Architectural distortion-So scared and anxious

Hello. I received an auto alert in my electronic medical record on Saturday morning. It showed the results of my mammogram, including architectural distortion in right posterior breast.

I never received a phone call by Friday, as they said I would if anything was abnormal. Late in the afternoon, Saturday came the letter in the mail. My doctors office and breast center are not open until Monday.

Of course I do what most do...GOOGLE!!! I had never heard of architectural distortion so I wanted to know if this was another term for “fatty or dense tissue”. Boy was I educated...and freaked out.

I am scheduled for 3D /tomography test tomorrow.

After reading so many of your stories, I am realizing this could be the beginning of much waiting.

I also have Systemic Lupus (SLE). Stress is #1 enemy of Lupus. I am trying to keep busy. Husband is my best friend and has really done well to keep me busy. My mom and dad live with us as they are both in need of daily assistance; so they keep me pretty busy too.

I do not recall how I found this sight; however, I am so grateful I did. There is a wealth of information on here and I want to thank those who have made this possible!
