Avatar n tn This is why women with heavy periods often show anemia on CBC. The lady with breast cancer may not be well educated on colon cancer, breast cancer is much less likely to effect the results of CBC, however colon cancer is likely to effect CBC by causing anemia. Also colonoscopy checks for many many things including IBD, Crohn's, Colitis, Polyps, etc. That is almost certainly what your doctor is checking for...not colon cancer.
Avatar n tn I had invasive ductal breast cancer and under went a lumpectomy, radiation and chemo in 2006. I have a mamo and PET scan in December. My mamo came back begion but my PET scan showed something there. My doctor ordered a bone scan. What would be the reason if the bone scan?
Avatar f tn I am a tb patient, from some time back my a white liquid came out from my breast it is dangerous? can you tell me about this?
Avatar n tn All my tests came back one positive node and the cancer in left breast. I had Chemo then before I finished Chemo the cancer came back to the same 2 areas.Then I had a masectomy followed by more chemo and 7 weeks of radiation. Just recently I asked my Oncologist to order another Pet Scan just to make sure everything was going good. The first Pet scan in August 22, 2007 came back negative.
Avatar n tn I had a lumpectomy in 2000 including two sentinel nodes removed from my left breast which came back clear. I had radiation treatment only. In July 2007, I had a biopsy because my mammogram because the scar from my surgery was increasing. It came back benign. I recently had another mammogram (one week ago) and showed two spots of calcification in the area of my surgical scar. My blood work came back clean.
Avatar n tn my estrogen receptor status is positive and the same for my progesterone but the her2/neu overexpression came back negative. What does all this mean? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/259573'>HER2/Neu overexpression node negative prognosis</a>.
Avatar f tn I had a lumpectomy on my right breast in 2006 it came back as atypical ductal hyperplasia. I recently had another lumpectomy, this time it was in my left and it came back as sclerosins adenosis. I was told after the first surgery that I had about an 8% chance of developing breast cancer. Does this second diagnosis put me at an even greater risk?
Avatar f tn Although I didn't get the results back from the last two test, I read up on breast cancer and although I couldn't feel any lumps, my lymph nodes under my arm are swollen, plus green is coming from the left breast ( the one being test). I am 47 yrs. old and breast cancer doesn't run in my family. I am having anxienty attacks about this problem. What should be done next, if these results are bad? What are my chances of having breast cancer? I'm a white woman with no children.
Avatar n tn radiation 5 years to the date my cancer came back close to the collar bone they scraped the bone and removed the muscles and took the left breast. i had to have skin graft over the wound because it wouldnt heal. a leasion appeared and they removed it. i was unable to have radiation because of it and i couldnt under go chemo because i had such a bad reaction to it. so they put me on femera since the tamoxafin didnt work.
Avatar f tn I have nipple discharge, lump behind my nipple breast pain, redness and a enlarged lymphoid under my left arm. My question is if they biopsy one area of the breast and it comes back negative does that mean my entire breast is cancer free or just that area of the biopsy?. I have a followup on the 21 but now the doctor told me she might schedule and MRI or surgery to remove the lump.
Avatar f tn On the July 27 (my bday) I got a call saying they needed more pictures on my left breast. I went a week later and they took about 4 different views of it and I knew they were looking at something. After a short wait to find out the result a dr. came in to talk to me...I knew something was wrong. He said there is something there and it look malignant and they need a biopsy. How can they tell by only a mammo! The nurse talk to me afterwards to say it could just be calicification.
Avatar n tn However, I have very dense breasts and have to go for a breast sonography. My bloodtests all came back within normal ranges except my globulin showed 3.9 with lab showing normal ranges of 1.1-3.7 and A/G ratio low of 1.1 lab showing 1.1-2.1. What I want to know is this. Because of previous PRE-Cancerous moles, previous fibro tumors and now dense breasts and a nodule in my thyroid should I be OVERLY CONCERNED about cancer throughout my body?
Avatar n tn My PET SCan results came back and I'm confused. This is what it says: Subcentimeter foci of moderate hypermetabolism within left breast parenchyma. These are nonspecific and may be related to inflammation from recent biopsy or can represent residual neoplasm. Hypermetabolic lymph node at the prevascular space, suspicious for metastatic disease. This alternatively can represent thymic hyperplasia. What does this mean? What treatment options would you recommend?
