Do great-aunts having breast cancer affect risk for this disease? Or is it only first-degree relatives, (mom, sister, daughter)? 2 great aunts had it.

Depends. First degree relatives have more "punch" when talking about cancer risk but it depends greatly on the composition and the size of the family. Also depends on the ages at which the patients developed cancer and whether there are other types of cancer in the family. Talk to your gyn or pcp, maybe you need to see a professional with expertise in cancer genetics and risk assessment. Read more...
Very minimally. Having a first degree relative with breast cancer will increase the risk of a women getting breast cancer in their lifetime approximately 5% over the average population risk, which is 12%.

Having great aunts with breast cancer would increase the risk slightly, perhaps to 13%. Read more...

I am a single mom. I felt a big mass in my breast. I got a mammogram done which showed a cyst. I wanted it drained for cancer cell evaluation? Should I go for it?

OK to Drain, but... ...Not for cancer evaluation. Breast cysts are benign fluid-filled lumps that can appear "overnight" and, when large, can cause quite a bit of pain. While it is not necessary to biopsy these, many women prefer to have these aspirated due to the pain that they can cause. Ironically, we do not routinely send this fluid for evaluation (unless bloody) since they are, by definition, benign. Read more...
Treating fear with. A surgical or radiology directed procedure cures neither the tendency to form cysts or the scared feeling that causes the question. Giving reasons will not allay your concern. Age, family history, medication, physical finding and other history could influence, but cyst spiration and cytology each time you get a cyst is wasteful use of resources. You need help, but not cytology. Read more...
Follow MD's advice. It is likely a good idea to have the cyst drained and fluid examined by a pathologist. Since the question alone does not provide sufficient information, you should follow the advice of your doctor. Read more...

Mom is 43+ years old, got her mammogram done recently. Results showed right breast is negative and left Benign. What does this mean is it of normal?

Findings. I'm guessing based on the info you are giving that the left side has benign changes. This means things seen that can be classified as either suspicious or benign. Benign findings usually means the radiologist doubts its of concern, but wants another mammogram in a year to confirm stability. Read more...

How long should it take after a breast biopsy for my mom to get the results?

Many centers are. Accelerating biopsy to 'read out' times. Many recognize the problem with "presenteeism" being at the desk or counter, but unable to focus while worryig about the "report". You need to ask "how long wil the report take" and then ask why does it take so long, and ask for the time off of the lag time from biopsy to path report. Some can do it in 24-48hrs. Read more...
~48hrs. Most basic pathology results from a biopsy should be available in ~48hrs. The tissue needs to fix in formalin for a particular amount of time (6hrs-overnight) then be processed, slides made and stained, then interpreted. Each of these steps takes time. Additional staining or deeper cuts for furthe evaluation/markers may add another day before the full results are back. Read more...
