I've presented with calcifications of the right breast for at least eight years. Each time I have a mammogram, I'm sent back for a sonogram. This time I'm being sent back for another series of more exact mammograms, and I'm scared at this change of protocol. What's up?
Also, when do doctors reach a final conclusion that a certain set of calcifications are benign, or do they want reassurance each time they show up on a mammo?
Finally, how worried should I be? I'm nearly in a panic since I've had so much lousy news lately (my husband just underwent surgery this morning, and I'm also exhausted).
Thanks for any help/advice/experience you can share or give.
