First mammogram results have me nervous- should I be?
Had my first mammogram today. I am 40, and on HRT. I had a bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy in 2019 after I tested positive for the same BRCA mutation that my sister did. She passed in 2021 from stage 4 ovarian cancer.
I went in today for a lump that I had found a couple of months ago, and finally got brave to go for my first mammogram. the results talk about so many other things aside from the lump. Now I am waiting for the breast center to call back to schedule further testing.
“ Findings: Possible architectural distortion with associated focal asymmetry and calcifications in the upper outer anterior left breast on the implant displaced views. Calcifications in the far medial right breast, seen on the non implant displaced CC view and partially included on the implant displaced CC view. These are not seen on the MLO views probably due to location. Patient reports a lump in the medial aspect of the right breast. Further evaluation with diagnostic evaluation including ultrasound is necessary.”
Does any of the things listed sound familiar to anyone- should I be nervous? I am super anxious about all of it! Thanks in advance.
