BI-RADS 5, four biopsies this week
Hi all, first post. Sadly, I'm no stranger to the cancer community. I had Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia when I was a kid, that later relapsed and was treated with a BMT.
I had my first mammogram last week because of my own cancer history and family history of breast cancer. It wasn't very conclusive, so I went back a couple days later for another mammogram and an ultrasound. Immediately after the ultrasound I was rushed into a room to set up a core biopsy appointment ASAP.
Findings from my previous imaging:
Ultrasound left breast:
An irregular solid mass is present in the subareolar breast which measures 30 x 10 x 29 mm. In addition at posterior depth in the posterior central breast there is a round solid mass which measures 8 mm in diameter. At 10:00, 3 to 4 cm from the nipple there is a round solid mass which measures 5 x 6 x 4 mm.
Ultrasound right breast:
In the subareolar breast there is an irregular hypoechoic solid mass which measures approximately 18 x 33 x 26 mm. There are tubular protrusions of solid material medially and laterally from the mass which are suggestive of intraductal extension. A solid round mass is present at 3:00, 5 to 6 cm from the nipple which measures 6 mm in diameter. At 3:00, 3 to 4 cm from the nipple there is an irregular solid mass which measures 10 x 4 x 6 mm. At 7:00, 5 to 6 cm from the nipple there is an irregular solid mass which measures 6 x 5 x 6 mm. At 12:00, 3 to 4 cm from the nipple there is an irregular solid mass which measures 12 x 9 x 14 mm, this correlates with the site of architectural distortion in the upper central breast.
Both are BI-RADS category 5. I feel sick with worry; I'm already dealing with a lot of heath issues from my previous cancer and treatment and truly didn't think that this would come for me so soon. I plan on doing a lot of reading between now and my appointment. Just needed to vent somewhere with people who understand.
