And she's been notified she needs to schedule an appointment for further testing. We are all so scared. What kind of testing is going to be done and how soon will she know if it is Cancer?

Hi Phyllis,

Please try not to panic yet as the majority of all abnormal mammograms turn out to be nothing too serious. I have a friend who regularly has abnormal mammograms and she has had several biopsies for lumps that have always been benign. Knowing that she is prone to this, she and her doctor are very proactive in checking for new lumps.
