Thanks very much for responding, it makes me feel a little better knowing most of the time its cyst etc. I have never felt this before but I have to be honest I don't do the exam as much as I should. I lost alot of weight about 4 years ago when down to 88 pounds with a flare up, and have gained back about a 100 so I'm hoping its fatty tissue. I think as soon as we hear lump or mass we automatically think of cancer. Thanks again and will let you know how it goes..
Well I had my mammagram on Monday, they called me yesterday to tell me I need a ultrasound done. Why would I need a ultrasound done, doesn't the mammagram show anything they need to see. What would they be looking for in the ultrasound I was scared before the mammagram now I am really scared. Any advice would be really needed here.
You probably need an ultrasound because you have dense breast tissue. It's a logical next step after a mammogram. It's a tool to help them determine what's going on. It doesn't mean there's anything wrong necessarily. So hang in there and let us know what happens.
Thanks for all the advice it sure does help. I had my ultrasound on Tuesday now its just a waiting game for the results. When they were doing the ultrasound the tech told me to wait he had to show the pic to the specialist before I go, he came back and said he wants more pics but on a different part of the breast I hope that isn't a bad sign. I was at my doctors office on Wednesday he said the mammo showed a lump in the breast and than he used some big word I don't understand, he said depending what the ultrasound shows next step is seeing a breast specialist. I had my mammo and than the next day the hospital called me back so I didn't get to see the doctor before I had the ultrasound and all the tech said he they saw a lump and need to find out more. This waiting is awful. I will let you know when I get the results of my ultrasound.
