Hi ladies! I haven't been out here for a while. The boards were a lifesaver for me in 2007 when I had a ductal excision while stationed overseas. Since then, I've had many different benign things happening and have popped in and out of this site for advice from you fabulous ladies. I started the formerly popular thread "Members of the 6 Month Watchful Waiting Club Unite" :-)
I am high risk (haven't had the BRCA yet, but many female family members with BC), so have a mammo and exam in May and an MRI w/ contrast in November to keep an eye on things, small isolated calcs. etc.
This time around there was good news - 2 prior foci of enhancements (1 in each breast) have "resolved" - which means my dense breasts and other MRI anomalies showed something which wasn't there, and the technology is likely improving. I never really obsessed over these, so glad I didn't! Hope this is something positive for those of you with this issue.
This time, the report said something new - "There is enhancing focus in the skin of the right breast, lower outer quadrant and another in the skin of the right breast, upper inner quadrant. There is no abnormal enhancing mass or architectural enhancement to suggest malignancy. Recommend clinical correlation and direct visualization."
I've been doing a little reading about this, possibly it's a thickening in the skin or the dermis, or sometimes seen as a pre-curser to IBC? Again, I'm not freaking out seeing how I've had busy breasts for 13 years now. But just curious. Will chat with my doc tomorrow and see what she says.
Thanks for any info! Hope you're all doing well during these crazy times.
