Common Questions and Answers about Lump in breast after biopsy

lump

Avatar f tn This is probably a lingering hematoma but am curious - I had a stereotactic breast biopsy in late May and developed a hematoma which appeared to go away but now I have a lump in the same area. It's been over 3 months, so I would have expected it would have gone away by now but my doctor felt it as well and I have to go back to a specialist in a couple of weeks. Any ideas/similar experiences?
Avatar n tn Hello, I am a 38 yr mom of 5, breast fed all my children, started my period at 12. Recently visited my Dr for a physical. I brought his attention to a lump in my r breast on just outside the areola towards the underarm side. I waited 3 weeks for a mam, then sent directly to the ultrasound room. Two days later my dr called to tell me I needed a biopsy, the radiologist was concerned about "irregular margins", the lump is solid, immovable and irregular shaped.
Avatar m tn hello everyone I have a strong family history of breast cancer mom and aunt had masectomies, i myself have a long history of papillomas and numerous breast biopies, 3 excisional,2 core, and ductal removals in both, all of the problems mostly with my right breast,until 6 months ago, i had a core biopsy for calcifications and being highly suspicious,came back benign, green fluid still persisted doc wanted to go in excisionally considering family history,he did a major ductal removal, he said i had
Avatar n tn I had a fine needle biopsy and after the procedure I too had a lump, plus bruising.I also had surgery on November last year and still have a little lump where the tumor was.My surgeon examined me and said that this is scar tissue and not to worry about it.With time this mass has shrunk considerably. .Soon you are going to have an excisional biopsy and the radiologist will surely put your mind at ease about this mass.Best wishes for your soon to come biopsy.
Avatar n tn Thank you CCF-RN. The lump after the stereotactic biopsy is a hematoma. Warm compresses should help decrease it.
Avatar n tn Anyway, now months later there is a good size lump there that you can feel just by barely touching it and it is very painful. Is this something that is common after a needle biopsy? Or is this something that could be serious that I need to get checked out. I do have breast cancer in my family history.
Avatar n tn During my anual exam, a lump was found in my breast. My PA sent me in for a mamogram, and a ultrasound. After the mamogram was completed I was sent to a second waiting room to wait while a Physician viewed it. After he ordered an additional shot he came back for a conversation, letting me know I would not be needing the previously planned ultrasound and I was to set up an appointment for a biopsy. This preplexed me. I was wondering if you could give me your thoughts on that situation.
Avatar n tn During a diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound, a small lump was discovered in my right breast. A core needle biopsy showed atypical duct cells and an excisional biopsy was ordered. After the surgery, the pathology report came back negative. However, a follow-up ultrasound shows that the lump, presumed to be a fibroadenoma, is still present and only slightly larger in size. It seems the wire localization used for surgery was not placed properly and the surgery needs to be done again.
Avatar n tn Am scheduled for a needle guided biopsy of two lumps in left breast on April 2nd. Am scared to death. Have waited so long (found the lump in May 2006) to get this out of me and find out exactly what I'm dealing with. It's really hard not knowing, but finding out I actually have cancer scares the daylights out of me. My dad had a cancerous tumor removed, had chemo and radiation, got sick and never got better. I have always said I wouldn't want chemo/radiation--just makes you sick.
Avatar f tn I had ask question about a recent core biopsy I had.. I forgot that after the biopsy I had a mammogram and the clip was placed fine and I need a six month follow up with an ultrasound and a mammogram and I have a Birads 3--probably benign findings,my questions is can this fibroadenoma turn to cancer at any time?

