my ultrasound showed a small hypoechoic lesion with internal echogenicity. no suspicious enhancement on mri. but we did not know then that i was brca2+. I have heard they can appear benign but really be malignant. Plan to have pbm next month-does this change anything? I would really like to know now if it is benign, but just had biopsy on other breast and mast. as soon as can be done. for peace of mind, would like to know. Would mri be accurate for my case?
Hi. Since you plan to have bilateral mastectomy next month, having a biopsy of that hypoechoic lesion done now would be superfluous. You can have your breasts examined thoroughly by the pathologist for any malignant lesions once they have been removed. You always have a choice to have the biopsy done for your peace of mind, but it's not absolutely necessary.
