BI-RAD 4 Core needle biopsy with ultrasound
I'm a 73 year old lady new to the community. Have cystic dense breasts, had twelve biopsies since age 35 - no cancer so far. Once again next week will have yet another core needle biopsy with ultrasound for unpallable area seen on 3D mammogram. Have had 3D mammograms for six years now. This new unpallable area is new within 6 months.
This has been a 40 year roller coast and to say that I am tired is an understatement. I do not want to spend the last quarter of my life on a roller coaster!
And surely, treatment for women in their 70s must be different than for younger women.
Would like to hear from ladies in their 70s with similar circumstances. I am seriously considering stopping all mammograms. The continual years long anxiety is no longer worth it.
