: Is there anyone anyone out there, who had a bad mammo--leading to.. after breast reduction.
: My family phys. is not "happy" with feel (scar tissue galore) and is making undergo tests, last two mammo's have been negative. Also have to get ultrasounds.
: Have to see a breast surgeon. Scared to death.
: My biopsies were all negative.
: 2 yrs. ago.
: 2 subsequent mammo's fine, u/s fine.
: Any legitimate advice, would appreciate!
i don't think you have to worry. i have never read a study with a correlation between breast reduction and cancer. i would imagine you do have a lot of scar tissue and your doctor is just being cautious because it is hard for him to do an accurate breast exam. your risk should be no higher than anyone else.
