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.
Perhaps. While it would be highly unlikely for cervix cancer to spread to the breast, if it did, plain mammography would likely not differentiate the two processes.
Hmmm. It would be unlikely that cervical cancer would metastasize to the breast. While rare, metastasis to the breast have slightly different characteristics on mammogram and ultrasound from primary breast cancers, but they can look similar enough that a biopsy would be needed.

Mammogram, ct, MRI and ultrasound tests for breast cancer - what is best?

Probably MRI. As a stand alone test MRI is probably the best but these tests all supplement each other and their are benefits to using all when needed. Read more...
Depends. These are all great tests to evaluate the breast tissue. The can be used in combination and provide different types of information. Deciding which to use depends on: age of patient, density of the breast tissue and the type of information needed. Ct is reserved to evaluate for metastatic (spread of cancer outside of breast) disease. Read more...
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 more...
Start with mammogram. For the vast majority of individuals, work-up/screening should start with mammogram. Ultrasound may be ordered next. Breast MRI is used to screen for breast ca in certain high risk individuals or to complete the work-up of a newly diagnosed breast ca patient. Ct has no roll in the diagnosis of breast cancer - unless one is incidentally picked-up on a chest ct. Read more...

I have fibrocystic breasts and I only get mammograms and ultrasounds every 2 years. Is this enough? I am 34 with no family history of breast cancer.

More than enough. There is controversy about mammography and some doubt that routine mammography reduces breast cancer mortality. What you are doing is more than recommended by preventive services task force. You may consult this site for more info: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/712473. Read more...
