In the worlds of Arnold: It's not a tumor.

Looks like I have the all clear. The surgeon checked me today and said we had a false alarm on the abnormal results: that it was, indeed, just dilated milk ducts - which are NOTHING to worry about!!

He said my instinct on the breast infection appears to be on target per my description of the pain and the fact that the pain is subsiding as I'm finishing up my course of antibiotics.

He told me to return in a YEAR for another mammogram and check to follow the fibroadenoma that is there.

Praise the Lord and pass the gravy! WOO HOO!

    I saw the word fibroadenoma..
    I have had 4 removed. 2 on each breast. I was told that when I go through menopause, that I will stop producing them. I have been having mammo's since I was mid 20's...This was the first year, I had a clean film. I thought for sure they read it wrong because I have NEVER had a clear mammo..

    Congrats on your good news..I guess mine was good too so I will have gravy with you!

    Good for you on a good mammogram! It is a relief, but you still can't help but wonder if you missed something!!!

    I read somewhere about them getting less as you go through menopause. I guess that is one good thing about the change!

    Such good news for you! I'll uncross my fingers now. It was getting kinda hard to type with 'em like that.

    You have reminded me, along with the card the CNP keeps sending (hot pink in color) that my mammogram is overdue.
    Sigh. I'll call and make the appointment tomorrow.

    Excellent news! That must be such a huge weight off your shoulders.

    (When you've finished your antibiotics, you should start taking an acidophilus complex immediately. Otherwise all sorts of bad things start happening in your gut which can cause myriad other health problems! I know this because it's happened to me.)
