Just had a mammogram Monday and got "the call" this morning that they need to have me back for additional views. I'm going already tomorrow but I'm really freaking out. I had this happen a couple of times before and it is so anxiety producing. I just lost my husband to cancer 6 weeks ago & the stress I'm under is incredible. I'm sick to my stomach right now and can't function. I thought this digital mammography was better at not having people come back for 2nd rounds. I saw a thread on here about others having this and I know they were very scared too. Any one know about dense breasts and repeat mammogram?

I have what they call heterogeneously dense breasts and always have to go back- always!! Even with digital Mammos. Heck they did a call back with an MRI with contrast.

It's scary as heck on its own, but having so recent a loss I cannot imagine what you are feeling.

I will tell you this, most times....most...it's calcium deposits....also called PASH...or Fibroid growths...

If you are unsure make them do a biopsy because that is what I was told to do.

Good luck!!

hi, i have very dense breast tissue, i have had my right breast mastectomy and the left breast had a lumpectomy, i have triple negative ,her2 .once each year. 2013 and 2014, now i have under arm swelling called lympodema,for a year now, i am feeling a sore area under the arm ,i am going to have it looked at as soon as i can. i am scared .i was the one who found the lumps even after the mammograms,i told them something was there so i waited longer for them to check again ,it gave the cancer time to grow larger. that's what happens with the triple negative cancer. i hope your repeat mammogram comes out negative.
i am so sorry about losing your husband to cancer,i believe in prayer!, i'll keep you in my heart for prayer, that is the only way we can survive this . p.s. i am also a new member here. lily
