Re: Mammogram after Ultrasound?
Do you always get ultra sounds yearly rather than an actual mammogram?
I'm thinking that maybe they want you to get the mammo beause you have't had your yearly one performed yet? because you had the ultra sound first.
usually it's the other way around. the mammo 1st, THEN the ultrasound and even further testing if you're at high risk. the 3rd test they'd order is an MRI with contrast of the breasts to get a clearer picture of the breasts.
its' much clearer than a regular mammogram and ultra sound.
it can take many many pictures, more than the standard few pictures like a mammo or ultra sound does.
did you initially have the ultra sound performed to find out what the 2 lumps are? Aren't they telling you what the 2 lumps are? whether they're masses, or cysts, or lymph nodes????
why isn't your dr. talking to you instead of the nurse?
You have questions that aren't being answered and you deserve to have answers given to you.
If i were you, I'd give the office a call so that you can rest your anxiety. answers are the best thing to an anxious mind.
let us know what happens.
