abstract

  • Local tumor recurrences, when associated with mammographically evident calcifications, usually have a pattern highly suspicious for malignancy, although indeterminate forms can be the only calcifications present. Characteristically benign patterns of calcifications are not observed in recurrent tumors unless they are associated with more suspicious calcifications. Therefore, women without more worrisome patterns need not undergo biopsy because of the presence of these nonworrisome calcifications.
