Spanish term or phrase: opacidades fibroglandulares confluentes
I can't find a way to translate this? Does someone know?

Context: Existen abundantes opacidades fibroglandulares confluentes, con un nódulo bien delimitado en tomosíntesis en el cuadrante inferoexterno de la mama derecha, que se correlaciona con una lesión cutánea.

Thanks!

confluent fibroglandular densities
Explanation:
I can find evidence of "confluent densities" and "fibroglandular densities", but no direct evidence of "confluent fibroglandular densities". There's plenty of references to "scattered fibroglandular densities", confluent just means the opposite.
