I had my usual Mammogram last week.
Called back for a Compression Mammo and UltraSound on Wednesday morning. Doctor called today with results.
I have a family history of breast cancer - my Mother.
They have been watching an area ever since I turned 40 - I am 47 now. The same thing is showing up but it has been getting larger. UltraSound showed cysts in this area but it is complex because it is showing Liquids and Solids.
Lesions do not look normal and they cannot say that it's not cancer. If it isn't cancer now they said this type of tissue could become cancer. Area is 3.4 CM.
Option 1 - Biopsy but 50% chance even a biopsy will come back inconclusive [that is what happened with my Mom's]. If it is negative - watch it every 3-6 months.
Option 2 - Lumpectomy to remove the entire suspected area. Doctor is highly suggesting Option 2 since I have a family history. The tissue that is removed would be sent for a biopsy. He has recommended a breast surgeon.
Ofcourse my head is just spinning right now.
