We are Macmillan. Cancer Support
I've just joined this group/site as I have had a whirl of activitly in the last month and would like some input if possible.
Between 13th Jan and 9th Feb, I've had 3 mammograms, 2 ultrasounds, 6 needle biopsies, and last week a wire biopsy which I'm still recovering from. All because the first mammogram showed calcification, which on further investigation showed a radial scar.
I've been googling, and it appears to be quite rare, but I can't find much more than academic research. I wonder if anyone has any experience or stats on malignancy, as I still have two weeks to go until I get the results, and after such a lot of activity the waiting game is frustrating and worrying. I can't fault the treatment I've had so far, amazing speed and activity from my NHS hospital but I'd just like more info!!
I don't know the answer but suggest you contact the nurses here on the site on 0808 808 0000. They are very kind and helpful and I'm sure they will be able to answer your questions or point you in the right direction. They operate Monday to Friday 9am to 8pm.

Love Lulu xx
Thanks Lulu, that's helpful! Guess I just have to wait for the results!
I have found out I still have over another week to wait, so any further info gratefull received, not sure what I'm looking for, but feel everything is very much up in the air until I know.
have just had my "unknown" maybe mayebe radial scar removed along with some lymph gland (painfull) and was just wondering as to your results
Thanks for asking Jan, sorry the lymph glands were painful, I didn't have that done! Results are tomorrow thank god! So fed up of waiting - Really don't know what to expect, but am hoping they got all they had to get out!
It is a tad confusing Marion had my op on friday and it seens i am not good with a GA so was unable to take in the info after, tried to ask on monday but had a fallout with my allocated "specialist" nurse to the point refuse to see her( not good I know but.....) getting my results on the 8th march ,postive thoughts to you for tomorrw
