The Mammogram Follow-up Call

 Kaiser called me today to schedule the follow up from my annual. I told them I already had it scheduled, and asked what the report meant by "right breast asymmetry". They said it's just a part they couldn't make out and doing a second mammogram is "routine" and it's "probably nothing"

Alarm bells?  Kinda? It always bothers me when medical people are vague like that, then tell me it's routine and probably nothing. I know the medical people don't want to cause alarm in patients, but I'd rather hear it from them than asking Doctor Google.

They're probably right, and I'm being a little alarmist.
