Oh No Associated with Invasive (Infiltrating) Ductal Carcinoma . Posted on September 7, 2012 View this journey (6 Experiences)

I have always gone for mammograms every year. I felt a something not really a lump and it would come and go, I thought it was period related. When I went in for my yearly exam I did not tell my doctor. She did the breast exam and said have you felt anything and I said yes and told her the story. She said it did not feel like a lump but a thickening, and thought it was nothing to worry about but wanted a mamm and an ultra sound. Well my mamm showed nothing and the ultra sound only found it because they could feel something. My MRI did not even show how big it was. Before surgery my doc thought it was maybe 5cm but when they got in ther it was 6.8cm which is almost 3 in. So my story is don't trust a mamm do self exams.
