My wife (29 years old) had a lump and was told it was a water cyst 6 months ago, but it has slightly gotten bigger (6 cm) . They did a needle biopsy and said it was a complex cyst, as there was a water bubble with a clot in the centre. they could not work out what it was and said it could be benign or not and required a mammogram. They informed us it is a Borderline Phyllode tumour and due to the size it would need a masectomy , just confused at the moment,can easily be mixed up with fibrosoama so would it be better to get a sugical biospy done? and as one of your replies (Aug16 suggests), these tumours only require a wide excisionas they are not multicentric. Anyhelp from anyone would be very helpful as were are all very stressed. get back to me via email ***@**** England UK
My wife and I are very interested in your posts on Phyllodes tumor surgical protocols ... worried about margins her doctor used. Is there a way we could contact you to discuss or email?
