Biopsy tomorrow for calcifications BI-RADS 4B
Hi all, Just wanted to get some thought and reassurance from those who have been in this situation. I had my first mammogram screening two weeks ago which came back with suspicious calcifications. I had the diagnostic mamm last week which confirmed the suspicions and I am scheduled for a biopsy tomorrow. I am going out of my mind with worry. When I spoke to the radiologist following the second mamm, he said he was pretty sure it was DCIS and would need a lumpectomy. This was the report:
Finding in the right breast is suspicious. Biopsy should be considered. There
are loosely grouped coarse heterogeneous and punctate microcalcifications in the
upper outer quadrant of the right breast at 10:30, 8 cm from the nipple in a
segmental somewhat linear distribution.
Suspicious Abnormality (Intermediate Suspicion For Malignancy) (ACR BI-RADS 4B)
From what I have read online, segmental and linear distributions has a high correlation with malignancy. But is it ever benign? Does anyone with this kind of calcification ever get a benign result? Also, while the radiologist said DCIS, is it also possible that this could be invasive? He said it was unlikely, but I have read so many stories of what was thought to be DCIS turning out to be invasive and sometimes quite advanced.
Anyone have any experience with this? I am new to it all and feeling pretty overwhelmed. Thank you for any insights you can share.
