Hi everyone I'm looking for some advice. I'm an American who lives in Mexico. In may I went for a 3d mammogram and they found suspicious lumps in both breasts and did 2 immediate core biopsies.
Thankfully 1 came back as good and the other side they said had schlerosing adenosis which is benign. The doctor recommended getting it taken out but after doing some research and reading about it I was not concerned and though I would just monitor it. The doctor didnt speak great English so we didnt communicate much.
Fast forward to November and I try to get another mammogram to monitor it and the doctor is the same as before and she completely does not understand why I have done nothing and is pressing me that I must get this done and 30% of the time schlerosing adenosis turns out to be cancer she wont do a mammogram and wants me to see the surgeon and she gives me his card.
I talked to the surgeon now, his English is very good, and he says they always work together on this and its standard practice for them to remove schlerosing adenosis and they have found that 25% of the time it turns out to be cancer. I am skeptical if this is really standard procedure other places because all I read online says I dont need to do anything. I'm not sure how to proceed and I'm scared but also dont want to undergo surgery if it's not necessary. I wonder what the procedure for this would be in the USA and if I should get a second opinion or what I should do.
