Hi everyone...haven't posted in awhile...I have an appt for a right diagnostic mammo and an appt w/ my breast surgeon immediately after, in early April. In my previous posts I was torn about what to do about my "probably a lymph node but we don't know for sure", since the opinions I got told me to wait 6 months. Well, after my appt next month I am going to request a biopsy even if there is no change in the lump. The surgeon originally told me we could do a stereotactic guided by mammo. I just don't want to "wait around" anymore. I've had enough!! Has anyone had a stereotactic?? Thanks much,

Yes, I had a stereotactic biopsy in 2000, Jen. Not too bad, but everyone's experience is different. Good for you for following up on this. You need some solid answers and a biopsy is the only way to get them. Let us know what you find out. Keeping fingers crossed for benign results. Eight of 10 breast lumps are not cancer. Let's hope that's you case. Lauri
