So I have been thru the the mental stress ringer it seems since april 1. I finally had a biopsy last friday now i have to wait until tuesday to get results.. I am sending you results of mamo/ultrasounds etc.. When I had the biopsy (core_) the dr. said the nodule was very suspicious.. great. but I have been reading alot on calcifications .. I had a large mass removed 88" and i barely remember it any way.. he said it was microcalcif. pre cancer.. I am 56.. and would appreciate any feed back on this.. report?? please and thank you in advance dr. didnt even adress any of the calcifications only the nodule I figure worse senario is take it out and radiation.. and I am good to go..
