Hi Anonymous-

I'm sorry you're going through this, because it is scary. Calcifications are not necessarily a sign of cancer. In fact, they are often non-cancerous. We have information on this topic: http://www.empowher.com/condition/breast-calcifications

I would imagine you will be having a biopsy to check and make sure just what kind of cells are in there. Hopefully the biopsy results will ease your mind. There are cases where the calcifications are in a pattern that indicates cancer, but again, a biopsy will give you your answers. I found a good link at Mayo Clinic: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/breast-calcifications/my00101

Good luck to you. Please let us know how you do.
