Should I be worried?
So, someone close to me said their mammogram came back with "teeny, tiny specks of calcification" in one breast. They have to have a needle biopsy done. She was told it's usually 80% benign.
Obviously the odds are in the favor of everything being fine but of course, I'm worried.
Has anyone been through this? How can I be there for her? (What to say, what not to say while she waits to get the biopsy) She's actually more scared of the biopsy process than the result. So is it like really painful or is it just over so fast that the anticipation was worse?
