I have a lump about 1.5 CM in diameter. What is the likelihood of it being breast cancer?

Size doesn't matter,: The lump should be checked by your physician. Ultrasounds, mammograms, and mri's can help to define if it's benign or cancer. A sample of the lump to examine under the microscope would give the final answer.

Cancer (Definition)

Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more

Is.6 cm maglinant breast cancer considered small? Easily treatable?

Good news, but...: A 0.6 cm tumor usually has a very good prognosis once excised, but there are no certainties. I am VERY glad you found it early. Best wishes.

Is chemotherapy required for stage 1A IDC breast cancer, tumor size 1.1 cm, ER & PR positive, HER2 negative, nuclear grade 1. Patient is 42 years old.

Is chemotherapy required for stage 1A IDC breast cancer, tumor size 1.1 cm, ER & PR positive, HER2 negative, nuclear grade 1. Patient is 42 years old.

Borderline call!: Your breast tumor is quite small, so it has >90% odds that it can be safely treated with surgery, without any chemotherapy required. You may ask your doctor for treating you with tamoxifen which is a antihormone type of medication, commonly used as the treatment for tumors that are ER positive. Good luck

Need Oncotype-Dx: While your prognosis is excellent, we know that some women with your stage may benefit from traditional chemotherapy in addition to an aromatase inhibitor. Nowadays, we are moving towards molecular staging over anatomic staging; oncotype-dx is a multi-gene assay that can provide information regarding your probability of recurrence; if it is high, traditional chemo will be recommended.

Multiple pimple different sizes 1-3 CM together on the infra scapula reg. Of patient has metastatic breast cancer, could be related to cancer?

Possibly: Hash the bast and safest thing to do is seek out a board certified dermatologist. These may be simple pimples, a sign of immune changes or others. If possible and they look like a cancer then a simple biopsy would give you all the answers.

Right breast cancer, no lymph node taken out. Had mastectomy, clear margins, 1.2 cm tumor, mitotic rate 1, grade 1, total score 5. Treatment recommend?

Right breast cancer, no lymph node taken out. Had mastectomy, clear margins, 1.2 cm tumor, mitotic rate 1, grade 1, total score 5. Treatment recommend?

Watch: If mastectomy performed, no RT needed. The chance of nodal involvement appearing later is a possibility. It seems when tumor spreads to lymph nodes, the disease remains in the lymph node chain and will not metastasize to other organs such as lung, liver, or bone. When nodes are left to expand, they extend to level 3 nodes, then eventually impinge on axillary vein, a reason for resection.

I have breast cancer tumor. Went from 3cm to 5 CM after biopsy but stable since. If outer part is liquid, can it be drained by needle prior to surgery?

I have breast cancer tumor. Went from 3cm to 5 CM after biopsy but stable since. If outer part is liquid, can it be drained by needle prior to surgery?

Drainage unnecessary: The size of the tumor does not include any bleeding from the biopsy. Therefore, if it was 3 cm before the biopsy (&the biopsy was recent), the tumor is still 3cm. You need not worry about this fluid and may proceed with your definitive surgery. I hope all goes well.

2.8 cm irregular cyst found on right ovary, had ca125 test. I'm 38 no kids, on BC for 15 mth, family hist. Of breast cancer (mom) could it be cancer?

Most likely not: Most Ovarian cyst are benign the more simple the cyst the higher the chance of being benign. The more complex the cyst. Specially if there is solid component with it the more we start had to rule out cancer. follow your GYN instruction

Breast cancer after miscarriage? 2.5mth healthy pregnancy-miscarriage.2 wks later. 2.5.cm lump-biopsy-invasive dcis. Confused info from all dr's

I am assuming: The question is whether the cancer had caused, or indirectly affected the viability of, the embryo/fetus. I do not think any Doctor or scientist can tell you for sure. There is a direct correlation between cancer and blood clotting ability, i.e. cancer increases the risk that venous blood clots will occur. And there is also a direct correlation between increased clotting and miscarriages.

How can one reduce the chance of getting breast cancer?

How can one reduce the chance of getting breast cancer?

Healthy weight: We are not able to control most risk factors for breast cancer, such as being female, aging, and family history. We can control our weight, as obesity is linked to an increased risk of breast cancer. Limit your alcohol intake, have babies, breast feed, and increase your physical activity. In addition we can perform routine screening. Early detection leads to the best chance of a cure.

How/why can breast cancer cause one breast to sag and the other to not?

How/why can breast cancer cause one breast to sag and the other to not?

Unrelated: In a 33 yo female the composition of the breast is mostly glandular and ductal so that mammo shows the breast to be composed primarily of firm tissue which doesn't tend to sag. As one gets older, much of the breast tissue is replaced by fat which has the potential of causing loss of conformity and is one of the factors leading to a sagging breast which is found in your case.

What are my chances of getting breast cancer if no one in my family has it?

What are my chances of getting breast cancer if no one in my family has it?

Can estimate but. ..: The gail model which is available on the nci website is a good way to assess "relative" risk but will not tell you if someone is going to get breast cancer. The majority of patients diagnosed don't have a family history. The number one risk factor is being female and having breast tissue. This is the reason for population screening via bse, cbe, & mammography.
