calcification (KAL-sih-fih-KAY-shun)

Deposits of calcium in the tissues. Calcification in the breast can be seen on a mammogram, but
cannot be detected by touch. There are two types of breast calcification, macrocalcification and
microcalcification. Macrocalcifications are large deposits and are usually not related to cancer.
Microcalcifications are specks of calcium that may be found in an area of rapidly dividing cells.
Many microcalcifications clustered together may be a sign of cancer.
