      You can find those people by click on the people tab and then selecting breast cancer and entering your zip code in the left hand panel.

      not from jersey but I was reading some of your experiences and I was wondering how your doing now. my mom has cancer for a third time, she had uterine and breast cancer. she is starting radiation monday. I get that your scared, every female over 50 on my moms side of the family has or had breast or uterine cancer. I am 48 and worried I too will get it. thanks for sharing your story and I hope your doing well.

    My friend had a cluster of calcifications and had to have a biopsy. While she was there they needed more pictures and a ultrasound. Pretty strange the ultrasound found things that the mammo did not show! Doctor that did the biopsy said there are two more areas of calcifications that should be biopsied which she knew, they were there the guy who did the mammo told her we will watch them and the doctor who did biopsy said she thinks they should be biopsied. But the doctor that did ultrasound saw two lumps that the mammo did not show! Why do doctors not do both if ultrasound shows more than mammograms!!! She is so confused now and really worried now!

    I was told that it goes by biopsy before surgery. My doctor told me it was so small they must have pulled out all the positive.
