I am 43 years old. I am living in the UK and receiving National Health Service (NHS) treatment. I posted in early February after I had been for a mammogram and ultrasound for a large lump in right breast. I had numerous views taken at the time including magnification. I was told that I had several large cysts and a possible fibroadenoma. Calcifications were also present. As I had very little knowledge at the time, I did not even ask if they were macro or micro. I did inform the medical staff that one of my young sons had jumped from the back of the sofa onto my breast. The consultant stated that my breasts were ageing, but he wanted to see me for review in three months time, although it would probably take longer for the appointment to come though. As I was very nervous at the time, I didn’t ask any questions.
I am going to see him for a review appointment this Thursday. I was just wondering if you think it would be appropriate to ask for a biopsy. I believe it is fat necrosis, as I only noticed the lump after my son jumped on me. As it is such a large lump, I would be keen to avoid surgery and quite happy to leave it, if it fat necrosis.
I would appreciate your comments
Kind regards & thanks
