My mammogram did not turn out good

I did not get the results that I had hoped for today.  They found a spot in my breast.  They think it is a cyst.  I have an appointment scheduled for monday with the surgeon to discuss everything.  I also have an appointment with my oncologist scheduled for the 24th.  I am so scared that the cancer has come back.


Thanks to all that rode with me today.

I am sorry that you have to go through all this again.  Especially as you have your daughter's health issue to be concerned over too.

I don't know what they do with cyst in a breast, perhaps someone else will answer that question.

Sometimes a lumpectomy leaves a few cells behind.  However it would still be considered local than metastatic.  Still do overs are never fun.

I do hope that it turns out to be a cyst.

Wishing you the best,

Scary. Crossed fingers and everything else that this is nothing more than a cyst. So sorry this is happening.

Who wouldn't and I am very sorry that this is happening. But don't forget that it still can only be a cyst.

Hugs and fingers crossed for you, Carmen

I also have been called back for a repeat Mammogram.  I am not scheduled until February 18, 2014.  It is amazing how nervous I feel.  I wasn't told what was on my initial Mammogram, but I wondered why the technician took more pictures of my left breast than my right.  I am hoping for both of us that everything will be good!
