Kim, that's just the way I have felt about everything I'm going through... Why invest the energy in needless wory. When they make a difinitive diagnosis.. I'll deal with whatever it is then...

Mamograms have become better technology..they "find" more "things" on the x-rays than they used to... so the sonograms are important to differentiate what the "things" are.

In the meantime we are left to wory.

I have read articals from Med journals suggesting that Mamograms are not the best diagnostic tool at all.. that maybe all women should be having sonograms for screening.... But insurance wouldn't pay....

I'll keep you in my thoughts Kim...
