Mammogram repeat

Edited , 3 users are following.

hi ladies I went for my first mammogram, and now the radiologist wants me to go for another scan. I'm 41 and this is my first time getting a mammogram done. I'm so scared and freaking out, I am praying that the second scan comes back normal. has anyone else gone for a repeat mammogram?

    Hi, Back in June I had my first mammogram thinking everything went well and then I get a call 3 days later saying I need to come in for a second mammogram because something came up on my left breast. Couldn't get back in for the second mammogram for two weeks so it was complete worry and nervousness for that two weeks. I've read this is common for first mammogram because they have nothing to look back on. Thankfully everything turned out fine and it was just tissue in my breast overlapping or something like that. It's hard to not worry but I bet everything is fine with you. I had to keep thinking this is common for first time mammograms. Take Care!

      Thank you Liza, this really helps me put my mind at ease. I read the same thing that it's quite common to get a second scan. But as you said it's hard not to worry. It's probably going to take two weeks for me to get another mammogram done. I really appreciate you sharing your experience and positive outcome. Thank you so much 😃

      You're welcome! It's scary when stuff like this happens but thankful for these forums to know we are not going through these life changes alone. Hang in there you'll get through it.
