Lymph Node Enlarment After Breast Core Biopsy
Lymph node showed up on 3 d mammogram, breast is larger then the other one, should I ask for a breast biopsy?
Biopsy is tissue removed by needle or cutting to remove part of a body part. It is usually a small amount of material that is processed by a pathologist. Most of the time it is stained and looked at through a microscope to arrive at a diagnosis. Special processes are done for some tissues or problems. The purpose is to tell what the problem is (diagnosis). ...Read more

Had breast stereostatic biopsy done my results came bck benign lymph node what is dis and was wondering if this puts me at risk for cancer?
Lymph nodes: can normally occur within the Breast. If they can't be definitely identified as lymph nodes on imaging, or if they do not appear completely normal, needle biopsy may be necessary. If they turn out benign, no worries, there is no increased risk for cancer and nothing further needs to be done. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I just had an MRI on my breast and they report came back and said a lymph nodes on both breast 4 mm not sure if cancer would you do a biopsy ?
Removing a few nodes: A sentinel node biopsy means removing several lymph nodes in the chain of armpit lymph nodes. Blue dye and/or radioactivity is injected into the breast.The first armpit lymph nodes that "light up" are removed and examined for cancer cells. We know that cancer cells travel through lymph nodes in order. If the sentinel lymph nodes are negative, the others are assumed to be negative as well. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
For breast cancer can lymph nodes be tested with needle biopsy or must they 100% be removed to check them.?
Depends on size: Larger lymph nodes that can be felt or are over 1/2" on ultrasound can be biopsied with a needle. If that shows cancer, often no further lymph node surgery is needed NOW, but might be needed later. If no lymph nodes can be felt, and none are enlarged by ultrasound, then a "Sentinel Node Biopsy" -- removing the "sentry" or guardian lymph node of the armpit is needed; sometimes more than one. ...Read more
Mom had 4 breast masses on mamma, and irregular, non-fatty lymph node detected. biopsy weds. definitely indicative of cancer? any benign reasons?
Do you need to remove 100% of a lymph node to check for breast cancer, or can they be checked with a needle biopsy?
Yes: lymph nodes are only of concern if a malignant lesion of breast is present. Usually the breast tumors are small and the incidence of nodal involvement is low so that following excisional biopsy a sentinel node bx is performed removing only those nodes in the field of drainage. If a node is palpable, it is best to remove by excisional bx unless very large when aspiration can be tried. ...Read more
O had surgery for positive breast cancer. Is sentinel lymph node biopsy accurate for breast cancer surgery. Node was negative.
Biopsy showed Breast cancer cells present in one lymph node, no previous or current BC showing in mammo, US or MRI, how is this possible?
LN + for BC cells: All the screening tests to detect breast cancer are not "100%" accurate, even bilateral MRI. Finding a "lump" in one's breast may occur without m'gm/U/S or MRI detection of "possible breast cancer". The good news is that finding these cells when the screening tests were negative, allows early treatment, and a good chance of stopping the disease. ...Read more
After a biopsy, i was diagnosed with breast cancer. The doctor said it is in the lymph nodes. I got results that came out negative but instead said metastatic breast. What does this mean?
Not clear to me: Typically, breast cancer spreads first to regional lymph nodes and then to other parts of the body. Once breast cancer spreads to the lymph nodes it is considered to have metastasized. It would be critical to understand exactly what results were "negative" to determine its significance. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

22yrs old mammogram normal enlarged right axillary lymph node 7mm left axillary lymph node 3mm waiting biopsy results. Family history breast cancer?
Be patient: Even with a family history of breast cancer, it would be very rare for a 22 yo to have the disease. You only have about a 14-15% chance of developing breast cancer, unless there are multiple family members who have the disease. There are many reasons for lymph nodes to enlarge, many benign, so just wait for the results. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
A week ago i had a stereotactic biopsy on my breast the results turned out to be a benign lymph node. Since then I have formed a large golf ball sized lump at the site. Is this dangerous? Go to er?
Likely OK: Most likely you have developed a collection of blood (hematoma) at the site of biopsy. This is common after a stereotactic biopsy and should slowly resolve over the next few weeks. There is nothing in particular to do. It may be tender for a while but this should resolve with time as well. However, if you have any new or worsening symptoms at any point, consult your physician. Best of luck to you. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
