10% of women who get b/c have a family history of it. In my case, no one had EVER had cancer. No one knows what causes this disease and it could very well have more than just one cause since there is more than just one type of b/c.
Microcalifications can be seen in many mammograms but it is the clustering that alert
s drs. You really should have biopsies done on both breasts. I can certainly tell you this, if the calicifications are (pre)cancerous, you have caught it very quickly. When I had my second mastectomy, it was because I had micros that were caught in that stage.
Hang out here, though. We're here for anything from venting to sending our PCE to be with you (spiritually) at any time we're needed. Our members have seen just about
everything and, I think, they are sometimes better than a dr.
Do remember to either take someone with you and bring a voice recorder to drs appointments. I think we all could never remember everything we were told.
When we they do the biopsy? We'll send the PCE for support. Just watch out for the pink feathers we usually leave behind. I'll put our pilot, Joyce, on alert
