called back for breast compression test and got other bad news

I feel absolutly torn about writing about myself when others are going thru much serious matters but I just need someone to talk to. I had a mamogram last week and was told today by my doctor that i need a compresion mamogram as there is increased breast density and to make matters worst my pap came back abnormal so an aditional test needs to be done and it takes a week to come back! I am usualy very positive but I just can't shake this bad feeling. I can't talk to my husband about what I'm going thru because he is a hipocondriac and will just freak me out even more. I am really scared and have no one to talk. I try to keep my mind on other matters until i get my compresion on thrusday and just wait for the aditional results on the pap. But i have to be honest I am so scared right now I can't take this off my mind.

That certainly can't be easy. They do call back often, I know that probably does nothing to calm your fears, but I have had it more than once, and thankfully it hasn't been a concern.

I am glad you are having your compression on Thursday, it leaves less time to dwell, which is normal to do..

Feel free to chat here. Sometimes it is much easier than worrying those in our inner circles.

Please also keep us updated.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I know the waiting is hard and your mind doesn't stop. But try to stay positive and pray. I recently went thru tests and waiting and surgery and more waiting. I really believe in staying positive and I will pray for you.

The vast majority of abnormal screening mammograms are abnormal for benign reasons (cysts, benign solid masses, fibrocystic change). You may also need an ultrasound of the breast if the density persists on diagnostic imaging. The ultrasound will help determine whether the abnormality is a cyst or solid. If a biopsy is recommended, results are benign 80% of the time. The odds are very much on the side of this being a benign finding. As I tell all my patients, try to stay positive about the situation until you are told otherwise. Good luck and I hope you can get a quick resolution to the problem.

I think that is totally normal. It always seems that when it rains it pours.

Try to relax, and think good positive thoughts.. ( I know it seems easy for me to say), but it is the best thing possible...

thank you! got thru the breast compression (not fun at all ) the results were not clear enough so now I have to get an MRI. I have been scared for weeks and see this not ending soon so I have decided to just take whatever happens and stop making myself nuts over this. no clear mass or tumor has been found so the way I look at is that if something IS found it has to be small so it will be early enough for treatment. I have to wait a while for the MRI and pap test results so I will go on our thanksgiving trip to visit DS, try to have lots of fun and come back home to resume all this again.

Good thinking Mamita.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday, and enjoy your visit with your DS..

Always in my thoughts and prayers.

I have an apointment with my doctor tomorow but it says something about a cyst oval shaped about 3mm and my other breast shows a nodule about 11 mm sugesting something about linfatic intermamary gland. I'm trying to translate these results as best as I can as I live in a spanish living country and oviously I'm not a doctor. I don't know what to think. It says nothing of a tumor but bi rads are 3 witch means unconclusive still. when will this end!! I have been so scared out of my mind and see no end to this still! I have gained about five pounds..
