Hi, after going for a mamogram today i have been told i have to go back for a biopsy as i have a cluster of calcifications. I am a absolute wreck.... Cant eat or think about anything else... I have a 6 and 10yr old and i cant help but thinking the worse. Just cant think rationally. Has anyone been through this? Xxx

I haven't been through this, but have just been put on the 2 week wait for breast lump and indentation, despite having a clear mammogram screen 6 months ago. I really sympathise with you as I am also a wreck at the moment, single parent to a child with a disability and no family to support. I can't stop crying , sick with worry. I hope it all turns out okay for you xx

Hi, thanks for your reply..... I do sympathise for you having no one there for you... Its the waiting
That sends your mind into overdrive... On the plus point for you your mamogram was clear 6 months ago, so hopefully it will be a down to hormonal issues. If you ever need to chat please message me anytime... Im lying awake at 3.10am on Google worried sick, cant cope with wating 2 to 3 weeks for my biopsy 😭. Big hugs to you xxx

Oh goodness.flowers to you both.

No experience other than having heard that a tiny proportion are ever anything to worry about. I hope that might help ease your mind a bit? The vast majority of referrals are fine. Hope this is so for you both, and good you have each other.

There is a thread for the tww (twoweekwait) for follow up, that might be helpful too?

I’ve had a breast biopsy. It didn’t hurt but the whole thing made me feel terribly vulnerable. It’s most likely nothing and they’re just being cautious! flowers

Try not to worry too much OP.

I went recently after being referred by GP for a mammogram as I had unusual pain on the left side. Had a mammogram but they found something they wanted to investigate further on the right side, so that was completely unexpected. I then had a scan and a biopsy and had to go back a week later for the results. It was a fibroadenoma, so fortunately nothing sinister. I completely understand your anxiety as the wait is hard, but try to remember 80% of lumps are not cancer. I really hope everything is ok for you.
