View Full Version : OT - Update on mammogram

10-12-2010, 04:27 PM
I had to have a magnified mammogram today and afterwards, a doctor and nurse came in to tell me that there is an area on my right breast that "worries" him (him being the doctor) and I gotta have a biopsy :/

10-12-2010, 04:30 PM
Try not to worry about it too much. You are doing the right thing. I pray that all will go well for you.

10-12-2010, 04:31 PM
I am sorry to hear this but am glad that you are doing follow-up. Like bargoo said, try not to worry. I will be praying for you.

10-12-2010, 04:31 PM
Thank you :hug:

10-12-2010, 04:34 PM
They can't make any definitive diagnosis until they do the biopsy, so please don't worry too much. I know that is nearly impossible. I'm sorry you have to go through this :(.

10-12-2010, 04:36 PM
Prayers for comfort MEESH!

hang in there! I had a problem years ago, and the doc told me it's not unusually for woman to get masses (benign), the breasts are full of fibrous tissue and blood vessels. You can get cysts and polyps that are not cancerous. My situation turned out ok. So, all the best to you!!

10-12-2010, 08:15 PM
Sending positive thoughts for good news and an easy-breezy surgery tomorrow.

10-12-2010, 09:11 PM
Thanks!! :hug:

Thank you :hug:

10-12-2010, 10:26 PM
Oh, I'm very sorry you have this to contend with. Please know you have a million fans who will be thinking of you & sending all things positive your way. I hope you can take some comfort in that, but dang it, I know it's hard! These docs do like to be extra cautious, so try not to worry if you can.

10-12-2010, 11:05 PM
Thank you very much :hug:

10-12-2010, 11:46 PM
I know what you are going through, it's very scary. I had a lumpectomy five years ago, I was terrified throughout the entire process, the mammo, the biopsies, the ultrasound, the surgery. You know that they always have to check in the off chance that it might be something. I was fine but the entire process aged me. I will pray that you have no issues whatsoever, but if you do you can rest assured that they will have caught it very early, when the cure rate is so high. Hugs to you, please let us know how it goes.

10-12-2010, 11:49 PM
I will and thank you :hug:

10-13-2010, 01:14 AM
(((((((((hugs)))))))) it will be ok

10-13-2010, 01:32 AM
Hang in there. You are doing the right thing.

Thanks :hug::hug:

10-13-2010, 08:14 AM
Prayers going your way!!! My mom has had 4 biopsys and all have been benign Thank GodI hope everything goes well today as well, I will be thinking of you today! Good Luck!

Did they do the biopsy already?

10-14-2010, 08:26 PM
Will continue to send you healing thoughts. Sounds like you have a great doctor who is promptly following up to provide you the best treatment.

10-14-2010, 11:02 PM
Hoping the biopsy went okay. Hugs.

10-14-2010, 11:27 PM
80% of these suckers are B9.

And, of that 20% that are positive, 80% live normal lives and it never comes back.

Honest. I'm 2.5 years out myself.

So sorry you have to do this - it sucks, and it is SO scary.


10-15-2010, 04:12 PM
Did they do the biopsy already?

I have the biopsy this Tuesday. I had surgery to have a very large lipoma removed from my back on Wednesday.

10-15-2010, 04:13 PM
Thanks everyone for the support :hug:

10-15-2010, 07:48 PM
You're in my thoughts and especially so on Tuesday.
Hang in there.
Hope you are recuperating from the surgery.

10-15-2010, 08:23 PM
Sending out prayers and blessing and hugs. :carrot::hug:

Are you having a needle biopsy or a surgical biopsy ?

10-15-2010, 08:53 PM
Onederchic - I am so sorry you have to face these health challenges. I am wishing you the best results possible. Hugs and prayers to you,

10-15-2010, 09:10 PM
Thanks :hug:

10-15-2010, 09:10 PM
Are you having a needle biopsy or a surgical biopsy ?

I believe it is a needle biopsy. I had a lumpectomy back in 1996 or 1997, same breast, and it was benign so fingers crossed that this is too.

10-15-2010, 09:54 PM
I believe it is a needle biopsy. I had a lumpectomy back in 1996 or 1997, same breast, and it was benign so fingers crossed that this is too.

I will be praying that it will be found to be benign. It seems that you have had an awful lot on your plate lately.
Maybe you will have the experience my cousin had. She had an exray that showed a spot on her lung. She was so scared thst she flew fom her home in Iowa to her parents home in Minnesota to tell them goodbye. When she returned home she had a call from her doctor's office, they had given her someone else's results ! She was relieved but she quit smoking immediately ! Of course it wasn't such good news for the other lady.

10-15-2010, 10:07 PM
Thank you very much, that means a lot to me.

The doctor said he wouldn't be very worried about what he seen on my right breast if I had the same on my left and if not for my family history (my momma and one of my sisters have battled breast cancer). So he said for those reasons, the "cluster" (his word, not mine) he seen on my right breast "worries" him (again, his word).

I am trying to remain positive, I am not sitting believe I have cancer. I just want it all to be over with. The surgery to remove that huge lipoma and now this, jeez, I am tired :/

10-15-2010, 10:13 PM
Thinking of you! Take care of yourself, pamper yourself a little and rest!

10-15-2010, 10:21 PM
Thanks Donna :) :hug:
