Did anyone not have symptoms when they found a lobulated mass ?
Hi. I had my first mammogram then called back next day for another one then moved to then next room after the Dr looked at the days again, to perform an ultrasound. My report says : scattered areas of fibroglandar density (B).
Findings BIRADS 4 / 2cm mass right 12 0’clck
Lobulated hypoechoic mass right breast with internal color flow. No shadowing.
Probable dilated ducts low level echoes @ 12 o’clock. 3 cm from nipple. There. Is a 8x3x7 mm ovoid hypoechoic cystic structure at 2 o’clock 5 cm from
Honestly .. (I have biopsy Monday) it’s my first time mammogram- my mom just died from colorectal cancer and aunt sick also breast cancer. Does the numbers sound serous because I have not been explained to about these things and the Dr is out – I like blunt , honesty. Thank you all!!
Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Breast Cancer Support Group.
I just wanted to send you virtual hugs during which I’m sure is a tough time, especially given this is your first mammogram.
It’s hard to dissect a radiology report because I know from experience, what I interpreted as serious, was something very benign.
Just hang tight until Monday and hopefully you’ll get some answers. ♥️
Could be LCIS wich is stage zero. That is what I was diagnosed with. Similar pathology report.
Thank you so much ❤️
They just place a marker then and keep an eye out?After the first mammogram,they scheduled me a 6 month follow up , then called me that night to come back to get more pics
I know this can be extremely stressful but do know that it’s better for your radiology team to be extremely thorough than to miss something and then catch it later. ♥️
Because of my dense breast tissue and family history of breast cancer they will be doing an excisional biopsy and then I will be taking tamoxifin. After the surgery I will be on an every 6 months schedule for mammogram and breast MRI. Some women with the diagnosis only need monitoring and lifestyle coaching.
Hugs from me, too. It is great that you found this group right after a mammography but I'd say wait till biopsy and its result. Make sure they know your family history and hopefully they'll be thorough. Once the biopsy results are out and your Dr draws you a path, those on the similar paths could share their experience. My humble advice is, stay away from internet until then 🙂
@jassafrass81 first of all take a deep breathe and try to remain calm. I know it’s easier said than done. I know this is a very stressful time for you but until you get biopsy results you won’t know much. I had an area of concern on my mammogram and had a biopsy. They even gave me the option to wait 6 months before doing the biopsy. I chose to do it right away because a strong family history on my moms side. (Mother died of metastatic breast cancer at 64 after 5 years of fighting it, maternal grandmother died at 50 with breast and ovarian cancer, grandmother’s sister had breast cancer twice. My mother had no sisters.) Biopsy said atypical lobular hyperplasia (ALH) and flat epithelial atypia (FEA). Genetic testing revealed no BRCA gene or other genetic mutations. Had a lumpectomy and the pathology reported lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) along with the ALH and FEA. LCIS used to be considered stage 0 cancer until 2018 and then it was reclassified as a pre cursor or high risk marker. I am going to be 50 this year and was diagnosed 2 years ago. My tyrer cuzick score is 60% lifetime risk of getting breast cancer with no knowledge of my paternal history. I am currently taking tamoxifen, get a breast MRI and mammogram yearly 6 months apart, see my oncologist every 3 months and my breast surgeon every 6 months. Lobular cancer is very tricky because there’s rarely a lump and hard to detect on imaging. Lobular breast cancer only accounts for about 10% of breast cancer. I do recommend writing down questions that you want to ask your doctor, taking notes, and asking the doctor to explain anything you don’t understand. It’s good if you can have someone there with you because your head will be spinning. It’s scary but early detection is a huge blessing. You are strong and you got this!!! Big virtual hugs. You are not alone.
Thank you! The closet honest opinion I got over here was : well it could be , or could not be. Haha. The imaging saw something , made me come back the next day , and from that imaging they moved me to the ultrasound room. Then double booked me for the soonest “opening” coming up next week. – it’s just the NOT Knowing that worries me. Once I have a definite yea or no I can move forward from there.
Thank you. What did they do from there? And does a biopsy hurt? How are you now?
