Detect Dcis Mass
It is: possible, but a cardiac MR is not optimized for breast evaluation, so breast cancer detection on cardiac MR is likely to be accidental and imprecise.

Out of the field: Cardiac mr is centered on the heart. You may see on the border of the field partial breast tissue, but cardiac mr is not dedicated to breast. It is not the same exam, no the same protocol. Palpation and mammogram are the best. If something shows on the cardiac mr, then do mammogram. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Need more info: "cancerous change" can mean many things. There are different pre-cancerous changes seen on breast biopsies, such as ADH (vasopressin) or alh (atypical ductal or atypical lobular hyperplasia). There are early cancers called dcis or lcis (ductal carcinoma in situ or lobular carcinoma in situ). Hopefully this is nothing, but we need more information. Make sure to follow-up with your doctor! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Mammogram shows macro calcifications,& bilateral axillary sub cm nodes. Ultrasound shows normal readings. Strong family history of bc &uterine cancer.
Calcifications: Whether or not calcifications need to be biopsied primarily depends on their size, shape, and distribution. If they are typically benign based on those criteria, biopsy is usually not indicated. "Sub centimeter" axillary lymph nodes are normal findings. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Needs investigation: Although breast calcifications may not necessarily mean cancer, pleomorphic calcifications are suspicious. A biopsy should be done. Talk to your doctor. Pleomorphism means that something is of varying shape and characteristics. A non-cancerous or benign calcification will be read as "benign-appearing".

Yes: U/s is not a great screening test but an extension of the physical exam. It is very dependent upon the person (breast surg vs radiology tech?) doing the u/s, where they place the probe, how fast they move the probe, how much attention they pay to the screen, etc. U/s performed by a skilled breast surgeon can be very helpful and also used to guide sampling for definitive diagnosis and treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Biopsy: Transvaginal ultrasound is not designed to detect endocervical cancer. An early lesion may not produce enough structural change to be picked up ultrasound. If there is any reason to suspect endocervical cancer, curettings, or biopsy of the canal should be tested by a pathologist. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
