I just recently had a mammogram done....I am 40. They had to call me back to re-do the test because there was something that looked suspicious. It turned out to be a "probable" 6mm intramammary lymph in the upper outer quadrant of my right breast. The report said "probably" and that work kind of worries me. They told me to come back in a year. Wouldn't an ultrasound also be recommended since the report didn't sound 100% sure? I'm a little worried and confused. Please provide some information if anyone is familiar with this. Thans
Speak with your doctor and explain that you are not comfortable with the term "Probable" and that you would like a more conclusive result. Request either a repeat mammo in 3-6 months or request that they perform a Breast MRI to double check this area of concern.
Thanks for the reply. I'll give my doctor a call after Thanksgiving. Are you familiar with "Intrammamary Lymph nodes"? I do not know much about them and not sure about what the normal size of the lymph node SHOULD be. Mine is 6mm. I wish I knew a little more about this and how common it is to find them on a mammogram.
