The breast cancer specialist and her PA both agree it's probably cancer, about 90% sure. Will get scheduled for a mammogram and biopsy, ASAP. Not smooth, like my gyn/onc told me, but irregular, vertical, 1/2", but movable. No indications in lymph nodes, but will check those as well. I'm still holding good thoughts that the 10% NO CANCER is going to win out!
My gynecologic/oncologist says it is roundish, smooth, movable. He wants me to have a stereotatic biopsy. Will be calling tomorrow to try to set up an appointment. And because I like to be 'informed' and 'prepared' I looked up the procedure on youtube. Seems pretty straight forward, but I'd love to hear your thoughts on this - ease of the procedure, pain/discomfort, etc.
Many thanks to all of you!
Hello, everyone. I'm from the Ovarian Cancer discussion board. DX in 2000, recurrance in 2006. NED as of last week's CT scan - YAY! However, there is a notation on the findings that reads as follows" mass in right breast, 10 o'clock position, 11 mm, posterior 1/3. I will be seeing my gynecologic/oncologist on Wednesday for my OVCA follow-up. I know he will order a mammogram (last one in April 2012).
Can anyone offer some advice/comfort? I have been genetically tested and am NOT positive for BRCA. I am in general good health, and I did detect a small lump in that breast myself last week. I've researched a little, and as you can imagine it opens up a lot of questions and concerns. The lump I'm feeling is not in the 10 o-clock position, so I'm not sure what I'm feeling.
I know that no one can say anything for sure, but anything you can offer will be greatly appreciated.
My thoughts and prayers to all of you!
