Glad I found this place. I am 47 and 2 young kids and I am so scared now.
2018 I went for my screening mamo and called back for diag mamo and was recommended biopsy but was clearly told that >95% is benign and it was ALH.
I then consulted two breast surgeons both said just watching which I did.
2019 screening mamo was fine.
This year 2020 June mamo they found new calcifications then I was called back for diag mamo right after. The report says as follows
The right breast is extremely dense, which lowers the sensitivity of
mammography. There is a 7 mm new group of coarse heterogeneous
calcifications in the right upper likely outer posterior breast. The X
biopsy clip marking the previous biopsy site which showed ALH is anterior
and inferior to these calcifications. There are no suspicious masses or
areas of architectural distortion.
I took the report and films to another breast center and came back slightly different report but seems even worse.
There are linearly distributed pleomorphic calcifications in the central posterior right
breast posterosuperiorly adjacent to the X-shaped clip, measuring approximately 1.4 cm in
maximum AP extension.
IMPRESSION: Suspicious calcifications in the central upper posterior right breast adjacent
to the X-shaped clip. Stereotactically guided biopsy of the right breast is recommended.
BIRADS: 4 - Suspicious Abnormality.
I am now waiting for my biopsy which is on 7/10
I am so worried. I am prepared for the worst IDC. I just want to know how big chance is that it invades to the lymph nodes already. Since my breasts are very densed that I am concerned that the cancer might be there for some time already.
