Waiting for biopsy results !
Hello - thankful for this forum where i can ask questions and read comments. I'm 69 years old and had a mammogram this past Monday at which time they noticed suspicious mass. They did a 3D mammogram and an ultrasound at that time.
IMPRESSION: SUSPICIOUS OF MALIGNANCY
The 0.404 cm x 0.513 cm x 0.7 cm irregular mass in the left breast at 12
o'clock middle depth is at a moderate suspicion for malignancy. An
ultrasound guided biopsy is recommended.
Today was the core biopsy. Results should be back in 2-3 days. I'm a nervous wreck. Radiologist explained the mass is small, which is good sign.
I was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma 6 years ago and am currently in remission. Scared to death this is all going to come back. It's going to be a long couple of days, trying to keep busy and doing alot of praying.
When I research the size of the mass, it is usually in whole numbers like 1cm or 5 cm. I'm not good at numbers, so i have a question. Based on my sizes above, do I consider them 4cm x 5cm or are they truly less than the whole number.
Thank you for any support or comments.
