Irregular shaped lesion found on right axillan, advice needed
I can only try to explain a few things…But it’s your sister’s Doctor who would be able to fully explain the terms used on her Ultrasound report.The most important features on a breast ultrasound, are the edges of the lesion margins. If the edges are irregular, then it is possible that it could be cancer, but it’s also possible that it could be benign.The characteristics of no blood flow (vascularity) is a good sign, since cancer grows at a faster rate than the surrounding tissue and thus would have increased blood flow.
BIRADS category 4 means that the abnormality is suspicious,but not very,otherwise the score would have been 5.
It’s impossible,even for an experienced Radiologist to know for sure what the suspicious lesion may represents unless a biopsy is performed and the tissue examined by a pathologist to obtain a correct diagnosis.
We all know that the waiting for the results is very stressful, but there is nothing we can do….
It's important to keep busy as much as possible during this time,so the waiting will seem shorter.
Hoping that all goes well for your sister and best wishes to both of you. Read More At : ...
