vascular mass?
My mother in law was told she has a mass in her breast of signifacant size and with about 3 veins carrying blood through it. Is a larger vascular tumor more likely to be malignant, statistically speaking? She will be going through more tests next week.

Hi.


What kind of imaging was done?

Was a mammogram done or an ultrasound? What were the results?

A tumor may be vascular in origin such as angiomas but some masses are highly vascularized and may warrant further investigation.Although vascularity may make one suspect a malignancy , a scan will not give us a definite diagnosis.A biopsy is usually requested to diagnose a mass in the body.

Has a biopsy been done ?

Just continue reassuring your mom and continue ff up with your physician.

Keep in touch.
