Thanks for all your responses
I finally received the final report from my spot compression test which said that there were a group of slightly heterogeneous and pleomorphic calcifications in the upper lateral breast and a second group of more punctate diffuse calcifications in the lower medial breast. In light of the heterogenous appearance of the upper outer calcifications, further evaluation of core biopsy is recommended. The impression was Left Breast: Suspicious/Category 4A.
But when I went for my biopsy today, the radiologist doing the needle wire insertion wnet ahead and did it then said she thought I should have the lower breast marked and took it out and marked the lower breast. My surgeon removed the tissue from the lower breast. (I had it surgically removed)
#1 what is Suspicious/Category 4A?
#2 should I be worried about them excising the lower instead of the upper as suggested by the other radiologist?
#3 what does heterogenous and pleomorphic mean? what about punctate and diffuse?
I'm really concerned about this mix up. Does this happen often? (They say it was mis-marked-upper when it should have been lower)?
Thanks for your help
I hope I haven't been too confusing...I'm really stressed
