Mammogram came back abnormal

Once an ultrasound is done how long is the wait for results?
Days - 0.0%
Week - 0.0%

Hi Everyone,

I am new to this forum and I guess I'm not the only one feeling sick to my stomach. I had a mammogram done 1 week ago and got the call. I am 41 yrs old and it hasn't been easy these couple of days. I can't sleep & I haven't been eating much. I can't stop to think that I can be one of the unlucky ones. Today, I got a call from the nurse & told me that I have a 9 mm mass on my left breast & will be getting a call for an ultrasound within 2 days. Why are we wasting time? I need this taken care of stat! I'm thinking the more I wait the more it's spreading. I got my triplets to take care of & cannot imagine not being around. I am a wreck everyone is telling me it's nothing but easier said than done. Now, any pain I feel is on my left breast even my mind is playing tricks on me. Ugh! This sucks & now it's the waiting game.

If there is a mass can I request to be removed? I just don't understand why go through this torture every time a routine mammogram is performed. Can this be done?

If it looks like something the next step after ultrasound will probably be a needle biopsy. I had one done at 40 and my "mass" ended up being a fibrous adenoma which isn't something to worry about. Try not to panic until you know what your dealing with. Easier said than done.
