I have a mammogram recall, the appointment is tomorrow, I’m going on my own. I was told it was routine, but to bring a support person (?) .

I was informed that as it was my first mammogram that they have nothing to compare to and the radiographers are not in agreement, so I am being recalled.

Has anyone else had this happen to them and if you don’t mind sharing what was your experience?

I am a little worried.

  • This happened to me once as well. But hope for the best.

  • I had this occur and all was ok.
    Hope it went well.

  • Hope all was well

  • I had this happen and it was quite scary for me but mainly because I received the recall while I was sitting with my husband while he was having chemo. I was more worried about how he would react and if it would put more stress on him. Mine came back all clear so I was able to just concentrate on him and the short time we had left together. I hope yours turns out to be nothing, just a glitch on the machine.

  • I hope they just didn’t get a good enough reading first time round.

  • I hope it was just routine and all went well.

  • I was told it happens more often when they don’t have a previous image to compare. They’re more ;ikely to need to check something benign.

  • I hope it was just to get things checked and that it all went well

  • Hopefully everything went well. Yes it happened to me too. I got a mammogram done when I was 39. Because my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer out of the blue when she was 40. I had to go back and they were taking some tissues. I was lucky and it wasn’t cancerous.

  • I got a recall a few years ago and panicked. Turned out the hormonal changes showed up as an abnormality so I was very pleased. Try not to over think it.

  • How did it go? ????

  • How did you go yesterday anonymous poster ?

  • i m following up too. same question

  • Cannot help really as this has never happened to me,.

  • I have my first appointment this weekend so I will be interested to hear if I get recalled. I will post again after my appointment and let you know.
