Resume mammo: You should resume mammo. Biopsy any suspecious lesions as indicaed. You should also continue colon cancer surveillance, such as colonoscopy, physical exam,and perphaps tumor marker. CT scan or PET-CT only optional as indicated. Do not worry, just follow the standard care procedure.

You should: probably resume screening mammography this year...you haven't had a mammo since 2010.. The PET/CT was last year.
