Djmammo, thank you so much for taking the time to review this report.. It means everything to me. You are making such a difference here on this forum for people. My results are as followed:
Technique: digital mammo diagnostic bilateral was performed. Targeting bilateral US was also performed.
Comparison: this is a baseline exam.
Findings: the breasts are heterogeneously dense, which may obscure small masses.
LEFT Mammo diagnostic bilateral: there is subcentimeter asymmetry seen in the lower central region of the left breast. No suspicious calcifications.
LEFT Breast US: US was performed for further evaluation of the imaging and reported clinical findings. Between 2:00 and 4:00, in the region of the reported palpable abnormality several cysts are seen with the largest measuring 8mm. At 5:30 3cm from the areolar margin there is a 5x7x10mm microlobulated hypoechoic mass which is clearly not seen on mammo images. In the area of the mammo asymmetry at 6:00 posteriorly there is no suspicious sonographic finding.
RIGHT mammo diagnostic bilateral. No suspicious mass, suspicious calcifications or other abnormality.
RIGHT US breast limited: targeted US of the breast was performed for further evaluation of the palpable mass identified on clinical breast exam. At 9:00 4-5 cm from nipple there is normal tissue planes without cyst or solid mass. However, at 9:30 9cm from the areolar margin there is a 3x5x7 mm lymph node with a thickened vascular cortex.
Impression: LEFT breast assessment suspicious biopsy recommended. 1. Indererminate hypoechoic mass at 5:00 identified on US should have US guided core biopsy recommended. 2. Mammographic asymmetry in the lower central breast which does not appear to correspond to the sonographic finding. No definet sonographic correlate os identified. If biopsy is benign follow up in 6mo is recommended. If biopsy malignant enhanced mri recommended.
RIGHT breast assessment: suspicious. Biopsy recommended. 1. Abnormal lymph node in the far lateral breast at 9:00. US guided FNA recommended. 2. No descrete sonographic finding in the reported area of palpable abnormality detected on clinical breast exam.
Well, there it is.. So gyn felt a lump on both breasts thats why i had the mammo and US. I cant feel anything because it feels like ribs under the tissue of both breasts. I am a nurse on a critical care floor so i care for patients who have had breast reconstruction with free flap and im scared. My grandmother died from unknown breast cancer and a few members of my family had BC as well.
Im worried about that enlarged lymph node on my right breast. Im not sick i havent been sick so that has me worried. But i dont know alot about cancer. I see the repair of cancer not the before and after. So can cancer from one breast spread to a lymph node on the other? The mass in left breast described microlobulated hypoechoic isnt reassuring especially when searching the web.
Any thoughts would be helpful. Biopsy and fna is scheduled 10/23. As of now gyn says its going to be fine.. I know this report doesnt feel fine. Id rather know whats happening?
Thanks again for everything...
