Had my first mammogram screening last week, now I have to go for a biopsy
I had my first mammogram screening (just turned 41 yrs) this past Wednesday and Thursday morning the hospital called me back adamant that I come in on Friday for additional screening. Apparently the 3D imaging found two masses and the ultrasound on Friday confirmed that they are solid masses, not cysts. Both masses are just under 2 inches. I've read the report from my Wednesday mammogram and the paper work calls them 'highly suspicious'.
The radiology Dr came into my ultrasound and took a look during my Friday screening and let's just say her body language wasn't telling me she was happy. She seemed really concerned and wouldn't tell me much other than there are two masses and they needed to a biopsy on both. The hospital system hasn't updated my report with the Friday findings but this was the note on my wednesday mammogram:
"A 1.8 cm stellate mass is present within the 6:00 position of the left central breast. A 1.3 cm stellate suspected satellite lesion is noted in the 5:00 position of the left posterior breast"
On top of all of this my left breast (the one with the masses) has been inflamed/sore/achy ever since my first mammogram. My PCP doesn't seem terrible concerted and the radiologist suspect that mammograms irritated the masses. Is this normal, to have breast pain from a mammogram? I guess I don't have much of a question, I just gathered from the grim faces of ultrasound tech and radiologist Dr that there is a high chance these masses are cancer.
