I have no history of breast cancer but went to the doctor for a rash on my breast. I received antibiotics for 10 days but that made no difference. I then received anti fungal with a steroid and that's still not making a difference. Since I just turned 40 the doctor had me have a mammogram as well. That came back abnormal so I had a diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound and they recommended a cyst aspiration and abiopsy(unrelated to the rash). I had a biopsy on Wednesday and received the results through MyChart but haven't received a call from the doctor and guessing I won't until Monday. I'm hoping someone could help translate what the results mean. I read the rules of posting and think this is ok but if not I apologize.

The summary of the report says “ The pathology has returned as a complex radial sclerosing lesion, concordant with the imaging findings. Surgical consultation is recommended with consideration given to excision.“

I can paste the full report if that's helpful.

just wanted to provide an update. The doctor called and explained that while the complex radial sclerosing lesion is benign they generally recommend surgery to remove it since sometimes it can hide a malignancy. I have a surgery consult on the 20th. They will also reevaluate the rash on my breast at the same time
