I am 51 and after my regular yearly mammo I received a call back from women's diagnostic that radiologist wants me back for a spot compression. Mammo tech said for calcifications. After mammo tech said don't get dressed until she shows pictures to radiologist to make sure she got clear pictures. She came back and said that results will be faxed to my doctor and he will call. This was two days ago and I'm hoping since my doctor hasn't called yet that I don't have to worry anymore. If the spot mammo looked suspicious would I have been told right there that I needed further testing such as a biopsy or are the results sent to my doctor who decides? I'm thinking that if anything looked bad on the spot compression the radiologist would have told tech that I needed more tests that day? I'm very scared.

I would call the doctor's office for that answer. At the diagnostic center that I go to, I meet with the radiologist to review my films, and then a report is sent to the doctor, but I doubt if all centers work that way.

Hope all turns out okay for you. I had a suspicious area that, under compression views turned out to be nothing.

Call your doctor.
