Hello everyone. I'm a mother of 3 kids i breastfed all of them. 7 month ago i noticed some change on my right nipple but i thought it's hormones then a month after I found blood on shirt from the same nipple. Went to the surgeon who did mammogram and found dialated ducts then ultrasound then ductogram then ultrasound again then MRI found a lump under the nipple. Then guided biopsy results they are not sure if it's b9 or cancerous!!!!! With birad 4 . The doctor wants to do lumpectomy to be in the safe side. Seeked a second opinion the don't recommend the surgery the want me to wait 6 month. Not sure if anyone traveled this exosting journey to share with me thier experience. Thanks.

Hi Omrawan and so sorry you're struggling with this. If the biopsy is unclear, you can ask the pathology department at a second hospital to take a look at it; I can't tell if you've done that or not. But unless your report mentioned a radial scar, the normal course for your situation would be to wait six months then do a follow-up.

If you have the language from the MRI or biopsy you can post them here and someone smarter than me can give them a read.
