areas on mammograms. Tumors can be cancerous or benign. If the tumor is benign, this is not a health risk and it is unlikely to grow or change shape. Most of the tumors found in the breast are non-cancerous. Small white spots are usually harmless. Radiologists will examine their shapes and patterns because they may sometimes be signs of cancer.
