    I have had three friends have biopsy's because of these specks of calcium and their tests came back benign. They were all in their 50's. Another friend age 44 had the same thing and it came back DCIS. She is just completely her treatment which consisted of a mastectomy but no other treatment. She is in the process of having reconstruction. She had to have a mastectomy because it was so wide spread. Hang in there and take care, Sharon

    I am 41. I went in for my first mammogram and they found areas of concern. So after ultrasound and biopsies they said it was DCIS. Everyone said if you were to have cancer, this is the one to have. It is considered stage zero. Before they would perform the lumpectomy they ordered an MRI to make sure there wasn't anything else and to verify the size of the DCIS. The MRI showed up against my chest wall was a small tumor. The biopsy after that showed to be invasive breast cancer. Just like that, everything changed. The mammogram did not see this. Now I have had a mastectomy on the left side. The MRI also showed concerns on the other side, but they were benign. The surgeon did lumpectomy on the right side. I also had a pet scan. Neither the petscan nor the MRI showed any cancer in the lymph nodes. But after the lymph node dissection, 2 of 14 were positive for cancer. I hope they order an MRI for you, unless your biopsies turn out benign. I remember when they first found the calcium deposits they said they were going to biopsy them "to prove they weren't cancer". So there is hope!

    Mine turned out to be DCIS. This ended up being the least of my problems. I hope you get better results.
