I really didn't know where to post this but I wanted to talk (write) it out just to get it off my chest...
I went for a mammogram yesterday. I have been going for a couple years now even though I'm only 38 because my aunt had breast cancer. Thank God she kicked its butt :)
Well, they had to take about 20 films of my left breast... the lady came back in and out of the room like 4 times to talk to the dr and do more films. I was having nervous breakdown practically and by the last films I had everything in me to not bust out crying.
Finally, she comes back in with the dr. Im like SHIT if the dr comes in this cant be good lol.
He tells me that I have white spots on my left breast. Calcifications... they are normally just "normal". They actually were on my last films. They wondered if they were on the skin but after doing all the films he decided they are on the breast.
They are round and not weird shaped which is good.... so normaly means they are benign. He says that he doesn't see any reason to do a biopsy right now but he wants me to come back again in 6 months.
Im scared shitless now. I had melonoma when I was 26... they removed with surgery but of course this just scares me.
