I called to confirm my appointments,they said they wanted blood work because Im over 50 and they are going to do a contrast mammogram and an ultra sound...she said that the radiologist didnt know exactly what he was seeing with the first 2 and wants to take a better look.....

Sounds good. Ultrasound can really get a good look when a mammo can't. Let us know how it goes.

So I had my contrast mammogram..they told me what they are looking for are hotspots and cellular changes..the first minute of the contrast gave me a hot throat and my behind felt hot..they said it would feel like I was peeing myself which it did..then I had an ultra sound which they said was to have a good look because sometimes the tissue is folded over and they cant see..it was kind of uncomfortable..so now I wait again ..this will be a long stressful wait....
