What to do if I had a mammo ultrasound fine needle aperation now they want me to have a ultrasound guided biopsy I'm scre?
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

What should I expect at my ultrasound guided FNA biopsy of my lymph node behind my jaw? Why can't I eat or drink after midnight the day before?

If cancer is present, it will be demonstrated in the biopsy as it is looked at under the microscope. If no cancer is in the specimen removed, then there is no cancer. You should still follow up with surgical physician for path report. ...Read more

However the biopsy was done to rule out atypical hyperplasia , or uterine cancer. The odds are in you favor. ...Read more
Conflicting ultrasounds from hosp radiology & gynecol performed at same time re: endo thickness. One recs biopsy; other no action. Which do I believe?
Why two US?: Curious why two us at same time. I would believe which one was more thorough and probably done second. If first was in gynecol office, could have been screening study and the second more thorough rad dept us is the one to believe. Could be vice versa. The one that did trans vaginal study should have the more accurate endo thickness measurement. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Would you have a partial mastectomy if your biopsy says big cell reaction and recently had mammogram and ultrasound and still adnormal?
Not enough info: I am not sure i understand the question. Did the biopsy show benign giant cell reaction? If so that is a benign foreign body reaction.

But sometimes an open excisiobal biopsy is done if a needle biopsy result does not correlate to the x-ray findings. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Diagnostic mamm and ultrasound showed what appreared to be fibroidadnoma but with lobulation at one end- had biopsy. What are chances this is cancer?
Why guess...: ...When you can be 100% certain as soon as the pathology results return? More often than not, when it looks like a fibroadenoma, it turns out to be just that. Of course, if we were 100% certain, we wouldn't need to do a biopsy. This "limbo" time can be very difficult--try to occupy your thoughts with anything but the biopsy. I hope it all turns out well! ...Read more
