What Is Breast Calcification? Is It Dangerous?

What is breast calcification? Is it dangerous or cancerous? How do they remove them?

Answer

Ambu, Phyllis is right. Macrocalcifications are quite normal, as are microcalcification. When microcalcifications cluster or form a pattern, rather than appearing randomly, they bear watching. They're like a shadow of cancer, a sign that cancer might be going to develop; they're not cancerous in and of themselves. So unless the microcalcifications change their pattern, they're nothing to pay attention to. And even if they cluster, it just means they bear watching; it doesn't absolutely mean you'll get cancer. Good luck - PJH
