5mm Mass Diagnosed by Cnb as ADH and sent to BS. Ordered mri which led back to another cnb which got the whole thing out...,waiting on that now. Radiologist said it’s very likely to be cancer with ultrasound, mri and adh findings. Is it necessarily so?

Have no one to tell me what to expect but just feeling a lot of anxiety bc I have other issues unrelated (headaches, hip pain) that I am now wondering if related and doing catastrophic thinking.

Reading boards on ADH, signatures look like it all came back as cancer after lumpectomy Just really nervous

Thank you!

No, In general, about 20% of the time a finding of ADH on needle biopsy is upgraded to DCIS or invasive cancer at excision.
