ACR BI-RADS 5
Hi and welcome to our community!
Unfortunately, you do have reason for concern.
Family hx is a factor in only 10% to 15% of BC cases.
A radiologist is supposed to use the BI-RADS 5 Category only if there is a high level of suspiciousness, leading him/her to conclude there is > 95% chance of malignancy .
About 80% of BI-RADS 5 cases are confirmed to be cancer upon biopsy.
But on the other hand, none of these statistics mean much when it comes to an individual case. You could still be in the group that have benign results.
My best advice is, "Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst."
Please update us when you obtain your results, or write again if you have further questions or need support, by adding your additional posts to this same thread.
You will be in my thoughts.
