Bi-Rads 4 2cm Spiculated - Scared
Hello! I had to return to get more testing from my routine mammogram (3D this time). Results in my ultrasound report: 1.8 x 2.0 x 1.7 cm irregularly shaped, spiculated, hypoechoic, shadowing nodule in the 9:00 right breast 8 cm from the nipple. No suspicious lymph nodes are seen in the right axilla. I was happy about the lymph nodes and then I looked up what "spiculated" means, so now I'm very scared again. I have my biopsy scheduled in 5 days. Reading the posts on here give me a lot of hope! My mother had stage 4 post-menopausal breast cancer and lived for almost 16 years after diagnosis. I am praying that if it is malignant that it's contained to the breast - I feel I will be able to handle it pretty well. I'm 51 and married with 3 children. Talking to other people in the same situation is a great help to me.
