I'm not sure of what to think
I am 43 years old. I had my baseline mammo at 40, everything fine. At 41, everything ok. At 42 I had an abnormal mammo. I went back 4 days later for diagnostic mammo and they said that it was a mass of tissue that they were able to spread out with the smushing of my breast during the test. I had my next annual mammo on Wednesday the 10th. I was called yesterday and told my mammo was abnormal and I have to go back on Monday. The only breast cancer case in my family is my mom's sister who was diagnosed about a year ago. I don't know my biological father or his family history.
What are the odds of having two consecutive abnormal mammograms after a normal initial test and what does it mean?
It is so hard trying to convince myself it is nothing...again.
Oh, and I do not have large, dense breasts.
