Radiologist told me I have breast cancer without a biopsy.
To start a few months ago I found a lump on my breast. I waited to see if it would go away. It did not so I made an appointment with my OBGYN and sure enough she felt the lump too. This was last week. Today I had a 3-D mammogram with an ultra sound directly after. Neither techs would give me any information about my results, which is to be expected expected. Upon completion of my ultra sound the tech had me wait and went to get the radiologist. She came in and said I have breast cancer and I have 4 mass's and that she wanted the tech to take an additional look at my lymph nodes under where my breast meets my arm pit. When the tech looked that's where one of the mass's is in my lymph nodes. She said that is one that she def wants to biopsy that one. She said the biopsy will tell us what's say what stage it is and what type of cancer it is. I don't understand how a radiologist is able to tell from a mammogram and an ultra sound that you have breast cancer. How is that even possible??? I'm so confused. I'm only 32 years old. My fathers mother was diagnosed with breast cancer at 34 years old. Any advice would be great. I go for my byposies on Thursday which is the day after tomorrow.
