I had a mammogram 2/8/2017 that was normal with a Bi-Rad of 1. This year, I had a mammogram on 2/14/18 and I received a call the next day telling me that I needed to come in for another mammogram. I went in on 2/16/18 and had the further testing done and I was told that they had found microcalcifications that were suspicious for malignancy and that my mammogram was a rated a Bi-Rad 4 and that I needed to schedule a stereotactic biopsy. This was performed on 2/22/18. The doctor that did the biopsy told me that she ended up taking 2 biopsies because she wasn't sure if there was enough microcalcifications in the piece she obtained for an accurate biopsy. I have now received my pathology report and I am unsure if I should get a 2nd opinion. My pathology report stated:
LEFT BREAST, RETROAREOLAR, STEREOTACTIC HOLOGIC CORE NEEDLE BIOPSIES. BENIGN BREAST AND LACTIFEROUS DUCT TISSUE WITH FOCAL PAPILLOMATOSIS. RARE INTRACELLULAR REFRACTILE MATERIAL PRESENT IN THE LUMEN. (DISCRETE MICROCALCIFICATIONS NOT IDENTIFIED.)
I am concerned that the microcalcifications were not identified and that these microcalcifications were not on my mammogram a year ago. I do get mammograms regularly because I have had fibrocystic changes and my breast density is rated a 3.
