Default Calcification?

Hi there,
I had my first mammogram last week. A nurse called with the results today and informed me that I have calcifications in both breasts. What the...?!?! The nurse explained to me that these may simply be attributed to normal aging, especially after having children -- though a very small percentage of these may indeed be cancerous. She also assured me that since I have no family history and because the calcifications are in BOTH breasts, the odds of not having the pre-cancerous kind is in my favor. And the fact that this is my first, meaning that nothing else is on file for me for comparison, is all the more reason for their wanting to take more pictures. But regardless of what she said, I'm still scared...

Anyone else have further info/experiences that may help ease my mind at this point? What I'm really wondering is this -- any chance that this can be an adverse event to a drug and/or possibly related to a CNS problem??

Thanks so much.
