Good luck, Nicollette - my mom had microcalcs, too. The doctors finally got super aggressive and biopsied her TWICE, but they never turned up anything.  I'm hoping they also do a follow-up ultrasound on you?  It is easier for them to spot things in dense tissue with thermal u/s.

I can't wait until our hospital finally gets one of those 3D breast ultrasound machines!  (Yep... these are the things people with HA get excited about.)

So my "good result high" wore off this morning.  Even though the imaging showed no signs of bc, the breast pain is still there. I have my annual obgyn appointment in 2 weeks. I haven't seen him before as I'm switching practices, but I'm optimistic that he'll have some advice.

Would a mammo/ultrasound show infection in a duct or a clogged milk duct?  Kind of wondering if that might be the case but have no clue since I weaned 9 months ago (but can still hand express a small amount of milk).

Anyway, I'm working hard to keep in mind that between a 3d mammo and ultrasound, they would've seen something sinister if it were there, and that this pain is NOT sinister so I can wait 2 weeks to see the obgyn.

Did they find any cysts on the u/s?  Those are the biggest causes of my breast pain. But sometimes women just have painful breasts.

They've ruled out any sinister causes, but your doc will probably look into any other possible causes. You can also try evening primrose oil capsules. When my breasts were at their worst, I used those and they totally stopped the pain. After a while, something changed - either my hormones calmed down or my diet improved and I didn't need them anymore.

No mention of cysts so not sure if I have them or not. Doctor was a radiologist not a breast specialist so I'm hoping for some more answers from the Gyno. Trying to keep faith that nothing was missed on the imaging :(

I'm sure nothing was missed in the imaging - they're very careful in the diagnostic mammos because you're there for a reason. Definitely ask the gyno if there were cysts mentioned in the report. But if not, sometimes breast pain just happens.
