Hi. I had my 1st ever mammogram on Saturday (I turned 40 recently). I found out yesterday that the mammogram is considered "incomplete" and they need more pics and possibly an ultrasound for my left breast. They said not to panic (I have an anxiety disorder so there's no chance that I'm not panicking). My f/u scan is tomorrow morning -- which is good that they gave me the 1st available even though I had 4-6weeks to reschedule.
Occasionally I have sensations in my breast, and sometimes a bit of a dull ache when I press on the muscle on my left side or my left upper back near my armpit. Sometimes the inside of my left bicep will twinge a bit, too. And then of course I keep checking it and rubbing it and that makes it hurt a bit. It only aches when I touch it, so it's not like I'm sitting around in pain. It's very hard to describe. No recent injury of any kind. I used to think it was just stress, but now I'm terrified. I have never had any lumps/not even an irregular pap smear. My mom died of endometrial/uterine cancer that spread. She was adopted so we have no other medical history available. 6 weeks ago I had a chest xray (I had the flu/checking for pneumonia) and the docs said that my chest xray was perfect. Had a regular doc appt last Friday and I mentioned the occasional sensations on left side and she said it was probably stress, esp as recent chest xray was clear. She also check my lymph nodes and said they weren't swollen.
Sometimes I wonder if it's my bra, sometimes I wonder if it's psychosomatic, sometimes I feel deep down that something is very very wrong. Any advice, insight, thoughts, anything would be appreciated. Thanks.
