Hi Mark! I have a mammo. every 12 mos. Nothing was seen 1 year ago then the next one showed microcalcifications(3) very small specs. Couldn't feel anything. Had lumpectomy then had mastectomy because the cancer was more widly spread than the mammo showed. Mine was concidered early detection,stage 0,noninvasive DCIS. I had mastectomy and reconstruction. No need for chemo or radiation. I'm taking Tamoxifin for 5 years. Good luck to your mom. I'll be praying for her. Cathy
