What to Do When Your Mammogram Results are Abnormal

Although the word is frightening, abnormal results from a mammogram are more common than you may think. An abnormal report doesn't mean you have breast cancer, but it doesn't mean that you don't have breast cancer, either. It means that you should meet with a physician to decide if you need extra tests.
