Im stressful for my first mammogram followed by ultrasound
First of all, I found this site very helpful with many knowledgeable people. I had my bilateral breasts ultrasound last week and here is my result. I was told I have to do biopsy, but I have an anxiety and stressful for my upcoming biopsy and its result. I have known nothing at all about this as this is my first time mammogram experience. I am planning for results that I have cancer, but anyone knows if this is considered early stage or later stage? Any help or comment would be greatly appreciated.
