Dear pretigem, Yes there is a chance this could be benign. Not until results come back with the pathologic findings would we be able to comment on the stage. However, with you having been closely followed, we would be hopeful that this is an early finding if not something benign.
Hi i had a stereotactic biopsy this morning and was wondering if after procedure was over if its normal that the doctor inserted a metal chip for future mammograms?
I had a stereotactic biopsy on 3 days ago, and the results were unconclusive. My GYN called and said they reccommended surgery. I called back to the clinic where the stereotactic was performed and the Dr there said they could do a ultrasound guided (I not quite sure what) so that I dont have to go through surgery, or a lumpectomy. I have read so much concerning this I just don't know what to do. Does anyone know if the surgery would be better for me or the ultra sound.....thing. I am told I have a fibroadenoma, and they just didn't quite get it all the first round. I also had one last year at it was fine. Any info would be great....
There is a book out called The Breast Cancer Prevention Diet,may not really help,but it is a very healthy diet. I go for a biopsy in Sept for microcalcifications,I'm terrified! Reading at this and other websites has helped me make informed decisions on my health.
I had a hard time making up my mind about stero. needle biopsy or surg., because I heard it was painful. After talking to a surgeon and being told he probably, wouldn't get all the calci. in the biopsy I decided to go with the core. I was so glad I did. It was painless. However, I have now had 2 lumpectomies since June and possibly looking at a 3rd.
Hi - under my old screen name Pretigem i wrote the first post about Indeterminate microcalcification of right breast and I did go and have stereotactc biopsy - the whole procedure ran very smooth - couldnt be happier and would recommend that over being in hospital, and put under anesthesia. I know its not possible in every case to have it, but if you could, it does save a lot of stress as compared to going in hospital. Although i was a wreck for a week - thank God it turned out to be benign. Good luck to all of you and God Bless!
