This happened to my mom about 7-8 years ago. I wouldn’t worry just yet; they often will call you back if anything out of the ordinary pops up. For my mom it was just a small cyst that has since disappeared on its own. I would think that given your family’s history they are being extra cautious. Sending positive thoughts your way.

I have been called back after 2 mammograms and nothing was found. 1 in 20 women are recalled and 90% of those are cleared after further testing. Some women have denser breast tissue. Other reasons are cysts, calcification, scarring.

It is normal to worry and have anxiety.

summerrain123 :  I have been called back every year since I first got sent for one, except this year. They always end up doing an ultrasound and one year I had to have a biopsy but it was fine. 

Im sorry you lost your mom to bc, I’m sure that makes this even harder, but Julies pointed out the stats so keep focused on that if you can.

summerrain123 :  Sending good thoughts your way.  I had a call back years ago and I remember the sheer terror.  It was simply because there was a change, thankfully nothing of concern.  I hope you have good news also.  Very sorry to hear about your mom.  

Big hugs to you and please post an update.
