Enhancing duct and unspecified mass…thoughts?
Hi everyone! What a rollercoaster we are all on. Initially I bragged about how swiftly this all moves…until it stopped…now I’m not sure it would move if I didn’t push! But that’s not why I’m here right now :)
I started with clear nipple discharge maybe two months ago, maybe longer. Six weeks ago I had drops, then a big circle on my shirt and it then turned bloody. Now back to clear/pink.
9/12 - Gyno referred me to imaging
9/19 - negative mammo, US showed dialated duct with intraductal hypoechoic round mass. Referred to biopsy.
9/26 - Radiologist calls to say he can’t biopsy due to location. Super weird.
10/1 - Onc surgeon refers to contrast MRI.
10/11 - MRI done, results came in today.
**Here’s my point/question…MRI shows nothing new, yay!, but says “mild enhancing duct, no overt dilatation is demonstrated, and mass is not specifically identified.” What does this mean compared to the US? One says dialated while the other says no dilatation. (Similar but different words). And how is this the most sophisticated test yet still tells me nothing? Is it normal to just reference the mass as unspecified with zero info on its characteristics??
thanks for your thoughts!
