Hi,
Concerning your mom,I have pasted 2 links where you'll find important information concerning the tingling in your mother's hand,and her taste changing.

1)    http://www.chemocare.com/managing/numbness__tingling.asp

2)    http://www.chemocare.com/managing/taste_changes.asp

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...
