Maybe microcalcifications?

Had my follow up mammogram and ultrasound this morning. Everyone at the hospital was very nice, and I should have the results by Monday. I'm going to start calling the doctor tomorrow, just to make sure he knows where we are in the process ... and how anxious I am about the results.

From the way the techs spoke this morning, I suspect there are two microcalcifications. I have been reading up on them all day, and have learned that they aren't usually, but can be, cancer. If this is the worst case scenario, I know the cancer has been caught early, which is comforting.

Next steps? I imagine my doctor will either tell me that the ultrasound/follow-up films show nothing serious, or he'll tell me we have to talk about a biopsy.

  1. More info will ease your mind because then you will have a plan. I can play with What-if's until the cows come home but that's a lot of energy for nothing.

    I'm glad to see you're hanging in there. Sending you love and cookies.

  2. Usually the techs don't even tell you that much. It's good news when they share. I'm sticking with that.

    Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

  4. I've been wondering. I agree with Kwiz that when techs share it's usually a good thing. In either case, you are moving right along here and doing all the right things.
    Yeah. What-ifs will drive you bananas. Easier said than done.
    Hugs to you.
