What Does It Mean To Get A CT Scan Result, Thickening In Breast?

2nd X with breast cancer, this time I chose bilateral Mastectomy in 2021, finished treatment/Chemo March 2022.
1st CT scan with contrast comes back showing thickening in breast.

Now I wait for them to contact me for more scans? I am worried...
