Linear non mass enhancement MRI results
A little over a month ago, I thought I had a breast infection. I scheduled an appointment with my breast specialist. Before the appointment, my left breast and left arm swelled significantly. Still swollen but not as bad. After a clear ultrasound and mammogram, I was scheduled for an MRI. Received results on Sept 29. Don't see the doctor until Oct 10. Waiting is killing me. Was hoping someone may have insight on what the radiologist stated. I have a linear non mass enhancement near a dilated duct. It's Birad 4. I can't decide if the 7cm is size or distance from nipple??? Below is the actual report:
Left breast: The left breast demonstrates heterogeneous fibroglandular tissue
with moderate background parenchymal enhancement.
Linear non mass enhancement is visualized in the central left breast, extending
from the nipple anteriorly to 7 cm posterior to the nipple in the posterior one
third of the breast (series 10401 image 116). An adjacent dilated duct is
visualized lateral to this enhancement with T1 bright signal consistent with
intraductal blood products or proteinaceous debris. Additional scattered foci
of enhancement similar to prior breast MRI. Susceptibility artifact is
visualized in the outer left breast consistent with prior biopsy localization
clips. No suspicious left axillary or internal mammary lymph nodes.
