Complete state of terror
I'm 47 years old. On Monday I had a 3d mammogramdone. I've been waiting for the results and of course they came in tonight in my electronic chart and I had to read them. I have always had health anxiety and now, once again, I have been launched into the stratosphere with the results. I have been crying for an hour and googling (which isn't helping.) Can anyone comment on my results? I don't think I can make it through this weekend.
"Bilateral screening mammogram with screening Tomosynthesis 11/8/2021 9:16 PM
Comparison: 7/1/2015 and 1/12/2009.
Standard and Tomosynthesis views of both breasts were obtained.
The breast tissue is of scattered fibroglandular densities and fat.
Stable left mammogram in no findings suspicious for malignancy.
Now seen is a 14 mm focal asymmetry in the far superior right breast anterior
to the pectoralis muscle with areas of internal fat within it. Recommend
further diagnostic evaluation with mammographic views and possible ultrasound.
1. Right: Incomplete. We will contact the patient to return for additional
imaging of the above described findings and issue a final report.
2. Left: Negative for malignancy."
I did have a mammogram in 2015 and 2009, which were negative and were not 3d, to the best of my knowledge.
Thank you for reading.
