Category B On A Breast Mamo
Lymph node showed up on 3 d mammogram, breast is larger then the other one, should I ask for a breast biopsy?
Multiple possible: Hi. If you have a genetic risk for breast cancer (e.g., one of the BRCA gene mutations, and other genes too), multifocal breast cancer is more likely than in sporadic cases of breast cancer. Overall, multifocal breast cancer at the time of diagnosis is uncommon. Given your age of 25, I would lean heavily toward suspecting a genetic form of breast cancer. Evaluate ALL breast lumps. Good luck! ...Read more

Pregnant- sent for breast us of thick tissue. diangosis fibrocystic. Breast surgeon agreed at her exam. How confident this is not cancer vs fibrocystic?
Breast lumps/preg: Pregnancy is a confounding factor when dealing with different medical diagnoses. Hormonal shifts of pregnancy will affect the breast and cause different symptoms (changes in exam /pain). Fibrocystic disease is very common among young women, but all abnormalities need to be followed up on. Whether its repeat exams, u/s, diagnostic tests that are safer in the latter stages- follow up is the key. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My mother had lobular breast cancer at 53. Does this mean ill get it? Is the lobular variety more likely genetic? I'm brca negative.
Probably not, no: The lobular variety has similar genetic risk as other varieties. Your mother having breast cancer does mean you have greater than average risk but it is still much more likely that you won't get it than you will. Many genes besides BRCA affect risk, but diet and lifestyle still has a greater influence on risk than genetics. See http://tinyurl.com/zwgadg2 and http://tinyurl.com/zg66ou7 ...Read more

Reasonable.: It is certainly understandable for patients to have a certain amount of doubt when it comes to breast lumps. That is why is is also certainly reasonable to seek a second opinion. Hopefully you will be a bit more settled with the diagnosis. ...Read more
Generally: short interval follow up is the suggested management for an average risk patient with BIRADS 3 lesions, which have less than 2% chance of malignancy based on imaging features. In a high risk patient, however, it would not be inappropriate to perform a needle biopsy of a BIRADS 3 lesion in order to establish a definitive diagnosis without having to wait. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm 77, a male, diagnosed with gynecomastia, (non-cancerous, tender lump size of walnut under one nipple). Doctor wants to start tamoxifen. Is this necessary?
Autonomy rules: If you are very sure this isn't male breast cancer (i'm going to assume it was biopsied), and it doesn't bug you, you're within your rights to have it left alone. You can also get with a surgeon and have the thing out in the office. Truth be told, i'm wondering whether communications may have broken with with your own physician & if it's not time just this once for a 2nd opinon just for this reasn. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Mother had breast cancer at 54 and her cousin had it at 48.BRCA negative and breast cancer panel negative (breastnext).How likely is it I'll get it?
High Risk: Although genetic testing was negative, you are still at elevated risk. Other factors could help determine statistical risk, but, not as accurate in a 25 yo. I would recommend establishing a relationship w OBGYN +/- a high risk breast program. A yearly breast exam is important. A baseline mammogram at 35 yr and yearly mammograms from age 40 yr would be appropriate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
