The Radiologist Category of BiRAD 5 is an indication what the Radiologist saw is more than likely Cancer.

Now don’t freak out. That Score is an OPINION to start with. It has to be confirmed by other Tests. Not having any Family History is meaning less and less to me every single day. It doesn’t mean much.

There are other tests to be done. If you have a small mass that is rounded or has regular edges it’s usually benign. If your mass is an “architectural distortion” there’s reason to think it’s Cancer.

Did you talk With your Radiologist? Or PCP? They will explained it all

Your fear is normal and expected. Do something good for all of you tonight and try to make it fun.

If your worst fear is realized, there will be plenty of time for grief. Love yourself and your Family. All are precious.

Prayers for the very best outcome! And 2.7 cm is about an inch. No Cancer is “normal.” A 1 inch tumor is freaking huge if it’s mine! :)
