    Focal Asymmetry Right Breast

    Hi
    Does Anyone Know What A "focal Asymmetry" Is? I Had A Mamo And Was Called Back For An Ultrasound This Coming Week. I Am 47 And Have Had All Normal Mamo's. I Have No Pain, No Lumps. I Am So Afraid.
    Any Info Is Appreciated!

    Most of the time the breast are mirror images of each other. Sometimes an area will look different from one breast to the other. That area is Asymmetric. It can be perfectly normal. Sometimes having a mammo done near the time of a period can cause the breast to change, a bruise, a new cyst, or a change in the postion of the breast during the mammo. Don't get worried just yet.

    Hi, I just thought I would tell you that for many,many years I had breast cysts and after a while it became the standard ( for me ) to expect to have an untrasound study done immediately after the radiologist read my mammo's.
    I use to worry every time and feel DREAD all the while I was doing the ultrasounds. As mentioned, time or time of month can often bring changes. As long as you keep up regular mammograms your doing what you can pretty much to insure your health.
    Hope all goes well for you.

    I am just a year older than you and have been called back twice for ultrasounds when no actual lumps have been felt. I did end up having to have biopsies and both times the radiologist told me going into it that anytime you have suspicous areas on mammograms your chances of it actually being cancer no greater than about 10%. Hang in there and try not to worry too much.
