Hi! I’m 39 and had my screening mammogram done about 6 months ago. I was called back for a diagnostic of my right breast and an ultrasound of my left. The left was just lumpy as both breasts are very dense. The distortion that was seen on my right breast was not there in the diagnostic one so the radiologist told me she debated telling me to come back in a year but just to be on the same side come back in 6 months.
My 6 month diagnostic mammogram on the right side was last week and I immediately got an ultrasound because the distortion was back. She said it was only on one view and it didn’t show up on the ultrasound which was very encouraging but she wanted to biopsy it anyway. I had the biopsy done Friday and will hear back Tuesday or Wednesday. I’m really really scared and just looking for support. Also I was kind of confused because she also told me very few distortion cases need nothing further. She said either way (benign or malignant) I will need surgery to remove the area because it can turn into cancer.
