Definition


Micro calcification of the breast is an accumulation of calcium in the breast tissue. In general, breast micro calcifications are not responsible for any symptoms. Their presence is usually discovered after an x-ray of the breasts. The doctor may base his diagnosis on the appearance of micro calcification of the breast to determine if the cause seems benign, as in most cases like calcified cysts for example, or if there is a risk of breast cancer. In this case, a sample of breast tissue can be made for further laboratory analysis.
