Biopsy Monday and wigged out
I went in for a US and mammo for unrelated issue. I had an inflammed Montgomery Gland that had healed - no other issues but still looked wonky so doc said, I think it's a normarl artifact for you but lets just get an US to be sure. Well, the place I go requires DM whenever a US is ordered.
Mammo came back normal, US did not - they found a 2.0 x 0.8 x 0.4 cm area that they believe is a papilloma. They explained they think it is benign but I go for biopsy on Monday and I am completely wigged out. My reg mammo would have been July and now wondering many, many things. Why didn't this show up on the mammo (I do have dense tissue), do I need one on the other breast, why did they find it when it's not directly under or near the inflamed MG?
I am worried that it will require a surgery even if it is benign because papillomas from what I have read can turn into cancer and many have weird cells when they are removed.
Anyone have an advice? Can they REALLY tell that this thing is benign and / or is a papilloma?
I have been getting mammo's since 2005 or so and am 51 yo.
Thanks for any input. I have no friends here and just my hubs, I have been pacing the floor when not working today. I didn't sleep and got literally one hour of sleep last night.
