Breast Biopsy Results

I think you should post at the other site that the nurse responds to. Also, you might consider having your results sent to a breast specialist for another opinion/clarification of the results. Or call the radiologist and ask that he/she go over the results with you. They should be willing to answer your questions and help you understand the findings.

Stage Diagnosis Made Based on a PET/CT without Biopsy?

Cancer that has metastisized to other parts of the body (bone, brain, liver, etc.) is staged as IV. Since you have only had a biopsy of the breast tumor I assume that you will be having some additional surgery; either lumpectomy or mastectomy. Perhaps a biopsy of the other sites will be done at the same time as this additional breast surgery. All scans can produce false positives as they are quite sensative and will pick up most any abnormality. I had a bone scan light up an area in my jaw which was due to an abscessed tooth of several years previous. Cancer does require a biopsy for a definite diagnosis.  Kindest regards....

Hematomas and radiologists

It could be the Radiologists but it could also be the particular area that's being biopsied ... vessels that would be punctured along the way. I wouldn't blame it all on the Radiologists but the vascularity of the area. With surgical procedures there is a method to control the bleeding that occurs but with a closed procedure there isn't much that can be done. Do you bruise easily ??

effect of biopsy

I answered your question earlier which is much the same as this post. Please read my answer to your previous post. I do see that you say you have ask people who have breast lumps but you are eithr mistaken or you have been given false information. A biopsy is NEVER done after surgery ... always before .... unless the lump was removed in order to study the tissue under the microscope ... this would be an excisional biopsy. A biopsy is done to prevent an unnecessary invasive surgery if at all possible. If the diagnosis is "benign" then no surgery is necessary.  You need to rely on the information you receive from your Dr.s rather than asking others .... no case is the same as another so you cannot compare your situation with someone else's. You of course are more than welcome to come here with questions but your primary information should come from you Dr. who has your complete medical history.   Take care ....

ductal papilloma found in biopsy

Hi. The previous uterine and the present breast papillomas are not related, and the presence of one does not increase your risk of developing the other.  These breast papillomas are benign conditions that is not pre-malignant, but I would still suggest you still undergo serial screening such as that of mammograms and ultrasounds to catch any new breast lesions.  Though papillomas may not be seen with these tests, you can still catch other more serious breast lesions such as that of DCIS or invasive cancer early in their course. Regards.

Excisional Biopsy?

Something similar happened to me in 2005. Only, in my case, the doctors couldn't reach the area where the calcifications formed using the needle method. So, I had to have a surgical (excision) biopsy. That caused a delay in the whole biopsy process; which delayed having any conclusive answer as to the nature of the calcifications (which turned out to be benign). But, all of the delays resulted in a mounting wave of  anxiety. So, I can really relate to what you're going through. I would say, hope for the best but, be prepared to undergo the excisional biopsy, which would enable the doctor(s) to get a better sample of calcifications and surrounding breast tissue. And, keep in mind that statistically, microcalcifications are rarely, if ever, found to be of a cancerous origin. The odds are in your favor. Take care.

Excisional biopsy

Well... if you want to know the nature of the lesion, only a pathology finding from a biopsy could tell you that. So, in that sense, a biopsy is necessary. I've had both surgical/ excisional and stereotactic/ needle biopsies. So, I could tell you about both... but since you ask about the surgical procedure, I can honestly say that mine wasn't nearly as bad as I had expected. I was fully sedated for the duration of the procedure, which lasted about a half an hour. Soon after I awoke, I was off on my way along with instructions to follow and a prescription for Vicodin. I was left with an overall groggy feeling for the remainder of the day due to the after effects of the sedative. Anyway, I didn't need to use the Vicodin script. Pain thresholds and discomfort levels vary and, my pain was rather minimal. On a scale of 1-10, I’d say that my pain level was probably at a 4. If anything, I felt more soreness and sensitivity than true pain... but, that was easily managed with extra-strength Tylenol. Ice packs worked wonders for reducing the swelling and overall achyness. And, there was a significant amount of bruising... it was kinda scary to look at. But, it didn’t take long for the bruising to disappear along with the swelling and achy feeling. As a precautionary measure, I was instructed to avoid heavy lifting and getting into hot tubs. Sleeping, I'd say, presented the major challenge as I'm unaccustomed to sleeping on my back... but, I somehow managed it. Complete healing took a couple of weeks. And, I was left with a fine, inch and a half, hairline scar... which is now, very faint and barely visible. All in all, I would say that the toughest part of the entire ordeal was the waiting period to hear the pathology results. I received mine in about 3 days and thankfully, it returned with benign findings... as I'm hoping that yours will. Take care... good luck with the biopsy and if you want more input/ advice or just need some emotional support with this, please feel free to PM me. "i"
