Calcifications are small deposits of calcium that show up on mammograms as bright white specks or dots on the soft tissue background of the breasts. The calcium readily absorbs the X-rays from mammograms. Calcifications typically don't show up on ultrasounds, and they never show up on breast MRIs. Calcifications are a frequent finding on mammograms, and they are especially common after menopause.

Many women never have any symptoms they have breast cancer. They may not feel any different. They may also miss the telltale symptoms of breast cancer, like lumps or other changes in their breasts. In some women, that can be a sign of cancer. If your mammogram shows breast calcifications, your radiologist may recommend imaging or a biopsy.

Breast calcifications are common and most often not a cause for concern. However, there are some calcifications in the breast that might prompt further evaluation. We as breast imaging doctors know that the need for further workup is a cause of anxiety. We hope to relieve some of that anxiety by discussing breast calcifications in detail.
Breast calcifications are calcium deposits that appear as white dots on a mammogram. They can vary in type i. While many people associate calcifications with breast cancer, there are a number of other potential causes, ranging from benign breast conditions such as fibroadenomas to conditions unrelated to the breast. Historically, the primary role of detecting breast calcifications has been the early diagnosis of breast cancer. But research from suggests that calcifications may also be a marker for underlying cardiovascular disease.
