Huge thanks to everyone who held me close and kept me in their thoughts and prayers. I got the results of my needle biopsy back and the spot seen on the mammograms was nothing more than fibrocystic breast tissue. Completely and totally benign! Again, thank you. Knowing that I had so much support in my corner kept me from totally wigging out.

For any of you out there who haven’t had a mammogram and probably should have, don’t let fear keep you from getting one. First off, the actual mammogram was not nearly as bad as I had anticipated. Yeah, it was uncomfortable but the pain was minimal. Second, the needle biopsy was nothing as far as pain is concerned. All I felt was a little pinch from the needle with the local anesthesia. I do have one hell of a bruise but, even that does not hurt. Finally, if it had turned out to be cancer, my little lump was just that…LITTLE. Early detection is key.

Benign is beautiful!

    You’re right. Mammograms aren’t that bad, they’re usually pretty quick.

      It’s funny how I had built it up into something pretty bad and the whole procedure wasn’t that bad at all.

    Glad to hear all is well! You’re right, mammograms really are not as bad as people think they are. Not my favourite way to spend a morning, but not THAT bad. I’m grateful they are around.
