Abnormal mammogram

I had a mammogram last week and have an appointment for a diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound on both breasts this Friday. In my left breast they found asymmetrical density and in the right a small mass toward my armpit. The wait is killing me. My mother died of breast cancer at 52 and now I'm 40 and have horrible anxiety over this. I had a biopsy of a cyst 10 years ago and it ended up being fibroid. Should I be so worried?

    I understand that of those called back nine out of ten people are found to have benign problems.

      Your story is my story. I have had many scares. My advice is to do your best to stay as calm as you can. Try not to worry till you have something to worry about. Friday can't come soon enough. Please let me know what you find out. It is easy to feel out of control on this

    Well I went for the mammogram and ultrasound and my BIRAD is 4a which is suspicious but actually good news hopefully. I go Monday to meet with a surgeon about a biopsy but I'm feeling really positive.
