My week

Monday I got the news that my pap smear came back normal. The cancer scare had ended.

Monday I also went in for a Mammogram, I had no concerns. I was excited to get the ball rolling on that portion of my life.

Wednesday they called....

         They found a mass on my right breast.

I was in shock.

I went in Friday for another mammogram, a spot compression test and an U/S on the area.

Needless to say, I was a bit scared.

This place is amazing, they are relaxed and walk you though the whole thing. They let you see the scans, they show you what to look for, and they let you know immediately the results, instead of making a woman wait the weekend, or longer.

The mammogram was only on my right breast and they found the spot immediately.
They did a spot compression, where they press down on that area closer, and try to compress it to see if it will go away.
Yes, they press harder, I didn't think THAT was possible. It is!

Needless to say, it didn't go away.

Off to the Ultrasound room I went, I spent about an hour in there, with them searching and talking and showing me what it is and letting me feel it.

They spoke with the doctor and the results were in conclusive, I then had two options.

1) I can have a biopsy
2) I can wait 6 months, to come back in for another one, the whole time checking to make sure the lump doesn't get any bigger.

I chose option 2.

I will be checking myself and making sure nothing gets larger, then hopefully in 6 months, they will view it and say it's a calcium buildup and I'll be on my way happy and healthy.

I am back fully now everyone!
No more scares in the horizon... On with life, not that I wouldn't have lived it anyhow, but now it's not bittersweet!

Thank you all for sticking around, I missed you!
