Calcifications can be just that, calcifications. But, they may be situated in a manner that is suspicious of pre-cancer. Be sure to get that mini done asap. The earlier b/c is discovered, the easier the treatment. If they are suspicious after the mini, they'll want to do a biopsy.

Until then, they won't know for sure. Let us know what and when you will be having your next tests.

Deep breaths. Microcalcifications MAY be an indicator that cancer is present, but not always. I am a not-always case in study. Mine were found four years after my lumpectomy under the incision scar. But, they were benign. It is important to follow up and find out what might be lurking underneath the calcifications. MRI should provide more answers. Good luck and let us know what you find out.
