Some good news
My mom called tonight. She had her ultrasound today to follow up on the questionable mammograms. The professional opinion is that there is nothing to worry about and no sign that this small thing (5 mm thingy) is cancerous. They even compared the last 3 or 4 mammograms (I forget which) and determined that it has always been there and never changed size or shape. It just wasn't as easy to see with the older style mammograms. Most likely it is a calcium deposit. She has the option of having a biopsy if she feels insecure in the diagnosis and she may yet decide to do that. But overall it is very good news and she seemed very cheerful and upbeat.
