BRCA stage3 FNAB report on MRM hypoechoic mass is fatty cells and stroma is there a possibilty to become malignant ? Is it necessary to be removed?47y
It depends: I am not necessarily worried it may turn in to cancer but rather that the biopsy did not sample the tissue in that mass that is malignant. If the mammogram is very worrisome for cancer but the FNAB gave those results then your doctor may consider rebiopsy. Keep in mind FNA biopsy is less reliable than core-needle biopsy ...Read more
An endoscopy discovered a "giant lateral spreading duodenal lesion" it is not malignant.. Is it usual for these to become malignant ?
What's the biopsy?: More than likely, the endoscopist biopsied the lesion in question. The histology of this lesion, not included with your question, will likely address your concern. Please discuss the results with your doctor who may choose to perform additional biopsies or order a ct scan to best prognose the extent and future course of your lesion (e.g. Whether surgery is needed or spread is possible). ...Read more
Complex thyroid nodule biopsied said to be benign... Now regardless of the diagnosis... Could it be possible that nodule is cancerous and biopsy missed it?
Yes and no: Cirrhosis is a histologic diagnosis but can made without a biopsy with almost certainty based on lab data, imaging studies and physical exam. Liver cancer (hcc) is also a histologic diagnosis, but in the setting of cirrhosis it can be made based on MRI or ct imaging criteria without a biopsy with >95% certainty. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Complex thyroid nodule... Negative for malignancy ... Adenomatoid nodule with resolving hemorrhage? What? And is it still possible for it to cancerous
Low risk: The risk of malignancy in a thyroid nodule is low, especially after one negative biopsy but it is not 0%. That's why u still need to follow this nodule in time with another ultrasound to make sure it is not growing or changing significantly. If it does, u will need another biopsy or consider taking it out. The nodule u have had blood inside it which had been absorbed, thus "resolving hemorrhage". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Thymic extra nodal marginal zone lymphoma diagnosis on thymectomy. How likely is it to spread to bone marrow? If so, is it serious? What are the treatments?
It depends: The most important aspect about thymomas is not the histology and in some cases whether it has spread beyond the thymic capsule; but how it behaves clinically. The most important thing is to remove all of the tumor at the first setting even if it spread outside the capsule. External beam radiation is for treatment of local disease, chemo for systemic. ...Read more
