today i recieved the report which i realy need to understand please:
the report says : there is focal asymmetry in both breast which effaced on spot compression views.
showed hypoechoicnodules in the breast bilaterally>
the ones in the right had irregular outlines and measure from 0.5 to 0.8 at 3 o,clock position
Birads is a standard way of reporting mammograms.
Birads 4 indicates a suspicious abnormality in the breast and that a biopsy should be considered.
Your report showed some focal asymmetry, which could represent an island of normal breast tissue. The hypoechoic nodules need further evaluation. Please discuss with your doctor about a biopsy appointment.
What symptoms do you have? Is the chromosome 4 monosomy symptomatic?
All the very best to you!
