Breast Calcifications

Breast calcifications are calcium deposits within breast tissue. They appear as white spots on ultrasound and are usually so small to feel them. 
Calcifications do not always mean breast cancer. There are benign conditions that can show up as calcifications on an ultrasound. This includes old injury to breast tissue, calcium and fluid mixed in a breast cyst and arteries clogged with calcium inside the breast. 
Although breast calcifications can be noncancerous (benign), certain patterns of calcifications — such as tight clusters with irregular shapes — may indicate breast cancer. It is important that these areas be investigated, because they can help catch breast cancer at the very earliest stages. This is reassuring to women who may have risk factors for developing breast cancer later.

There are many times that a woman is not aware that she has calcifications or calcium deposits in her breasts, because they can be very small. Calcifications are often the first sign of a breast cancer. There are many risk factors that a woman may have that can increase her risks of breast cancer. Risk factors include dense breast tissue, family history of breast cancer, smoking, and reproductive cancers in the past.

The breast cancers that are associated with calcifications are often invasive. Invasive breast cancers are typically aggressive.
If you have risk factors for breast cancer talk to your doctor about non-invasive, painless, non-radioactive test as a diagnostic ultrasound combined with a diagnostic thermography to prevent a serious health challenge. Make sure that you have a healthy lifestyle which includes a good nutrition, proper hydration, exercise, lymphatic massage and a positive attitude.
Early Detection Saves Lives!
