Ultrasound Pictures Of Breast Cancer
Would metastatic cervical cancer in the breast appear the same as breast cancer on mammogram and ultrasound?
Possibly on imaging: Cervical cancer (the tissue at the end of the vaginal canal) rarely metastasizes to the breast. Rather breast cancer may metastasize to many areas of body, such as bone, lung, brain, lymph nodes. That being said, any abnormal growth in the breast, though mostly breast tissue, could look similarly by mammogram or ultrasound. The bottom line is if there is an abnormality, must be biopsied. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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
It is a complementry: Ultrasound is useful test commonly done after a mammogram. It can make a distinction between solid(likely to be cancer) and cystic (usually benign)strutures. The accuracy of ultrasound is operator dependent...So a good/experienced radiologist can make good use of this test for accurate dignosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mammogram doubts neoplastic process, scan shows well lobulated solid mass,wider than taller,family history of 2 sis of breast cancer..d/d plz
It sounds: like you had a breast ultrasound as well. Obviously limited info and incomplete description, but based on those descriptors, it is probably a BIRADS category 3 lesion(98% or greater chance of being benign). Most commonly, a mass with this description is a benign fibroadenoma. ...Read more
History invasive breast cancer, US of thyroid show multiple solid nodule, largest 1.5 CM w/microcalcifications & hypervascularity. Odds of malignancy?
Needs biopsy: Suspicious cluster opleomorphic microcalcifications on mgram may be due to breast cancer. Therefore you need to undergo a biopsy. Usually they sggest a stereotactic biopsy which is a type od percutaneous needle biopsy n a special x-ray table. Please follow with a breast carer specialist or a radiologist experien in this procedure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Complementary: A mammogram is an excellent screening test, designed to find cancers before they are palpable. An ultrasound is best utilized for determining the severity of what was seen on mammography. Using the info from both studies, we can then decide if biopsy is necessary. Ultrasound is also a tool to supplement physical exams--it's like a stethoscope for breast surgeons. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Depends: Most benign breast findings do not lead to or cause breast cancer. Some breast tissue biopsies can show benign but possibly pre-cancerous cells, such as atypical ductal hyperplasia or lobular neoplasia (for example). You would need to discuss any breast biopsy results and their possible risks with your doctor. ...Read more
1st mammogram ever and abnormal, family history breast cancer. Single group amorphous microcalcs in left breast. US BIRAD 3 and now going for MRI. Biopsy?
A grouping: of amorphous calcifications is probably not appropriate for BIRAD category 3(probably benign). Although they are still likely going to be benign, stereotactic needle biopsy may be more appropriate management, and BIRAD 4 a more appropriate category. Breast MRI is generally not that useful in the imaging work up of microcalcifications. ...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". Don't delay your biopsy. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Scans showed a lobulated heterogeneous hypoechoic area in right breast. Awaiting FNA. Could this be serious? Strong family history of breast cancer.
Situational: For screening: mammograms are the most valuable. For diagnosis (palpable mass, mammographic density): ultrasound can be very helpful. Mris are the most sensitive test for breast cancer, but their prohibitive cost makes this unaffordable for large-population screening. It is best used in high-risk patients, those with very dense breast tissue, and for evaluating the extent of a known breast cancer. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
What are the odds of having stage 2B invasive ductal carcinoma her2 positive breast cancer and papillary thyroid cancer at age 40?
Odds are low.: But it is still possible to have both. Risk of having papillary thyroid before forty is about 13/100,000. Risk of having breast Ca is about 11/100,000. The overlap of the two independent events is slightly less than 1 in a million. ...Read more
Can photoacoustic breast imaging solve the conventional challenge in diagnosing breast cancer for patients with dense breast tissues?
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
Occurs when glandular cells lining the milk ducts and lobules of the human breast begin to grow in an unregulated manner. 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
