How many times have you had a breast checkup, and how many biopsies have you had? I'm just trying to figure out how many times I'm going to have to go through this. I've been checked three times and had biopsies twice (second time was cancer). I just don't want to go through this every six months! Getting checked on Monday and so scared! Thanks for telling me your experiences.

Wonderful news: I had a completely clear MRI and the calcifications on the mammogram were stable so all good too! No biopsy needed!!! Feel so happy and relieved.
