I had the smallest dimple barely noticeable so I went to the walk-in ( I have no gp). I ended up seeing a physicians assistant who i don't think had ever done a breast exam as it was not at all a thorough exam. I requested a mammogram and followed up after hearing nothing. Turns out the referral was sent to the wrong place! I finally got one a few weeks later. Mammogram results were normal but due to very dense tissue I was scheduled an ultrasound just to be thorough I was told. Another 5 weeks past and at the ultrasound they ended up doing 3 core biopsies. Needless to say I was shocked! I'm very worried as the biopsy was close to the indentation. Also as a side note my dog always always smells that area when I have held him for the last several months and that also encouraged me to pursue this; yes I realize that sounds crazy lol. I may have rescued him but he just may save me ❤️. So now the dreaded wait 😔.

MVR I hope your sweet doggie's nose is wrong just this one time. It isn't crazy to connect with your pet in that way - for me it was my little black cat - well along with other symptoms.

So glad you have pursued proper imaging and been your own advocate in the follow up. Sending you all my best for a benign result.

First, I'm glad you got the appropriate tests. Second, remember that most biopsies are benign. It's also possible that there's something wrong that isn't cancer, like maybe a little spot of infection.

Do you know when you will find out the test results?

@janewhite I was told 10 days by the radiologist but the aftercare papers for the biopsy said 7-10; it’s been 7 days today. The crappy thing I saw that the results are going to a walk-in dr that I haven’t ever even seen. My excellent GP took early retiremen due to Covid

I got my results yesterday and the biopsies were benign. The radiologist made a note that I have extremely dense tissue and breast MRI’s should be done to keep an eye on an tissue changes as opposed to mammograms. The don’t offer 3D mammogram where I live
