Hi,

Can someone chime in and walk me off the ledge? I was dx'd 4 years about with IDC Stage 1 ER- PR+ HER2- Grade 3. I had surgery AC + T and radiation. I have had clear mammos until yesterday when I went in for my routine mammo and they saw a new "something" on my left breast (my cancer was on the right). U/S confirmed the lesion, the radiologist was hoping it was a simple or complex cyst so tried aspirating it. That didn't work, so they did biopsy (12 or 20 gauge?). The birads came back as 4B.

What are the chances of this being a recurrence or a new cancer? Has anyone gone through this and it was not cancer? I cannot imagine putting my daughters through this again.

Any comments welcome.

Hi So sorry you're back here. The Birads 4B would be the score of your mammogram and that means "4B: Finding with an moderate likelihood of being cancer (more than 10% but no more than 50%)" You should be getting a call if they did a biopsy yesterday as well. That goes out to the lab and I hope you get the results soon. If it is a cancer it would be considered a new cancer since it occurred in your other breast. (I think that's right, anyway)

Wishing you good luck, please let us know how you make out.

It's possible that bilateral BC could be an indication of an inherited mutation.

Even with no known family history, it might be good to request a referral to a genetic counselor sometime soon in order to consider testing, the results of which may help determine treatment.

On the other hand, perhaps it is a benign lesion and there will be nothing to worry about!

Citrinetiff, I'm sorry you're doing this!! I am, too. Tomorrow I have a follow-up US (after whole-breast AVBS ultrasound last Friday) and they scheduled a slot to do biopsy. I got the report on the AVBS, and the description of my mass is bad. Of course they'll need to actually do biopsy to tell what it is. They gave it a BIRADS score of 0, incomplete.

Here's hoping we both get good information and good news before the weekend!!

ctmbsikia thank you for your kind words. I have been googling (I know I shouldn't) and I think you are correct that if it is in the other breast, it is probably a new cancer.

Laurencl I am so sorry you are going through this. Please let us know how everything goes. I am sending positive thoughts for a good result.

vlnrph I hope it is a benign lesion! I agree with you that I should ask for a genetic mutation. This is especially true since I have 2 adult daughters. They are already at a higher risk because of me. Thank you for the suggestion.

MountainMia what is going on!? I thought I would have some respite from the fear of a new cancer! What is AVBS? I will be sending you positive thoughts and hoping for a good result. Please keep us posted.

ABVS is Automated Breast Volume Scanner. It's a whole breast ultrasound that is partially automated. Once the tech places it, it runs its own scan. The idea is to get better quality and less tech-dependent imaging, to make the quality of interpretation more consistent and better. I think they ran 3 scans on each breast, with me lying on my back. My breasts are heterogeneously dense, so I pushed for another imaging besides mammogram. And it's good I did, as the mammo didn't show anything on this, and it's not palpable.

I hope you get your biopsy results soon. Please let us know.

KBeee I see that you had cancer twice in the same breast two years apart! How awful for you. Are you okay now? I really hope you are. Did you have genetic testing?

I am debating having a double mastectomy even if this new "thing" is benign. Am I crazy?

I am doing well now, though I live for today and actively check off bucket list items. I am happy to keep adding to and checking off more items for the next 50 years, but I don't want to put off things I really want to do. I am still working as a firefighter/paramedic, but considering retiring in the next year or 2 because I'm getting a bit old for it. I recently helped out for a week on a presidential campaign and as much as I hate politics, when I find someone I like, I think I've found something I can fill some time with doing behind the scenes work. It was fun and it was something new. I had genetic testing. I have a VUS in the CHEK2 gene. My mom has the same one and she had breast CA in 1992, and again in the contralateral breast in 2006. Her dad and grandpa both died of cancer, so I was not surprised with my diagnosis.

You are not crazy at all. My mom wishes she could have had BMX in 1992, but it was not offered then.

Venting for a minute - I'm extremely irritated!!!

My results for my mammogram and u/s on Jan 27th are now posted and the report is soooo scant (djmammo would be VERY disappointed!) and they do not reflect the conversation the Radiologist had with me AT ALL. She stated that the 2 masses "were probably benign" and she "recommended follow-up at 6 months". To which I raised my concerns and history and requested a biopsy. Here is what the report states:

MAMMOGRAM:

ACR A: The breast tissue is almost entirely fatty.

2 faint tiny focal asymmetries in the area of concern in the upper outer right breast

ULTRASOUND:

Targeted sonographic evaluation was performed of the area of concern at 9:00 4 cm from nipple. There is a superficial hypoechoic parallel nodule measuring 3 x 3 mm. Chest 2 there is another 4.7 x 2.9 mm nodule. The appearance was discussed with the patient and her husband.

IMPRESSION:

1. Patient is concerned about the 2 palpable lesions

2. Recommendation: Biopsy using ultrasound guidance for the larger deeper lesion

BI-RADS 4A (Biopsy recommended: low suspicion for malignancy).

At the end of the day, it doesn't change the fact that a biopsy has been performed and I'm waiting for the results now. However, I work in the medical field and it really upsets me that what she initially believed based on the imaging and her discussed with me is not what is now reflected in the medical record. It appears to me that she subjectively changed her initial medical opinion after our conversation, as opposed to evaluating the imaging and reporting her findings in an objective manner. GRRRR.
