3 years out - New Finding on Mammo Today (BiRad 4)
I was diagnosed with Stage 1, IDC, 100% hormone positive when I was 40. I'm now 43. I had a lumpectomy and 30 treatments of radiation. I'm currently on daily 20mg Tamoxifen and Lupron injections every 3 months. I went for my yearly mammogram today and they're seeing something in my opposite side. Original cancer was in my left breast...this new finding is in my right side. I'm thankfully scheduled for a biopsy tomorrow, but I'm worried. It's a BiRad 4. I forgot what this spiral down the rabbit hole of worry felt like. Maybe it's nothing, maybe it isn't. Posting the results to get some thoughts and anyone with similar findings. Thanks all!!
Mammo diagnostic bilateral w 3d & cad: There is an asymmetry seen in the
right breast at 6 o'clock in the posterior depth on the CC view. This is a
US breast right limited (diagnostic): There is a 6 mm x 5 mm x 4 mm
irregularly shaped, non-parallel, hypoechoic mass with angular margins
with no posterior features seen in the right breast at 7 o'clock, 6 cm
from the nipple. The mass correlates with the asymmetry seen on the
mammogram. Associated features include internal vascularity.
There is a biopsy clip more anteriorly in the right breast from a prior
benign biopsy at the site of a fibroadenoma.
Imaging of the right axillary region shows normal appearing lymph nodes.
