Hello, I am also a new member and have recently had a needle biopsy on one breast and a surgical biopsy on the other (could not see area on second breast to also do needle) for several areas of microcalcifications on both breasts. Both biopsies came back negative, however I was told by my surgeon that I will now have to have mammograms every 6 months and see her because of the many areas of microcalcifations. My surgeon, although good, is very abrupt and brief, so I never feel I am getting an answer that is clear to me. When I askeed her exactly why and what they are looking for, her answer was"we are looking for everything". These biopsies were not easy as I had to be mamogrammed during each, on the surgical to place a wire marker, and on the needle I was biopsies during the procedures. My fear is they will also be repeating biopsies in 6 months, and all the doses of radiation, stress etc.
So glad I found this forum, as I am finding it difficult to get any information.
