Cal back for 2nd Breast screening appointment

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi

I’ve been called back for a 2nd appointment as there is something unclear in my 1st X-ray.

Feeling a little worried, shocked, scared.

Any advice please?

    Loads of women are called back and it turns out to be nothing. I was called back and was in the early stages of cancer which was dealt with quickly and efficiently.  I am fine now but would urge you not to worry. Worrying cannot change anything and might create health problems of it's own. Wait and see what happens at your recall and deal with the results then.

    Dear Diane,

    Many times, the radiologist just needs more views to detail the breasts. Hopefully, the mammogram is 3D, which is more detailed.

    I have been called back many times, and there was nothing wrong. However, it doesn't do any good to worry, until there is anything to worry about. You end up worrying twice as much.

    Usually the call backs are positive 10% of the time.

    I am a Nurse Practitioner

    Best Regards

    Merry Juliana
