Waiting on biopsy
I am a 47 year old mom of 4. I recently had my routine 3-D mammogram and was called back for further testing on my left breast. I wasn't too worried because I was called back last year for the right one. Last year, I had an ultra sound and no further tests were needed.. Fast forward to this year and the other breast...they are recommending a biopsy. I can feel the lump now that I know where it is, but didn't find it before with my self exam. I know that it it probably benign, but that doesn't stop me for worrying. I have pasted the results below. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Suspicious mass left breast 10:30. Ultrasound-guided core
IT IS OUR POLICY TO NOTIFY ALL MAMMOGRAPHY PATIENTS OF THEIR RESULTS BY
Result Code: (4) SUSPICIOUS ABNORMALITY - BIOPSY SHOULD BE CONSIDERED
Follow Up: (BX) RECOMMEND BIOPSY
INDICATION: Call back for partially imaged mass in the deep upper left
breast seen on the MLO view only
COMPARISON: Previous mammograms dating back to 11/03/2017
FINDINGS: Spot films were obtained in the MLO and exaggerated CC
projections with a full ML view. Persistent of the mass is noted on the
MLO spot film and the full ML view. The lesion is not well visualized on
the cc view due to its depth, but should be medial based on the
tomosynthesis synthesis grid.
Targeted ultrasound of the left upper inner breast was performed at
posterior depth demonstrating a solid slightly heterogeneous taller than
wide mass at 10:30 11 cm from the nipple measuring 1.4 x 1.1 x 1.1 cm.
There is no enhancement or shadowing behind the lesion. Targeted
ultrasound of the left axilla was also performed, demonstrating only
normal appearing left axillary lymph nodes.
