mammogram results

Got the results back from the mammogram I had on Tuesday.

Hi Marilyn,
Finally got your results- The left palpable lump that you noticed was the same cyst that you had previously had an ultrasound for. The right breast had a mass that may be new or may have grown from previous mammograms. The radiologist wants to do more mammogram views and an ultrasound on the right breast to see if it is also a cyst. I think you are going to be seen in the breast clinic on 9/12 with Dr Sakamoto and they usually have same day appointments for the ultrasound and extra mammogram views that they wanted. I will get your results but Dr Sakamoto may be the one contacting you about the results. 
Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

I have another mammogram scheduled for Tuesday, the 10th and they cancelled the apt. for the 12th because that was just a follow up with a different doctor.  Hopefully I will learn what I need to know on Tuesday and they will say that both masses are just cysts and I can get on with life as normal.  I think I will make myself a quilt.  I've never kept a quilt for myself out of the 1,000 quilts I've made.  Maybe it is time to make one.

It's no fun waiting for results and follow-up appointments. I hope they are just cysts...positive vibes coming your way. :O)

Keep positive!! Perhaps, yes, it's time to make something for yourself! Like you, I don't keep what I make.

How frustrating to have it go on so long without results to put your mind at ease. I agree - a quilt is the answer! Sending positive thoughts for a good result.

Praying for you. This was the first year I have ever had to do a repeat and with my mom having had breast cancer, I was sick!
When I got there, I was nervous but they did the test and the radiologist came out and he was young and said something that made me laugh so hard, I almost wet myself...'Well, I don't see it, so I guess we squished it out of you.'
Sending positive thoughts!

Prayers for good reports on the 12th. I've had to do the ultra sound follow ups and nothing was found...that sounds like a good result to repeat for you!! You should absolutely make yourself a quilt!!!
