In addition to my user-friendly "Your breasts are normal" mammogram letter, I also saw the cold doctor-to-doctor mammogram report.
"The present examination has been compared to prior imaging studies performed at Barnes Jewish Hospital on 06/18/2009, 10/09/2006 and 09/28/2006. The breasts are almost entirely fat."
"Doctor, I need a consult. Have you ever seen breasts this fat? They're almost ENTIRELY fat." I suppose they expect me to be like milk, between 2 and 4% fat. And here mine are, almost entirely fat.
Then I started to think, what are they supposed to be made of? Cartilage? Sawdust?
As it turns out, there's a breast density scale that measures the amount of fibrous tissue you have.
So, if density is a bad thing (and some think it is), then my breasts are in the 90th percentile.
What's odd is that back in 2006, my gyno told my authoritatively my breasts were dense, then later that year I needed another test because they were too fibrous. All I can think is that I've heard caffeine contributes to the problem. Maybe they've lost their edge now that I'm off the caffeine.
Of course now I want to be the first woman to go from "almost entirely fatty breasts" to "Entirely Fatty Breasts."
