Suggested Questions And Answer :


birad 3

I feel certain the follow-up recommendation was for a Mammogram and not a biopsy .... BIRADS 3 calls for a re-check in 6 months rather than the normal 1 year interval. Only a BIRADS 4 would call for an immediate biopsy but biopsies are done as a result of a questionable finding but not as a re-check.   Regards ....

BIRADS 1 or BIRADS 3 or maybe 4?

Hi. A BIRADS score 3 means that the finding is "Probably benign" and a follow up is usually recommended A BIRADS score 1 certainly means that the lump is definitely benign. I think that the best thing to do is to talk to your Doctor about your worries and see what he advises you to do.Maybe a biopsy would put your mind at ease if there is any doubt about this lump. Mammograms,Ultrasound and MRI are very valuable tools to detect abnormalities,but they are not infallible.When one is uncertain about the results,the only sure way to know is to have the lump biopsied. Please talk to your Doctor about this,I am sure he/she will give you the best advise concerning theses different BIRADS scores and what needs to be done. Best wishes....

Birad category 5: Suggestions for dealing with someone with disabilities

I would certainly try to get in touch with the Surgeon and explain the situation beforehand. As far as mentioning the word cancer; as you say there is no proof but a BIRAD 5 is highly suggestive of malignancy. At some point she is going to have to be told and deal with it to the best of her ability. I don't believe in keeping the facts from pt.s ... it never pays in the long run. Keeping all this from her until the last minute (which will be quite a task) may make her turn on you when she is told. It can be discussed in a very gentle manner but I wouldn't recommend hiding it to the extent you suggest. There are support groups and counsellors available thru the Amer. Cancer Society so you might think about these for some help.  Regards ....

BIRADS CATEGORY 5

Unfortunately, a BI-RADS 5 means that the radiologist sees signs or clues that that are highly suspicious for  cancer: "Category 5 -- Malignant There are masses with an appearance of cancer. A biopsy is recommended to make an accurate diagnosis. " However, the true nature of the lesion can only be known from the report of a patholgist following a biopsy or excision. (Case in point: We recently had a thread by a woman who has a  BI-RADS 5 that eventually turned out to be benign.) My advice would be to "Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst." Best wishes...

First of all I'm quite surprised that you are on HRT as it is rarely prescribed these days since it has been proven to increase the incidence of Breast Cancer. Of course it would depend on how long you've been on it and also what dosage but I certainly wouldn't advise HRT under most circumstances. You should be sure to inform the Breast Specialist / Surgeon that you are on HRT though. Now to your initial questions ... the type of biopsy will be determined by the Breast Surgeon OR the Radiologist and it will depend on the location and nature of the area being biopsied. The testing of lymph nodes will also be at the discretion of whomever is doing the biopsy but I would think not at this time; probably if further surgery is required there will be some type of sampling done. By the way the BIRAD 0 in 2002 meant that there was not enough information available and additional testing was necessary at that time to arrive at any conclusion.  Regards .....

suspicious birads 4

Hi, A BIRADS category 4 means that whatever was detected in all the tests you had,is suspicious and nothing more than that. To know for sure what this suspicious finding represents, I am sure that your surgeon will want to proceed with a biopsy which is the only way to know exactly what's going on. I don't think that you should be overly worried about this right now,because many biopsied abnormalities are found to be benign and I sure hope that your biopsy results will be BENIGN also. Please keep us posted.. Best wishes and good luck...

Mammo/Birad 4B

If you have researched then you no doubt know that a BIRADS 4 indicates the need for a biosy. The sub-categories A,B,C are merely used to indicate different degrees of suspicion ... mild, moderate and highly suspicious for malignancy. Not all Radiologists use them but the bottom line is a category 4 needs to be biopsied.  Regards ...

I think your decision to seek a second opinion is a valid one. Actually the BIRADS 0 on your 2007 Mammogram indicated that enough information was not available to render a report. I would think that an Ultrasound or Magnification views or even just additional views would have been done at that time. I'm not sure what type of second opinion you are getting but I would have the films read (all of them) by another Radiologist as a first step.  Regards .....

Birad 4 for 3 mm deep complex cyst

A complex cyst has two walls (to put it simply)and does need a biopsy to determine it's true nature. I wouldn't think there would be any difference as far as "spreading" with a cyst of this nature. The size (3mm) is very small. The score of BIRAD 0 simply means that a diagnosis can't be made without further investigation.  Regards ....
