The breast surgeons of The Hoffberger Breast Center in Baltimore work closely with Mercy’s radiologists at The Tyanna O’Brien Center for Women’s Imaging to diagnose breast disease in the earliest stages and identify areas of concern through critical screenings including mammograms, which can detect breast calcifications.
Breast calcifications are small calcium deposits in the breast that can be detected by a mammogram. Calcifications are divided into two categories:
Breast calcifications are detected by a mammogram. If microcalcifications are detected in your mammogram, your physician may schedule a follow up mammogram in six months to see if there has been any change. In other cases a biopsy may be recommended.
Most of the time biopsies to investigate microcalcifications or clustered microcalcifications are benign, however, if cancer is present it is often found at an early stage when it is most curable.
