Hi everyone..Not sure if this the right site....But I will try....Two part question..Mom finished chemo in april..Now middle of May and her hands are still tingling and food still dont taste right.....Does it ever get better or improve??
Next question...had first mammo and sono..mammo normal sono came back with three hypoechoic nodules appearing benign....six month ultrasound recommended...is there reason for concern???
Concerning you,a recall in six months is usually recommended if the radiologist deems that the hypoechoic nodules appear benign (No cancer).However these nodules have to be monitored at a scheduled time to see if there are any changes concerning their shape and growth.
I wouldn't worry if I were you,but if you are overly concerned and stressed for waiting six months because of family history,you could have your films read by another radiologist to get a second opinion and you could also ask for a biopsy to make absolutely certain that these nodules are benign in nature.
Best wishes and good luck to both you and your mom...
