22 Year DCIS Survivor -New Lump-Biopsy Tuesday
Hi! I was here over a year ago when I went for a biopsy due to something found on ultrasound. Luckily it turned out to be PASH. This year mammogram found focal assynetery and went back for diagnostic and ultrasound on same breast that I had my lumpectomy. I could feel the thickening prior to the ultrasound once I checked. I could tell on the ultrasound this lump looked bad and nothing like the benign case from last year.
My Diagnostic Mammogram and U/S reults:
REPORT EXAMINATION: Left Diagnostic Mammograms with Digital Breast Tomosynthesis EXAMDATE: 5/2/2022 11:14 AM TECHNIQUE: Left all views digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT). Images reviewed with CAD. Images were produced with direct digital imaging. INDICATION: Asymmetry in the medial portion of left subareolar region. Prior history of left breast carcinoma post lumpectomy COMPARISON: Prior screening mammogram dated 4/27/2022 _________________________ FINDINGS: The left breast is heterogeneously dense, which may obscure small masses. Previously described subcentimeter ovoid ill-defined nodule in the left subareolar region at 9:00 position adjacent to the prior lumpectomy site persist on spot compression views. A focused ultrasound examination of the left breast centered at 9:00 position subareolar region demonstrated an irregular hypoechoic mass with posterior acoustic shadowing measuring 0.8 x 0.3 x 0.5 cm corresponding to the mammographic findings
It was bi-rads 4 with no a,b, or c. The radiologist came in after and said if it is then it's early and let's just wait to see what the biopsy said but he said it didn't look good.
Trying to remain calm. Last week I just felt numb. I have already had radiation in that breast so that will not be offered again.
