BIRADS 3 mammogram - breast calcifications
« on: August 19, 2013, 09:33:20 PM »
I went for my baseline mammogram last March at age 35. After a call back - another mammo and ultrasound (i.e. 2 hours of complete terror), the radiologist said I have several calcifications in my left breast that look benign. However, she wants me to follow up in 6 months because she has no previous films to compare this to. It was categorized as BIRADS 3, meaning "probably benign". Well, 6 months have passed and my follow up mammo is scheduled for Sept. 2. Of course I am worried about it already, thinking that this one will show that it got worse and I will need a biopsy. Has anyone else had a situation like this where they had to follow up in 6 months? What was the outcome?

Yup!

Phlebolith Calcification Left Pelvis....

I think you have a good plan! You should relax! Being stressed will make things worse....

If they looked benign chances are it's not the c word.... Cancer is usually, "yeah c word, bill.... I'll tell Dr. bob."

They usually only treat cancer when they know what it is and when the've watched it progress... Wait & watch.

I hope you get some peace of mind! Rest up! Stress takes a lot out of us!

Hugs!

Um, I'm 35 too. I didn't think we needed to start mammos quite yet?
