Microcalcifications and no mass shown on mammogram
First off, I'm so glad I stumbled across this site in all of my (tons) of google searches!
I had a diagnostic mammogram today for microcalcifications that were found on my screening mammogram 2 weeks ago. Radiologist is concerned and told me "more likely than not, it is cancer". Biopsy is scheduled for next Wednesday. They measured 1.2cm from I guess the beginning of the group to the end. He said that's pretty small. He also said most likely DCIS, which I'm thankful for, but obviously he doesn't know for sure just yet. My question is this... what are the chances of it being IDC instead if there is no mass? My breast tissue is almost entirely fatty the report said. No lumps felt or mass showing on the mammogram. In my head that tells me that's a good sign but is that overly optimistic? I thought all breast cancer was a mass? That's why I'm so confused. Does he maybe think DCIS because there is no mass? I'm a mess right now. Hopefully my rambling makes some sense. Thank you all!
