Brief Answer:
Prognosis is very good with cure rate of 75%

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I have gone through your mammography report.

After hearing your history and since your mammography report is showing coarse calcification and BIRADS 2 category it is a benign condition.

You do not need to worry.

You just need to do routine bilateral mammography test and blood test for breast tumour marker CA 15.3 every 6 monthly.

Prognosis is very good with cure rate of 75%.

No treatment required at this moment.

Chances of recurrence is only 10%
