I went for my first mamogramm last Thursday. I was called to go back today for a more extensive view. They had detected a spot in my right breast. When I entered the room I saw the images of my breast on the screen and I immediately saw the spot in question. It was a large (egg shaped) white spot at the back of my breast near the muscle. After the second set of imaging, I was told that I was going to have an ultra sound. After the ultra sound, the radiologist came into the room and stated that he believed it was a lymph node, and that I would have to go back in 6 months for another mamogramm. He said they would be sending the results/images to my doctor. When I originally was brought back into the room to change into my gown, I asked the woman if I needed to wipe down both of my breasts as I had done with my original mammogram. She replied no that they were only imaging my right breast. I thought my knees were going to buckle beneath me because I had been complaining that my right breast had been bothering me for some time. I am very anxious about speaking to my doctor on Monday. It just so happens that I have an appointment already scheduled with him as he wants to check a cyst that was detected on my uterus 5 years ago while I was pregnant with my youngest child. I am concerned about my breast as I have a history of breast cancer in my family- my maternal aunt, my maternal great grandmother and a paternal first cousin. I would really like to hear from anyone who may have had this same experience. I continue to tell myself to keep calm and wait until Monday as there is nothing you can do right now anyway; but all I continue to imagine are my three babies (ages 10, 8 and 5). I'm a single mother, recently divorced. I've had a very hard road for the past five or more years and the thought of being sick right now is unfathomable. I know I'm probably over reacting, but when it's something like this I don't know how you can't over react.
