Hello! Just had my 3D mammogram yesterday and have got a callback for an ultrasound. My last yearly mammogram, Aug. of last year was normal. I have had enlarged axillary nodes for over a year now, and 4 ultrasounds of those nodes, all which were normal. I still do have raised nodes. In November I had an MRI of the nodes, which showed nodes normal, but, an abnormality in the breast, which was needle core biopsied, and was a benign breast lesion. Now radiologist sees a spot in the area where I had the biopsy. Thats the reason for the Ultrasound. Could this just be scar tissue or something from the biopsy? Very concerned and worried!
