Looking for advice or experience. I’m 52 and had my first routine breast screening 3 weeks ago. I hadn’t received results so called today. Turns out I’m being recalled as they have seen something that needs further investigation. I had a screen in March 2017 and it was clear. This was because of anxiety at the time around my lumpy boobs.
I’m worried as because of the Christmas period, I can’t get an appt till 9th January. TIS

When I went for my first mammogram at 50 I was told loads of people get recalled after the first one because they have nothing to compare it with so any abnormalities need rechecking . The likelihood is it’s absolutely nothing to worry about .

Thanks Flora. They will be able to compare to my 2017 screen I think

I got a recall last time, and within the same month so did my sister and my daughter's MIL. Mine was a cyst, painlessly drained on the day, my sister's was nothing at all and DDs MIL had very early signs of breast cancer which was quickly treated. I know it's terrible waiting but please bear in mind it's more likely to be nothing to worry about.

Thanks NBW. Glad it all worked out for you and your family.
I’ve waited 3 weeks on results and due to the festive season I’ve got to wait 3 weeks on a follow up appt.
