good news and questionable news

Hi ladies,
I went for my seven month check-up and results came back my pap was normal I was scheduled for a mammogram at that time and results just came back not so good. They found a spot I have to retest in six months My DD says not to worry. oh-well I guess that part of life.

Have a very Merry Christmas

Hi Albie,
So happy to hear your checkup was good and your pap is fine. Great news.
Hmmm as for the spot from the mamogram results, if they are not testing again for 6 months, they must be pretty sure its nothing to worry about! You can always ask for a second opinion if you want as well I would think.

So glad everything is looking good!!
Have a great christmas Albie!!

6 months, huh. They must feel pretty confident that it's benign. Of course the majority of all the blips they pick up with a mammogram are. You might want to keep up with your self-exams in the meantime for piece of mind, but it's almost certainly nothing to worry about.

Oh, drink green tea! That lowers the risk of BC and you'll feel like your'e doing something while waiting out the 6 months. Plenty of water too, they say, helps lower the risk. Can't hurt!

Hi Albie!

Great news on the pap!!! Just what we love to hear around here!!!

I'm sorry you didn't have more reassuring news on the mammogram, but hopefully all will be okay on the follow up testing. They must indeed not be too worried but I think keeping up on your self exams as Trish mentioned in the meantime is an excellent idea or if you're going to do alot of worrying, think about another opinion as Maria mentioned, also an excellent idea.

Now Trish, I didn't know green tea would help decrease your risk on BC? Interesting, I'll have to pass that along, thanks.

Albie, I hope you'll have a wonderful holiday! Celebrate your wonderful news!

Congrats on the pap results!! Definately reason to celebrate!
As for the mammogram, considering that they are waiting 6 mos, they must feel confident that it is nothing. Shadows and even harmless nodules often show up. They may be thinking that they saw nodules, which may change appearance in 6mos, which is why they are waiting. My mom and sister both have nodules and the doctor says that they are nothing to worry about, but should be monitored yearly.
