Had a scare last year around this same time. I'm extremely worried. Diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound scheduled


MAMMO SCREEN BILATERAL WITH TOMO

CLINICAL HISTORY: 41 years female presents for routine bilateral screening mammogram. No personal history of breast cancer.

COMPARISON: 06/20/2011 left mammogram and priors of the left side.

TECHNIQUE: Tomosynthesis/3-D CC and MLO views were obtained.

These mammograms were interpreted with the aid of CAD.

Utilizing the Tyrer-Cuzick (IBIS 8) model and the patient provided risk factors, this patient's lifetime breast cancer risk is calculated at 7.21 %. This is compared to an average lifetime breast cancer risk of 12.8 % for similar age-matched patients.

FINDINGS:

The breasts parenchyma is composed of scattered fibroglandular elements , not significantly changed from the prior examination on the left. No prior right mammograms are available for comparison

Right breast: 15 mm slightly lobulated mass is noted in the central right breast slightly medially. Small asymmetry of the anterior to this mass on the MLO projection.

Left breast: Postsurgical changes in the left anterior breast appears stable No new dominant masses, developing asymmetries, areas of architectural distortion or suspicious clusters of microcalcifications are identified.

IMPRESSION: BI-RADS category 0 - incomplete. Need additional imaging evaluation.

Mass and asymmetry in the right breast

RECOMMENDATION:

1. Additional views RIGHT breast with possible ultrasound if indicated based on additional views.

2. Annual screening mammogram LEFT breast in the absence of new clinical symptoms.
