Breast calcifications

DS00328, DS00983, MY00303_IM01869-ans7_breastcalcificationsth.jpg Calcifications are small calcium deposits in the breast that show up as white spots on a mammogram. Large, round, well-defined calcifications (left column) are more likely to be noncancerous (benign). Tight clusters of tiny, irregularly shaped calcifications (right column) may indicate cancer.
