Bi-Rads 5 Limbo
I started having symptoms back in November - burning type pain & nipple discharge. I guess because of my age (34) & because the symptoms would come & go it was easy for me to blow it off. I also have no family history. Last month I realized I had a small scab on my nipple that had been present for weeks & no injury to explain its existence. I guess it sounds silly that it took me so long to realize that I had no reason for it to be there but I suppose because it was so small it was easy for me to dismiss. I also realized my nipple would retract when my arm is lifted. I started to connect the dots & Dr. Google convinced me to make an appointment with my ob/gyn. She examined me & referred me for a diagnostic mammogram, prescribing an antibiotic to take in the meantime in case it was an infection. Yesterday I had the digital mammogram & ultrasound. The radiologist determined it was abnormal, Bi-Rads 5. My lymph nodes are enlarged & there is a single mass in the 1:00 position tracking towards the nipple 2.1 x 2.6 cm. My biopsy is scheduled for Monday. Yesterday I just kept googling because all I want is answers. I feel like I could deal better if I just knew.. but ofc there isn't going to be any answers until biopsy results are in. I'm trying to just make my peace with that. Sorry for the novel.. any & all support or advice is greatly appreciated!!
