I recently had a mammogram done. One statement on the mammogram stated, There is a left breast upper outer quadrant intramammary lymph node appreciated. No suggestions were made to me to get this checked out. Do you think it would be necessary to have it checked out or that the statement is just there to compare to the next mammogram or if I feel any lumps. Thank you.
Dear Little Doris: It is not uncommon to have a lymph node within the breast tissue. Likely, this is just part of describing the results of the mammogram for future comparison if it appeared normal in size and structure.
