Hi there
 
Never done this before but just had my first mammogram and have been called back - asymmetric density detected - pretty scared - mostly thinking about my kids -
 
I go back the day after my birthday - hard to celebrate !! confused
 
All my best thoughts to all of you out there -

Hi there! We have had many newbies being called back after the first mammogram recently. You can find lots of posts to read on this first page. Being called back to have a second mammogram is not unusual. You need to listen carefully or better yet ask for a copy of the report from the radiologist to read, discuss and keep. We can help with terminology. There is no sure way of knowing if something is malignant or benign without a biopsy. Hugs MK
