BI-RADS 3 Question

Posted by katrina123 @katrina123, Oct 11, 2020

A couple of days ago I had a mammogram and an ultrasound. It has been 6 months since my breast radiation. The doctor on the spot said that my images looked normal but then yesterday when I pulled up the details on the internet it said that the images were Birads 3. I was just wondering if is normal to be rated this way after a lumpectomy and radiation. I was so glad that my images looked normal and now I am concerned with the Birads 3 diagnosis.
Thanks

Hi all!
I hope everyone is doing well.
I had a quick question…. Has anyone ever had persistent night sweats prior to breast cancer diagnosis?
I have had it for some time and all of my bloodwork has come back normal (hormone tests etc).
I know I’ve discussed doing a u/s follow up in 6 months but my primary reason I am concerned is that I grew up on a superfund site (ground contamination with plumes due to the Navy). Think Erin Brockovich but on Long Island NY.
All of my prior mammograms/u/s have come back relatively normal in earlier years, as I’ve noted in earlier posts.
Anyway, just curious! I hate to come off as a hypochondriac😂

I also lived on a superfund site in Montana. I understand the thinking very well. I didn’t have the night sweats until after I had the breast cancer and was forced into menopause. Then oh boy, cold showers and fans were the order of the day. Hahaha

Hi Chris! Thanks for your response! So sorry to hear about your bc. Were the night sweats from the cancer or from treatment? Do you mind me asking how old you were when you were diagnosed?

I believe the night sweats were from the treatments originally. I was 35 and they started during chemotherapy, increasing after the complete hysterectomy including ovaries, and continuing through endocrine therapy and still a part of my life almost 18 years later. I do think they are less than they were even a few years ago.
Are you having any kind of treatments? Are you post menopausal?

I see…good to know thank you.
I’ve seen several doctors and no one has any answers. I know it’s not medicine induced, as I had brain surgery in 2020 and I wasn’t on several of them during my recovery and I still suffered from the night sweats.
I’m 41 but my mammograms have gone from BIRADS 1-3 within the past 8 years (medical issues prompted early mammograms). The radiologist brought up a biopsy but with my implants he feels it would be better to do a wait and see since there’s always a risk of rupture (my mass is mid breast).
All my hormone levels are fine and have always been.
