    Just Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Had screening mammograms, had nml one 14 mos ago, called back for more views 2 days later. I was told that I had calcifications and I needed a biopsy which I had 4 days later. Then I had to wait for 5 days to get the results.

    Procedure or Surgery

    The only unexpected finding during surgery was the clip had been placed so close to the nipple. The surgeon had to shave the underside of my nipple to obtain a another specimen which fortunately was negative
