Right Side Mammogram
History: History of left mastectomy last year for breast Ca. Follow up
Report: A comparison was made with the previous right side mammogram of 2006.
There is no significant interval change when compared with the previous examination. Multiple small (subcentimetre) nodes are now seen in the right axilla. Overall there are no features to suggest malignancy.
Q. Are they small cancer cells?
The multiple small subcentimeter nodes found in your mammogram are not cancer cells. Only biopsy can detect cancer cells.
There are certain mammographic features that are suggestive of malignancy. An example would be architectural distortion.
Your recent mammogram did not find any features suggestive of malignancy.
You should, however, regularly follow-up with your oncologist.
