I had my mammo call back. Had a 3D mammo and ultrasound, my BI-RADS is 4B and I have close family breast cancer history. I have architectual distortion and a 1.3cm mass under the AD. I'm waiting for the biopsy on Aug 12th (first avail date) and I'm freaking out! And trying not to do research, just wait for my biopsy and results. The waiting is SOOOO hard! Any advice?

Hi hhealy1127 and welcome to,

We're so sorry you find yourself here and worrying, but we're really glad you've found us. You're sure to get some great support here while you wait for your biopsy and figure out what's going on.

While you wait for your biopsy, try your best to keep your mind busy. Read a book, binge some TV, get out for some exercise, focus on a puzzle, or deep dive into work. The less you think about things, the less you'll worry and jump to conclusions!

We're all here for you. Please keep us posted with what you find out. Sending you good thoughts!

Hi hhealy! Of course you're worried! Please don't bing/google. Stick with this site for info or you'll end up down a bad rabbit hole that will tell you many things likely not even related to your situation. That will be tough - the long wait for biopsy though also not that unusual - often a week or so depending... You could call every so often to see if they have a cancelation. It won't help much if they only do biopsies once or twice per week like in my area.... less of a likelihood they'd get you in earlier though worth a call or two.... Do what you can to keep yourself occupied with enjoyable and/or relaxing activities while waiting - and you will still worry. Keep in mind BIRADS 4 comes back benign in about 80% of biopsies - I hope you are one of the 80%!
