Hi I am new to this site, I had my mammogram recall last Tuesday 18th Dec

First I had to have what was explained as magnified mammograms so they could get a better picture of the problem area.

Then I saw a Doctor who examined me and used the ultra sound to see if she could find it but she was unable to.

So then I had to have a series of six biopsies taken. By this time we had been at the hospital 3 and a half hours, so with just the breast nurse to see to make my appointment for the results and any questions I had, have to admit that by now I was feeling knackered and very sore so was wanting to get home for a cuppa! but I did remember her calling it a calcification.

I would love to hear from any of you ladies that have been through this to try and give me a little reassurance before I go for my results which because of Christmas being in the middle are not until the 31st December.                                                             Many Thanks

Hi peggy

i was diagnosed last February, my mammogram showed calcifications in both breasts and underwent vacuum biopsies. It was put to me by the radiographer that he thought they looked normal but the other Dr thought they may be DCIS – told this would be worse case scenario. The results came back with DCIS and underwent surgery to remove and about to start radiotherapy.

DCIS carry 100% survival rate so if one is unfortunate to get breast cancer this is the one to have. 

I’m not saying this is what you have, only biopsy can confirm that. Hopefully the results on the 31st will return negative, until then try not to worry too much.
