Just had my MRI done yesturday. I got the CD ( i get these for my own records ) of the test but its like looking at a picture of the moon. There were a lot of red and yellow colors on it. I don't know if that really means anything or not. Now the waiting game again till next week.View Thread
All of this is crazy. My first mammo found a nodule in left breast. They actually had a measurment. The had us and they said to come back for annual screening. Now I still have something same breast but no measurement and they are calling it nodularity. Had the us and spot compression. And then now going to have an mri. They have my last mammo and us to compair. I'm just wondering if I am always going to be told to have mammo, us and mri for my screenings. Or if they just really see something.View Thread
I just had a mammogram and ultrasound. My report says:
The breast parenchyma reveals evidence of involution with predominant adipose tissue and linear densities. there is nodularity in the lower mid left breast, presistent on MLO and CC projection.
This may represent varying parenchymal pattern.
CAD did not reveal any suspicious findings.
IMPRESSION: Nodularity, left breast
Breast Ultrasound: Normal architecture of the breast tissue is evident withour disruption of Cooper's ligaments. there is no homographic evidence of a discrete cystic or sold lesion in either breast.
1) unremarkable breast ultrasound
2) Left breast modularity correspond to ultrasound findings. Recommend further evaluation with breast mri with contrast.
I am confused as to why they want a MRI when the ultrasound seems clear. Why not do a biopsy if there is something there? I this normal or should I be concerned. Also MRI's are expensive and it is the end of the year, should I wait a couple of weeks since I have to pay my deductable. Or does it seem to show something I need to have checked sooner then later.
My doctor called the director of radiology and he said MRI is necessaryView Thread
