I guess it’s not a good thing when your mammogram doesn’t hurt. I’m not really sure but it’s my gut instinct right now. Why would I think that? Well, it’s because of a letter and a phone call from my doctor.
First the letter arrives. Of course I didn’t get the mail until after 5 PM so I had to wait to speak to my doctor about it. But when I saw the yellow highlighter on the page I immediately knew something was wrong. The note said that there was something “suspicious” on my test and that I needed to get in touch with my doctor. It went on to say that this didn’t mean that I had a tumor but that my doctor would decide if further testing was needed.
I called the next day at 8 AM and was told that I’d get a return call right away. I was then told that one of my breasts was “dense” and that I needed an ultrasound and a spot compression mammogram. I was told not to worry. It was a change from last year and it does happen with age.
I’m amazed that I’m this calm about it. I go for my tests on Wednesday, March 25th. I’ll keep you posted.
