I am new here and freaking out. My mammogram last week was abnormal and the radiologist gave it a 5 and stated I needed an urgent biopsy. I am scheduled in for July 7th.
I am 54 and the last time I had a mammogram was 10 years ago so they didn't have the pictures to compare but they did have the report. I had to go pick up the new pictures and both reports and I am very confused. My earlier report said I had extensive microcalcifications throughout both breasts, they were dense and there were many cysts and they gave me a 2. This mammogram showed microcalcifications but there is no lump or mass. I just don't know how I got a 5 when it could be no different them my previous one. I had one done last week because I have swelling and pain in my left breast.
I guess what I want to know is if anyone else has had a misdiagnosis from a radiologist or if you have been diagnosed with cancer from microcalcifications. I am 54, in good physical shape and weight and I have a very large extended female family and nobody has had any cancer at all.
