Pregnant and BIRADS 4
I’m new here, 34yo and 6 months pregnant with my first. I just had a core needle biopsy on Tuesday after ultrasound found an irregular lump in my breast and the radiologist marked it BIRADS 4. The lump is described as a “hypoechoic nodule seen with mild irregularity with a hyperechoic rim. This measures 1.6 x 0.7 x 0.7 cm.” Now I’m waiting on results.
Between being pregnant and this, I have been seeing so many different doctors and they all keep making comments almost like they’re assuming I do have cancer. It’s unnerving. One midwife said to me “wow, but you’re so young!”
It’s pretty scary to be going through this while pregnant. I am wondering if anybody else has any similar experiences while pregnant and/or can shed any light on the report. I googled hypoechoic/hyperechoic but couldn’t really make sense of what I was reading and whether the description of the lump was worrying.
Any COVID-friendly suggestions for getting my mind off it while I wait for the results would also be welcomed! I live in a state in the US that’s really struggling with a high number of COVID cases, so I can’t go out and meet up with friends and distract myself.
Also, one last question, the core needle biopsy site is still pretty tender, so I’m still trying to limit movement. It’s been three days. Is this normal?
Thanks for any guidance, advice, words of wisdom or encouragement!
