Well, I turned 40 earlier this week and went in on Wednesday for a baseline mammogram. I got a call this morning saying the radiologist had found an "area of density" and would like me to come back in for another round of pictures and if needed, an ultrasound. When I went in, they did tell me that many first-timers would get calls to come back in for more pictures because there was nothing to compare any asymmetrical results to. So, I know I shouldn't be surprised. However, I just have this knee-jerk reaction to assume the worst. My maternal grandmother had breast cancer and both my Mom and Sister have had fibrocystic tumors (but no cancer.) I guess it should be more of a shock to me if they found nothing! I go back in a week and a half for round 2 and am considering asking my Mom to go with me. Has anyone else been down this road?
