I am going for biopsy on Monday and I have been really trying to keep myself occupied with little things I enjoy. But, I am still not able to sleep at all and my feelings are all over the place. Sometimes I feel I am worrying unnecessarily and I can handle the biopsy and any result, but sometimes I am terrified. Seeing so many of you brave women here gives me strength and hope. I am just putting my feelings out here as I know everyone here have gone through these phases and can relate.

I was only told to have something(food) before coming to the appointment as it might take up to 2 hrs even though the actual procedure is 20 to 30 mins. I am going in for Mammographically guided core biopsy around 1 p.m. After reading couple for threads, wanted to know if I should take Tylenol or Aleve before the appointment.

I have my posted my results in another thread, but here it is again. My first ever mammogram was July 2020 and there were benign appearing classification in the LEFT breast and scattered fibro glandular density on both breasts BI-RAIDS 2 benign

Study Result Impression from FEB 2022

1. Single view lateral right breast indeterminate asymmetry with no orthogonal view or clear sonographic correlate. Further evaluation with stereotactic core biopsy recommended.

2. On ultrasound, there is a 9:00 right breast hypoechoic or cystic indeterminate mass without a clear mammographic correlate. At the juncture, six-month follow-up with right breast ultrasound is recommended. There are also other hypoechoic or cystic 9:00 smaller masses that could be followed.

BI-RADS: 4 - Suspicious (4A-Low Suspicion for Malignancy)

FINDINGS:

DENSITY: Breast Density Category B: The breasts have scattered areas of fibroglandular density.

On additional images including tomography, 6 mm asymmetry in the outer right breast on the CC view persisted with no corresponding finding in the lateral projections.

Sonographic evaluation of central lateral and inferior outer right breast was performed by the technologist and revealed a 5 mm nonshadowing hypoechoic or cystic mass at 9:00, 6 cm from the nipple that after obtaining post BB films appears more laterally located than the asymmetry on the CC view. In addition, also at 9:00 there is a flattened benign appearing 5 mm cyst plus a 3 mm probably complicated cyst both 6 cm from the nipple.

Breast physical examination was not performed.

Thank you Mods, I really appreciate all the positive vibes and thoughtful messages. "Benign Breast Conditions" was the first place I looked to learn more right after I got the report and also posted my results there to get some thoughts on it.

How wonderful to hear the words Benign!!!! Last July i had a hope mine would come back that way, and i really let go of the results and went about my business. Results? Cancer. Still i was comforted by the stage and the PA who referred me to the City of Hope. Just had a left mastectomy's Feb 9th and the right breast is out May 31st. BRCA2.

What i know is this forum lets us share and support one another. Anything after benign is managemabel. Ask questions, do the test, and become confident you can walk through it with dignity and grace.
