Hi Doctors, I had a lumpectomy a couple months ago for high grade DCIS, I'm about to finish radiation. I had an MRI after diagnosis and before surgery.
IMPRESSION: Corresponding to the biopsy-proven cancer in the upper inner quadrant of the left breast there is on MRI a bi-lobed malignant enhancing mass with maximum craniocaudal dimension of 9mm.
Extensive background enhancement in both breasts. Enhancement in numerous foci. these measured 4mm or less in size. Difficult to characterize these foci further. Enhancement may be related to benign process however foci of DCIS cannot be ruled out completely. On mammography numerous calcifications are present throughout both breasts.
I'm scheduled to get a follow-up MRI in March to look for stability or change.
How worried should I be?
Thank you. Carol
