New here, please help with anything
Hi! I’m new here and very nervous and anxious. I have never had a negative mammogram in 30 years. I’m 66 years and my recent mammogram shows a mass. It was only 12 days ago that I found a lump on my breast between my nipple and my collarbone on the left side of the right breast. It’s very painful so I thought it could’ve been a cyst which I also never had before. The pain feels like a stabbing pain. I was due for my mammogram this month and I had it done 4 days ago. My doctor called me with the results and was very rude considering the way she usually is. It was like she didn’t want to answer any questions and I get it but I said to her “can the mass be anything besides breast cancer?” and she said to me “what else could it be”! And she said the microcalcifications were highly suspicious. Here are the results. I’m scheduled tomorrow for a diagnostic mammogram, and a bilateral ultrasound. Can someone give me some kind of information. I definitely am thinking the worst with all this going on. My aunt passed from breast cancer. Thank you. I appreciate any insight you can give me.
