DENSE BREAST CLUB!!!

I had my first callback on mammogram (baby, you're a star!) last March and had to get a biopsy. I'm fine.

HOWEVER, the callback was two days after the results, and then I had to wait a week before they could determine if I needed a biopsy, which took another week of waiting when they said I did need it. The good news: You can't feel the biopsy at all and it wasn't cancer. The bad? I'm self employed and I pay for my family's shit ass health care who said the biopsy was an elective surgery and not preventative so I had to cough up $3K for it.

assholes

Since then I've had three friends go through the same boob drama... maybe it's the case of the 46s?

Please start quoting yourself. Because it will be funny.

Unfollow due to you quoting yerself. haha I don't know a woman who hasn't been told she has 'dense breasts'. Sometimes I think it's a way for doctors to cover their asses. I've had The Callback and the needle and etc etc... I was AOK, yet your anxiety is unavoidable, of course. Keep on with the sweet moments with your darling family and friends.

I had a breast reduction and it is the fast ticket to the dense breast club. Loved this story

Love this. So sweet getting that one-on-one time, especially with the youngest kiddo who has always had to compete for attention with the older ones.

Dense breast club here too! Actually, I'm in the "extremely dense breast club" which means I automatically have to have an ultrasound in addition to a mammogram for all my regular screenings. The doctor told me the mammogram is mostly worthless when it comes to detecting anything in my breasts - she said it's "like looking for a white rabbit in a snow storm." Annoying, and a bit scary. My partner claims that "dense breasts" is really code for "nice tits", so I have "extremely nice tits"!
