I am having another biopsy tomorrow. Cancer was July 2016 double mastectomy Aug 2016 followed by chemo then reconstruction. Since then have had 2 MRIs, biopsies that came back enlarged lymph nodes. Ultra sound follow up showed a change in August and last week there was more of a change. Biopsy again in the morning. It is so helpful to read what others are going through. Staying positive for benign result.

I hope your biopsy goes well and you get benign results.

I’ve had so many biopsies and abnormal findings over the years I’ve lost count - and its just mentally draining even when it’s benign.

Hugs to you

Hi, nutfarmer its always good to clear your doubt with further medical tests like biopsy, it would ease your mind. I too have so many Biopsies and still area of concern on the same breast, which they shrugg of by saying just an area of concern. So, Hope for a good and benign result.

Thank you all so much. The biopsy went well. I got a call today results no malignancy found. We are so excited.

My husband is taking me to dinner to celebrate.

I was moving furniture and heavy boxes today at work and now the biopsy site is really hurting. Probably a little too much lifting. Had to come home and take a pain pill.

It sure helps to be surrounded by others that understand.
