Spot Compression Mammogram... now Stereotactic Bx

Hi all,

My mom had her annual biopsy at the end of February. She received a notice telling her to return for a spot compression mammogram because it was hard to visualize a particular spot on her R breast.

Fast forward to today, she went in for her spot compression. When completed, the radiologist informed her that she needed to have a stereotactic breast biopsy. This is freaking me out! This is tough because this isn't the first time that this has occurred.

My mom had a regular mammogram in 2000 and they had to do a core needle biopsy. Fortunately it turned out negative. Fast forward to 2009, she had a mammogram and found a suspicious area. She had to get a FNA done. NOW THIS HAPPENS...

I'm completely stressed and can't imagine what she is going through. She told me she wanted to forgo the biopsy and wait 6 months for repeat mammogram... But she thought about it and wanted piece of mind, so she went ahead and schedule the biopsy for next week.

I know the odds of benign report is higher than bad report. It certainly helps to be able to vent about this. I wish I was able to help her more, but I can't.

How long does it normally take to get the results? Do they provide a preliminary report immediately after the procedure? Just wondering...

Thanks for reading this!

Thank God she is doing ok!!!!!

I am horrified to have this needle biopsy.

Did she have to have surgery after her needle biopsy?

Her needle biopsy turned out to be benign, so no surgery for her. After that, she had earlier screening mammograms. But not, she has gone back to the routine mammogram intervals.

When are you having this needle biopsy? Stay strong =) I can't possibly imagine what it's like, but you have to try to stay positive!
