I just heard from the place that I dropped my mammogram and sonogram info off yesterday. Their MD agrees that I need the biopsy. They called with a list of questions and it looks like the earliest I can have the biopsy is Tuesday because I have to stop taking, for 5 days before the biopsy, an herb (fenugreek) that I take daily. I wish I knew that before I took todays pills.

That phone call was a load off my mind, now I just have to worry about the actual procedure.

Thank you all for the kind thoughts and encouragement.

Is this a needle biopsy or the surgical one?

I know what you mean. I had the needle one two years ago. The anxiety before was worse than the procedure. If it's any comfort, the vast majority of these come back clean. They generally order them out of an abundance of caution.

I'm sure everything will be fine.

Years ago Petzi Sis got called about her mammogram because they saw "something". So they did a needle biopsy and it was a hard mass of dried blood. They asked her about any accidents and twenty years earlier she was hit by a stupid girl who ran a red light and pushed PS's car into a telephone pole. She wasn't really injured because the car hit the passenger side but she was a little bruised. And years later that little blood mass moved from around her ribs to her breast tissue.
