Breast calcification treatment
Your care team will create a treatment plan for your breast calcifications based on the type of
calcifications you have. When calcifications appear on a mammogram, the radiologist who
reviews your images puts these calcifications into one of three categories. These categories
serve as a way to guide the next steps in your care.
In general, breast calcifications are more likely to be in the suspicious category if they are
smaller specks, aren’t all a consistent shape or size, or are clustered together instead of scattered throughout the breast.
If your report lists the breast calcifications as “benign,” you don’t need any treatment. If you
have a mammogram report that lists calcifications as “probably benign” or “suspicious,” you’ll
talk with your doctor about additional monitoring or tests for your care.
