Recalled for further tests

Hi all, I’m 42 and have been recalled after my annual mammogram, I’ve had mammograms now for 15yrs due to family history, my recent one has showed up calcifications so I’m awaiting an appointment for further mammograms ultra sound and possibly biopsy, is there anyone else who has experienced this, I could really do with some reassurance or advice before I go stir crazy, thanks in advance guys x

Hi Kerry,


For reassurance keep remembering that what ever the outcome everything is being checked very very early due to your annual mammograms.


IF it is bad news it will be of the very best type of bad news.

But that is not now. Now, you probably have an enormous amount of worry and waiting going on which we all know to be the worst aspect of it all.


Best wishes for your results and try to keep busy till then.
