Firstly let me say I am glad you found us. It can be a bit scary on Google, trying to work out what might be going on. There's a lot of old irrelevant info out there.
Microcalcifications are very common, especially as we get older. It is when they form a pattern that they need to be checked out for DCIS. A biopsy is the only difinitive way to know what is going on.
In saying that, 80% of biopsies have a benign finding, so don't assume that it will be bad news just because there is something that needs to be investigated.
I know just how you feel, we all do! The waiting is the absolute worst. Fear of the unknown is a dreadful thing. We humans don't do this kind of fear, well.
I am hoping for a benign result for you. When will you hear?
Try to take it easy on yourself, the worrying won't change the outcome, but it can make you ill. Just one step at a time.......(((HUGS)))) let us know how you do!
