Because when you see a glimpse of something that doesn't look normal, you will freak out and spend every day worrying until you get your results in the mail! Had my yearly mammo this morning. Everything went fine until the last image when the tech accidentally bumped a button that caused the system to shut down. So she had to retake one view. As I was gathering up my purse to leave the room and go change, I noticed the reflection of the last image in the glass of a picture hanging on the wall opposite the display monitor. And I could very clearly see a bright white spot on the breast image -- not huge -- I'm guessing maybe about the size of a pea. So I'm asking for y'all to help me calm down and not worry about this for the next few days until I get the report. Most likely it is a calcification... I did have a small bump checked out 11-ish years ago that turned out to be the remnant of a time when I had a blocked duct that caused some inflammation when I was nursing easy child. I don't remember for certain but it could be on that side. I hope that's all it is... Sigh.
