Re: call back after a second mammogram

Normally they tell you on the phone why they want you to come back. Obviously, something does not look right and they may want to do an ultrasound.

Re: call back after a second mammogram

Try not to be alarmed. I get called back every year for an ultrasound. It just means they want a closer look. I just went back again today. They found a cyst. It may go away on it's own or I may have it drained. Just try not to worry. Many people get called back and alot of us have fibrous dense tissue. Good luck!

Thumbs up Re: call back after a second mammogram

Hi Aussie

I have had several call backs after mammograms for an ultrasound. It's likely nothing to worry about.

Take care, Nadine