2002676 tn?1327791932 Hi, Kellie, I'd just like to reassure you also that most biopsy results (actually about 80%) end up benign, so please try to remain positive. In your case it sounds like your doctor is pretty sure that it's benign, but "pretty sure" isn't good enough when it comes to breast cancer and only a biopsy can tell for sure. Even if it's not benign, when found early (and your lump is very small) it's highly treatable with a good chance for no evidence of disease down the road.
Avatar n tn Dear Dr. I'm 30 years old and i had a breast biopsy on 1st July upon finding a lump in my left breast. It turned out to be stromal fibrosis after the test. I found out that there was an even bigger and harder lump after the surgery. When i went back to see the doctor he said it was normal and it takes about 6weeks to heal. It's been over 3months now and I still feel the lump though not painful or itchy as it used to be but still hard and big. Is this normal?
Avatar n tn Hi I am speaking in regards of my mom. She also has lump in her breast the she nor the dr can feel, but yet it showed up on the ultrasound and mammogram. They now want to do a biopsy. What stage was your cancer and is it a good sign that my mom's is not yet palpable?
Avatar f tn I don't think that waiting till the new year would change the biopsy results in any way.Odds are in your favor since your doctor said,after viewing your films, that the lump has benign characteristics.For your own peace of mind,you can certainly look for Breast Surgeon or radiologist to perform the biopsy at an earlier date.Wishing you good luck!! Take care...
689528 tn?1364139441 Hi, A breast biopsy,performed by a Radiologist or breast surgeon, consists in taking samples from a lesion/lump that appears somewhat suspicious on mammograms or Ultrasound imagery.The samples taken are examined microscopically by a pathologist who will confirm if the lump is of benign nature or not.There are different types of biopsies, but generally they are almost all the same... except for an excisional biopsy ,where suspicious lumps may be surgically removed from the body.
Avatar f tn I have a breast lump in L breast. Upon U/S and mammogram one radiologist said it was a lymph node. I had f/u appt with General Surgeon. His suggestion was biopsy. He did not think lymph node. I had biopsy and it showed :Fibrocystic changes with dense hyalinized stroma-with the comment: There is a small focal area suggestive of Pseudo-angiomatous stromal hyperplasia. I know this is a benign condition. My concern is that it is rare and sometimes misdiagnosed.
Avatar f tn Hi ellie, I would also prefer removing this lump,but for the time being, I think that you can wait till you see the doctor in July .The biopsy was clear and the lump is still the same size and that's a good sign. At your next appointment with your doctor in July,you could mention to him/her that you are worried about this lump and that you prefer to have it removed. Don't worry for now,the doctor would have suggested to remove it,if he thought that it was necessary to do so.
Avatar n tn I'm not sure why you would choose NOT to have a biopsy if you have a palpable lump and why in the world would you physician agree with this. Please rethink your decision and have the biopsy. Better safe than sorry.
Avatar f tn I have a big indentation in my breast after the biopsy. They didn't even do the lumpectomy yet. Is this normal? The lump before the ultrasound was pea size now it feels almost golf ball size. The doctor say it trauma from the biopsy. Could the cancer spread that fast? I had the surgery 3 weeks ago.
Avatar n tn Dear ydf, From what you describe I'm wondering if you have developed some scar tissue or bruising at the site. A lump that has developed so quickly after this procedure would most likely be due to a benign (non-cancerous) process. You should discuss this with your doctor, they have all of the evaluation information leading up to the biopsy, as well as the pathology report. They may be able to reassure you without any further evaluation.
Avatar m tn ) had a lump removed yesterday for a biopsy. the doctor said he was 90% sure it was not breast cancer. then she woke up this morning in a lot of pain. we took her too the emergency room and after the doctor examined her he said it was a hematoma(spelling?) and it wasnt life threatening. we were so scared it was a blood clot. now she is home and wrapped in bandages. i cant handle it. i am sure she is fine. she gets the results on tuesday. has anyone had a hematoma? will she be ok?
Avatar f tn I had a lump in my right breast, then I went to a surgeon he felt the lump and drained some fluids from the lump,then told me he was going to remove it that day which was in mar 2010 now its may 2010 and the same lump is back and in the same spot. the only thing the surgeon said was the biopsy did not show cancer. so my question is how could this return again and the same spot. I am 35 years old.
