I had a 6 month follow-up mammogram last week since the prior mammo showed what they thought was scar tissue from a prior biopsy (which was a fibroid). The new mammo shows a "well circumscribed bilobed lesion measuring 9x10x9 mm", and not anywhere near the marker from the biopsy. The radiologist called me in for an ultrasound which didn't show anything. So I asked the tech if perhaps the mammo reflected an artifact. The answer--no. The prior benign lesion showed up on ultrasound. I have an appointment with a breast specialist because right after my mammo, my husband's urologist from renal carcinoma told me to see one rather than just rely on a gyno; however while I am on the wait list for an earlier appointment, my appointment is almost 2 weeks away.
So what gives? Should I regard it as a good thing that it didn't show up on an ultrasound? Getting worried....
