Hi Sarah

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Do not worry dear , you are free from cancer ,as per these tests.

The mammography reading states Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System Category 1(BI RADS 1) , which means it is negative for cancer morphology.

It is nice that you got yourself checked.IT is advisable for every woman to have frequent self breast examinations and mammography scans.

Take care.
