I have been reading some posts in this forum and seems like there are some nice people which made me want to post.
I am a 39 year old female who has had mammograms every year since the age of 22. My Mother is a breast cancer survivor of about 20 plus years. The same with my Grandma, I have an Aunt who lost the battle.
As for myself, I have had a couple of needle biopsies and two lumps removed over the years.
I hate going for the annual mammos because I know I will ALWAYS get called back. LAst year for the first time the mammo came back clear and no worries. I just went again for the annual mammo last Tuesday. Radiology called yesterday and wants me to come back tomorrow for additional mammo views, plus a ultra sound. First, I have never been called back so soon and second I have never had to do both on the same day. I'm in panic mode. I asked the lady that called what the issue is and she just said "I'm just the scheduler," I called my Doctor's office and they said the Doctor is on vacation just go and do what radiology is asking of me. UGh! I'm frustrated because I know what is going to happen tomorrow, I'll ask the tech what do you see and she will say, "I'm just the tech." Ugh! CAn someone talk to me? I'm freaking out and because of my family history, I am going to keep this a secret for now. What do you guys think about the additional mammo views and ultra sound on the same day? Usually they wait to see what the additional views show before the ultrasound, no?