Avatar f tn Also, you may want to call around to your local hospitals, I just had an ultrasound done on my breast, which came back clear:-) and the hospital gave me finaincial aid papers to fill out to help with the cost. Nevertheless, it is probably not cancer. They wouldnt even do a mammo on me bc I am only 27 and they were concerned about exposure to the radiation. If I were you I would not even worry about it. I think if it was cancer it would have grown atleast a little over 9 years.
Avatar f tn I did my mammogram and ultra sound, got something new in mammogramme but nothing in ultra sound in my mammogram small foci of microcalcifications in right breast, total 7mm in diameter.
Avatar n tn 28 lymphnodes were removed from my right axilla, both the lymphnodes and the breast tissue that were removed came back negetive for cancer. why do i still need radiation. im scared of the long term effects and of damaged tissue. can i stop radiation would it be okay, and would i have the same percentage of healing.
Avatar n tn My aunt has stage III breast cancer. 17 out of 23 lymph nodes came back positive. She just underwent a bilateral mastectomy . shouldn't she have had treatments before having surgery? And if so how does this affect further metastasis and her prognosis?
7413306 tn?1390717516 Hi there, my results just came back with 4 lesions being identified in breast and the combined diameter of this mass and the hypoechoic lesion with calcifications is in 10 0clock position, 6cm from nipple and is approx 5.5cm. What is the chances of having to have full breast removed? I have already had partial masectomy on other breast.
Avatar n tn My 28 year old daughter felt a bump in her left breast about 6 weeks ago. She did not have a period for 8 weeks and finally started her period last week. Also last week she saw a Dr and he ordered a mammogram. The mammogram came back abnormal, so she had a sonogram the next day. When she asked the sonogram person if he measured the bump he said there was nothing to measure??? Confusing because we know there is a lump in there. We are waiting on sonogram resuls now.
Avatar n tn My great aunt on my maternal side had breast cancer and died. My aunts, mom and cousins on my mom side have issues with lumps in there breast. It seems that every year they have to have a lump removed. Always benign. My paternal grandmother and I are like two pea's in a pod. Every health issue she had growing up I have gotten, right down to thinning hair and a short stature. I guess I am wondering how likely It would be that I too will get breast cancer.
Avatar f tn I have been taking Arimidex for 6 years and just 2 weeks ago my tumor marker and CBC blood work came back normal. It seems to me that the fact that I am on Arimidex and the labs were normal, that it would be in my favor that it will prove to be nothing. Should I be concerned? It's really making me anxious.
2095856 tn?1333149487 Hi my name is Kavin i am a kid one kid was biting my boobs and i just want to know what will happen to me and will i have breast cancer or not please let me know thank you
Avatar f tn My mass was so large they had to do chemo first trying to shrink the mass, then mastectomy, then more chemo followed by radiation. My suggestion is to see if there is a breast cancer treatment center where you live where you make an appointment and see the chemo oncologist, surgeon, plastic surgeon and radiation oncologist all at one sitting.
Avatar n tn doc, my friend was diagnosed with breast cancer a few mths ago. she removed a lump which was about 2cm diameter. results came in and it was confirmed to be cancerous. she decided not to use any therapy of any kind. she is sticking with a vege diet with only fresh fruits and vegetables. is it possible that she can be cured this way? if not what would be the survival chances in years, i believe the cancer was in it's first stage.
Avatar n tn And I had been having terrible back pains which is confined only on the left side of my back. I also experienced a feeling of numbness on the right breast. I have no history of cancer in the family. I am 41 years old. Could this be breast cancer?
Avatar f tn I had the bilateral mammography and left breast ultrasound on June 6/11, my first ever, and the result came back very disturbing to me and to my husband, it worry. I don't know in the family had a breast cancer but some other kind of cancer. Please help explain to me further regarding this result. FINDINGS: Very extensive residual parenchyma is demonstrated in all quadrants of both breasts.
Avatar f tn , about 40,410 women will die from breast cancer this year, making it the second most lethal cancer in women. (Lung cancer is the leading cancer killer in women.) The good news is that early detection and new treatments have improved survival rates. The 5-year survival rate for women diagnosed with cancer is 80%. About 88% of women diagnosed with breast cancer will survive at least 10 years.
Avatar f tn I am on the second week post op from my lumpectomy. Everything has been fine. I had stitches removed. Now my breast is swollen and it feel hard. Is this normal? I am not sure if I should use heat or ice. How long does this part last? ACK!!
