I ended up going to the Doctors and my results came back from my Mammogram the night before my appointment (didn't know though until I got to the doctors office). They found a mass and need to do an Ultra Sound and a Diagnostic Mammogram. This is scheduled for tomorrow morning. When I told my GYN about the patch of dry skin and flakes he said we need to start from the top and go down. He told me a biopsy will be done pending the results of the next US & Mammogram. He also told me cancer is underneath the skin (at this point I was not arguing with him - although I know Paget's can be diagnosed through skin cells and this is how it presents its nasty self!) I posted in another forum that he did seem irritated with me that I looked things up on the internet. He told me to use hydrocortisone cream. I love my GYN as I have been with him for years, however, he did get me mad this time, it was like because we had the results he did not want to hear about my problem. *UGH*! The spot has come and gone twice since last week. I will let them know tomorrow when they do the tests.
I am trying to stay positive, but there is that negativity that comes along with it too. I am trying to stay busy with getting ready for Thanksgiving. The thing that bothers me the most is I had an appointment for a mammo in June that got canceled, and it took me this long to reschedule, I should have known better to go before a problem presented itself, as my mom had breast cancer so I know this puts me at a higher risk. So rescheduling because of what I knew to be something different (itching in the nipple of only one breast and the skin change) then the mammo finding a mass, that's what worries me the most.
