Mammogram and US Preliminary Report

Jul 17, 2008 - 4 comments

My PRELIMINARY Report (I stress this because they did by stamping the page) :

Bilateral Diagnostic Mammogram and Right Breast US Dated 7/16/08:

Clinical Histroy of Episodic Bilateral Breast Tenderness with the Patient's Menstrual Cycle.  The patient reports breast pain has decreased since her initial physician visit.

Findings:

Bilaterial mammogram deminstrates extremely dense breast tissue.  There is asymmetrically dense breast tissue in the 12:00 o'clock position of the breast.  No spiculated masses, architectural distortion or clustered pleomorphic microcalcifications are identified.

Sonography of the 12:00 o'clock position of the right breast demonstrates and 8 x 7 x 3 MM cyst and a well circumscribed lobular 12 x 5 x 11 MM solid nodule.  

Final Assessment:

Probably Benign, BI RADS 3.

Recommendation:

Follow-up right sided mammogram and ultrasound in six months.  Asymmetric breast tissue is noted in the 12:00 o'clock position of the right breast.  Sonographically there is a solid nodule which is thought likely to represent a fibroadenoma and a small breast cyst.

I just read the news about your ultrasound and wanted to send you a big smile :) and (((hug))).  What a long week for you...and what a relief...

Just follow up and continue to be your own best advocate (and we know you will be)...

FYI...one of my ultrasounds showed a cyst in a similar position...which I promptly forgot all about, until I lost weight, did a self-exam, felt it and freaked out...called, had an US...it was the same old cyst

Enjoy the weekend...

Thanks Sandy.  Its the nodule that I am worried about.  It is larger than the cyst.  I am calmer today and will see the surgeon my GYN set up for me on the 23rd.  So, you really think this nodule is no big deal?  I surely hope its not.  My main problem is that this is all happening at once.  I am very aware that the breast thing could have been there a while though, so maybe its coincidence.  Again, many thanks and you have a great weekend too!  Hugs to you! ~Kim

BTW all - the final draft was the same as the preliminary.

Hey guys I'm new here so sorry if posted in wrong place.. I have a question need help. I had a mammogram two yrs ago followed by ultrasound which I was told was just a cyst no concern. I had just had a hysterectomy so I let it go. The next mammogram was a year later all I heard was it was fine. This year I get a note saying there's a 9mm circumscribed module on right breast. I have been having pain there. Also breast r dense but had scattered unchanged calcifications. Apparently this was there last yr too. I requested u/s doc says no worries but u/s nurse says she would request removed. My grandmother had breast cancer an mothers had precancerous tumors removed any advice? Im a heavy smoker an have modules on lungs which they also say aren't growing an of no concern. Please give advice
