Yes...I met Dr. Mandar Nadkarni Breast oncologist at KDAMBANI ... one the leading hospitals in the City of Mumbai India;....he examined me said nothing was wrong except the small lesion in the breast which he said was too tiny for needle biopsy. Advised me to get again a mammogram done after three months and come back to him. He also said it is misnomer to think that all those whose mothers had breast cancer should necessarily get it.
Thanks once again.
Sorry---I do see where you said you were 48. Sometimes with so many "conversations" going on with so many women, I forget who said what when! (That's a sign of MY age, I guess!)
I hope you're appointment goes well and you get all the answers you need and come away with peace of mind.
All the best,
Thanks very much....as earlier informed I am 48 years. Anyway I have an appointment tomorrow with Oncologist......and shall get back to you.
Thanks once again for your informative and reassuring comments.
BIRAD 3 means the lesion is has a greater than 98% chance of being benign and follow up in six months is recommended to make sure there are no changes. It sounds like the sonography showed it wasn't a cyst, but a highly probable benign solid mass. You don't give your age but these types of lesions are very common, especially in younger women.Follow up as recommended and you should be fine, but see your doctor if you still have any questions or concerns.
Wishing you well,
Thanks very much for your informatvie comments...besides mammo. a sonography too was done....that propbably is sonomammography; .the report says and I quote
"possibly represents fibroodenema...BIRAD grade III (probably benign)"
I'm sorry to hear about your Mom's cancer. It does put you at higher risk as does geting older, but many women with family history of cancer never get it and women with no family history can get BC. You should just continue with diligent screening. If the mammo shows no abnormality, then that's good. Was your original post about an ultrasound-I'm not familiar with the term "sonomammography"? Other than telling you there was a hypoechoic lesion, what else did they say? Did they tell you it was probably a cyst? What was your BIRADS on the mammo? What was recommended? I still think you need to follow up with your doctor and ask all the questions you have. Wish I could be more help, but I'm not sure what you're asking.
Thanks for ur comments...I am 48 years age and mammography reveals no abnormality but mom had breast cancer.
any comments welcome.
This just means there's a small mass or lump that may or may not need additonal investigation.The 2:00 position is where the lesion is if you look at the breast like the face of a clock.
Often the radiologist will recommend additional views of the lesion. Sometimes it's clear from the mammo that this is a benign lesion and a repeat mammo in six months is recommended. Occasionally, if the radiologist is unsure, or the mammo isn't clear, then biopsy will be recommended. Please don't worry too much because statistically most breast lesions or lumps are benign. You don't give your age but in young women, most lumps are benign.The only way to be 100% sure is with a biopsy. A BIRADS score will be given and the recommendations are usually based on this. Please follow up with your doctor and ask what these findings mean and what is recommended at this point.
Take good care of yourself and wishing you all thh best,
