Chances Of Developing Breast Cancer Ovarian Same Time
Breast cancer results when glandular cells lining the milk ducts and lobules of the human breast begin to grow in an unregulated manner. The growth occurs initially inside the ducts but eventually breaks outside into the breast tissue and ultimately spreads both to the lymph nodes in the armpit and via the bloodstream to other parts of the body. Because of the promoting affect of estrogen almost all breast cancer occurs in women and is a rarity in men. The unregulated growth is due to both inherited and acquired genetic defects. It is the most common malignancy in women but it often curable if found early and treated effectively with surgery, hormonal therapy, chemotherapy and targeted therapy, or a combination thereof. Early detection before the malignancy becomes large enough to be felt depends on mammography/sonography and MRI imaging of the breast ...Read more
Yes: There are two ways this can happen: 1. She had breast cancer with "drop metastases", meaning spread of breast cancer to the ovaries. This can happen with breast cancers that have the estrogen receptor. 2. She had both breast and ovarian cancer at the same time, mostly likely associated with a brca mutation. With this history, you may benefit from genetic counseling and/or testing. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Hello, : Hello, it is difficult to answer this question specifically for you without being able to see the images. In general, a radiologist, a physician that looks at medical images, will assess the shape, size, margins and density of a mass to determine the chance that it might be cancer. The radiologist may use mammograms and ultrasound images to gather this information. Radiologists will recommend a biopsy for any abnormality that has a chance of being cancer that is 2% or more. "pointy edges" will raise the chance to greater than 2%. Therefore, i would follow the recommendation for biopsy. The chance that this particular finding is cancer also depends on your age, personal history and family history. From your story i think that the most important factor is the family history. Having breast and ovarian cancer in your family will raise your personal risk. The risk is highest if it was a first-degree relative (sister or mother) that had breast or ovarian cancer. If it was grandmother or distant cousin, the risk for you is not as high. If it was mother or sister or both, this might be a sign that your family has a gene that raises the risk of some kinds of cancer. If so, i would recommend that you all talk to a medical provider that performs genetic counseling. This can help you decide if you want to make a special effort to reduce your risk or start special screening tests to help detect cancer early if it happens. I see that you posted this question 28 days ago. I see that the biopsy likely has already happened and that you have the result. I hope that it was benign. If not, then i hope that you know that we have great treatments for breast cancer and most women are survivors. I will be thinking about you and hoping for the best. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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
