So my first mammogram (at 40 years of age) was a year ago, and I had microcalcifications which led to more images, a core needle biospy, and a surgical biopsy. Result was atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH). Had 6 month MRI in July 2019 - nothing to see. Just had scheduled yearly mammogram now, and they found a 4 mm mass that wasn't on the MRI 6 months ago. They said it looked "echo-y" on ultrasound. They didn't want to try to drain it there. So I have an ultrasound-guided biopsy scheuled a week from Friday. Earliest available. They said they'd try to drain it first at that appointment.

I hate breasts.

On a positive note, there was a wonderful woman in the waiting room who saw me start to cry when they made me wait for more imaging after the first set of radiographs. She was fantastic - came right over and talked to me.

So sorry you are going through this again just a year later. Can you get the radiology report with the Birads #? That gives you more info. If you want to try to get in earlier for the draining, you may want to call for any openings or cancellations every couple of days. Wishing you the best.

They fit me in this morning for the biopsy. They took 5 samples, so I'm guessing it wasn't a cyst.

Benign - just got the call. They said it was a cyst that had some fibrosis. I did go off birth control 12 months ago when they diagnosed me with ADH, so perhaps some hormone fluctuations contributed?

6 months of peace until the next MRI.
