found out I have a benign calcified axillary lymph node from ultra sound and mammagram.I was wondering if I should do any follow up such as a biopsy?
It depends.: Dense calcifications are usually benign. Certain patterns of node calcification can be seen in metastatic breast cancer, thyroid or ovarian cancer. Coarse intranodal calcifications suggest benign fat necrosis or granulomatous disease. If your calcifications are typically benign, you probably don't need any follow up. Talk to your doc about the results. ...Read more

Yes: I am assuming you are feeling well. This is most likely due to a minor skin problem on your arm or hand, past or present. At your age, it is very likely that this will simply be a big lymph node. The chance of Hodgkin's / malignant lymphoma is quite small, and of some other illness even less. The decision to biopsy reflects only the reasonable concern that treatable disease might be found early. ...Read more
Hard fixed lymph node confirmed by ultrasound, no pain, been there for a month, gp has me waiting 3 months then biopsy, could this be just normal?
