Calcifications - waiting for biopsy results
I've recently been troubled by an itchy left nipple. Saw my GP who prescribed anti fungal cream. Helped a bit but then itchiness recurred. Went back to see different GP who did full physical breast exam - found no abnormalities, lumps or anything but decided to refer me to breast clinic to make sure all was ok. Had 1st appointment on Monday- saw consultant who also could feel nothing untoward on examination. Then had mammogram & ultrasound - I was then told there was an area of abnormality in my right breast - not what I was expecting at all! They mentioned calcifications & I was booked in for core biopsy the following day which I attended.
I have to go back for results next Monday. In the meantime, I'm concerned & feel very worried - I felt quite ill informed at the clinic & because I was taken unawares I didn't really ask any questions.
Of course I've googled calcifications & found all sorts of cancer diagnoses!
Looking for any comforting/supportive advice in the meantime. I'm 65, non smoker & no family history of BC
