Question: I just got a recall back from a mammogram app. I'm very scared, what could it be if not cancer?

Brief Answer:
Better to get an FNAC and/or biopsy

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query, albeit short and specific.
Noted about the recall back from a Mammogram app - wants to know what it could be if not cancer.
The possible benign lesions at your age are:
Duct ectasia and papilloma.
Fibroadenosis and cysts.
Mammography in itself is suggestive a specific cause but is not the definite answer.
Ultrasonography helps further.
But the definite cause can be found only by FNAC and/or Biopsy which should be undertaken as soon as possible.

I hope this answers your query and helps you in getting an early and accurate diagnosis and reduced the stress and anxiety.
