Re: Tiny clusters of micro punctate calcifications how quickly can they change
Thank you so much for your e-mail. My mom wanted me to have the biopsy done last year, but the Dr. reading my films had explained to me, that although the tiny micro clusters are suspicious, and a 50/50 chance that this would be malignant he felt it would be in my best interest to not put me through a very painful procedure (needle biopsy) when there is a good chance that they may not be able to get to the clusters to sample. I think he said that because my boobs are very small. The one thing that sticks in my head that he had said to me, which triggered me posting the question, will the clusters eventually change was that he said, If the time comes for a biopsy, and it is confirmed to be early stages of breast cancer, he said, It will be in the early stages that you will be just getting out of the gate". My immediate thought was, "I dont even want to get to the gate, never mind heading out. I did get a second opinion to ease my moms worries. A what was saposed to be a quick second opinion turned into this Dr. thinking that it was ok to wait 6 months to repeat the films, however he thought I could have Pagetts disease, which is another form of breast cancer. He insisted on a biopsy in the office before I left that day. That biopsy came back negative. Do you mind if I ask you what byraids they catorgorized your films? 0-5 Mine was a 3- suspicious probably benign, and to be watched closely. Does any of this sound familiar? I'm glad that that they caught yours early and you are doing well. Thank you again for your support, I really do appreciate your support.
