Biopsy Tomorrow

edited April 2022 in Not Diagnosed But Worried

Have a breast biopsy scheduled for tomorrow. Small mass in left breast 8 mm and one axial node slightly thickened. They will do two biopsies - one for mass and one for node. I’m not as freaked out about the mass as I am about the node. I’m glad I found this site. I have my routine mammograms yearly except for 2020 because of COVID. 2021 was fine but 2022 not. Seems strange to me but I know that it can happen. Also, I’m 63 yo with dense breasts so realize this is also a risk factor. My kids are grown but haven’t said anything as to don’t want to worry them until I know more. Thank you for reading.

    Thank you all. Biopsy went pretty well except the radiologist couldn’t get to theone suspicious node without nicking an artery or blood vessel. We’ll hidden. So - he said either the mass is benign and won’t need to worry about node or it’s cancer and they’ll deal with the node in surgery. Not great to hear but he was being careful re the node. The results should be back on Monday where I have an appointment scheduled in the afternoon. High anxiety level and have only told my family that I’ve got an abnormal mammogram that needs further test. I was diagnosed with MS in 2004 and that was horrendous for myself and my family. Fortunately, I’ve been stable all this time with minimal flare-ups thanking God for medical advances in treatment. Don’t want to burden them more with this.
