Intramammary Lymph Node Question

I just recently had a mammogram done....I am 40. They had to call me back to re-do the test because there was something that looked suspicious. It turned out to be a "probable" 6mm intramammary lymph in the upper outer quadrant of my right breast. The report said "probably" and that work kind of worries me. They told me to come back in a year. Wouldn't an ultrasound also be recommended since the report didn't sound 100% sure? I'm a little worried and confused. Please provide some information if anyone is familiar with this. Thans

Re: Intramammary Lymph Node Question

Speak with your doctor and explain that you are not comfortable with the term "Probable" and that you would like a more conclusive result. Request either a repeat mammo in 3-6 months or request that they perform a Breast MRI to double check this area of concern.

I hope this helps.

Re: Intramammary Lymph Node Question

Thanks for the reply. I'll give my doctor a call after Thanksgiving. Are you familiar with "Intrammamary Lymph nodes"? I do not know much about them and not sure about what the normal size of the lymph node SHOULD be. Mine is 6mm. I wish I knew a little more about this and how common it is to find them on a mammogram.
