I have a family history of breast cancer (sister diaganosed at age 30). I went for a routine mammogram two days ago and noticed on the screen a black round spot (quite large). I have finished breast feeding six weeks ago and when breast feeding could feel a small lump. I cannot feel that lump now. I am very anxious about the black spot on the mammogram screen and am not seeing a breast consultant for approx. three more weeks. Can you advise on this please.
1.Black thing what generally seen on x-ray is fat tissue / air. 2.If you are able to feel the lump and there is a black spot - possible cause could be fat containing lump. 3.If the margins of the spot are rounded with clear borders - its more of benign cause. 4.An ultrasound correlation is needed to confirm the finding. 5.If tenderness is there some pain killers would help until evaluate the cause. Good luck.
