Clear but lumpy

So the ultrasound didn't turn up any discrete masses, though I was told repeatedly that I have lumpy boobs.  I just want you all to know that they look fine from the outside.  Anyway, it was quite a relief.  They said that the mammogram done in February was very high-quality and definitely showed nothing then, though my boobs were still "quite dense."  I was told to keep having the ol' knockers examined by my OB and to come back for a needle biopsy if needed.  

Thank you for all of your good wishes.  I will now be more vigilant about self-examinations and whatnot.  Maybe I'll see if I can get on the Ch.ristina Ap.plegate plan of an ultrasound once a year and a mammogram once a year, done six months apart.  This is apparently what allowed her to catch her cancer so early.  

I'm off to catch some quick Zs now -- young master S. was up shrieking last night since his canines are coming in.  I hear those hurt.

GOOD NEWS!

About the boob, not the canines. Those probably suck...but good to have, I guess!!

woohoo!!! I actually saw this a bit earlier in my reader, but didn't have time to comment. Because I ~was~ waiting for an update.

I hope you and the lumpy boobies are well rested!

Glad to hear the ladies were ok. Please smooch Mr. S, my future son-in-law, for me. I hope his canines come in quick.

Yay! And yes, do stay vigilant.

Just found out that a good friend of mine, only 34 yrs. old, has breast cancer. Fortunately, they found it early, and she's having a double masectomy which will hopefully keep it away for good, but still. Scary.
