Re: first mammogram - what is this?
You did good girl!!!! You went someplace else, got better care, and more information. You are feisty enough to be your own best advocate. When do you have the biopsy? PLEASE remember, the vast majority of these "cysts" turn out to be benign. It is standard practice for a radiologist to error on the side of being too careful. Breast biopsy's are soooo common and so many of these turn out to be nothing. The trouble with all of these biopsy's, you usually only hear of the ones that turn out to be BC. Many, many, more are NOT. There is no drama in benign breast biopsy's.... no juicy stories. Try to keep your imagination in neutral until you get the result. I have been where you are and it was nearly impossible for me to stay calm.... I cried, I was sick, I made myself miserable.... it was a waste of time. You did an excellent job of being an advocate for yourself. Be strong, and take care, Sharon
