Calcification biopsy 6yrs after bc


Re: Calcification biopsy 6yrs after bc

Hi lolly73.


when I was recalled after my first screening I asked the lady doing the mammogram if I could see it and what she was looking for. She showed me the calcification and I was amazed anyone had noticed it on my first one. She said it can be nothing but it can also indicator of something else. I also had a small lump.


I didn't give the calcification a second thought as the lump was cancer,  however I was looking over my pathology report the other day and it turns out the calcification was malignant as well.


there is a leaflet on here about calcification which explains it all and with your history they probably just want to check it out.


I won't tell you not to worry, that's impossible,  but he has said he's not concerned,  and it is a good thing that they are being thorough. 


Take care

Calcification biopsy 6yrs after bc

In 2008 age 34, I had grade 3 bc. Had wle, snb, rads, zoladex, tamoxifen, oopherectomy, exemestane.

This years mammo shows calcification very close to my scar that was not there last year. Consultant thinks it's benign but I've had a biopsy done to be sure.

Now once again playing the awful waiting game.

Anyone else had similar?
