Quick background. I have had two steorotypic biopsies. Both came back benign, although the second one showed Atypia. Had surgery last year to remove abnormal cells and currently taking Tamoxifen. Today went in for a nine month follow-up mammogran and mri. Radiologist saw something on the mammogram and than ordered an ultrasound. While the technician was performing the ultrasound, she remarked about seeing something and wanted to know if I opted not to have it removed. Needless to say, she put me in a panic. Could it have been scar tissue that she was referring to?
I just turned 51. When I was around 10 I had been biten by a horse in my right breast. My family doctor was always aware of the feel of it in my breast as I grew up. I just had my first mamograhm this week and did mention it to the radiologist who did the mamograghm. Anyway today got a call they want me to go back because she said they did see something and just want to make sure it is scar tissue. She said as they have no other film to compare it to. She said the radiologist will look at it right away and if they are still not sure I'd have an ultrasound. Can scar tissue apprear like breast cancer?
