Hi I am new to this, just been recalled for second stage screening…Had another mammogramme, ultrasound and a needle biopsy…Dr said I have a shadow on my R breast,but he said it does not look suss??? However he asked me if I have noticed any changes…I said that I had noticed a small circle of dry itchy patch, was there a while very itchy…It went away, however a smaller 1 appeared. Really worried, and have a week of so to wait for results!!!

HI Janlou09,
The waiting is the worst part. The good news is that the doc doesn’t think it is too suss. They will want to know if you have had any other symptoms that would lead them to think it was something to worry about. Hopefully it will turn out to be nothing to worry about, but it good that the doctors are making sure.
Fingers crossed for you.
