Boob Invader

Well....I hate to report my right boob failed the re-test mammogram I had on Friday.  They did an ultrasound immediately and I very clearly saw the "boob invader" that has taken up residence in my body. 

The ultrasound tech is forbidden from giving any results in the office.  She told me the doctor's office should have the report by late afternoon.  I called my doc as soon as I left and found out they close early on Fridays.  The receptionist said the doc would still check for results and would call me if there was anything "urgent".  She didn't call.  ...I guess it's "good" news that she didn't call??

Obviously I have no idea what exactly this invader is, but Dr. Google Images told me it's a simple fluid filled cyst!!  (Yes, I'm completely aware you should not check on the internet for things of that nature, and yet, I did it anyway.)  Knowledge is power...even if it's not correct, it did make me feel a lot better.  I've pretty much been able to let it go all weekend long!!

I'll keep you posted.



  1. Oh, Dana, I'm so sorry that you're going through this! Don't you just HATE when the ultrasound people can't say anything? I don't know about you, but next time, I'm bringing a BRIBE with me!!

    I don't know if this helps, but my friend, who was diagnosed with breast cancer, was contacted IMMEDIATELY when they discovered it was cancer! I think you're right, I bet it's just a cyst!

    Please, please keep us posted!

  2. My Mom and I get those cyst and a friend had a "big" one that went totally away be reducing her caffeine intake.
