Common Questions and Answers about Right breast mri

Avatar f tn I just went for my annual mammo the first of February and the results were they found an area of concern in my right breast that needed further evaluation. I went for the second mammo and again the same results. When I called the doctor they informed me the radiologist recommended I have an MRI. Is this a normal procedure? I've always heard that they perform a biopsy to determine if it's cancerous or not. Should I be concerned?
Avatar f tn I went for my annual mammo the first of Febuary, the results showed an area of concern in my right breast. I went back for the second mammo in my right breast with the same results. Now the radiologist has recommended an MRI. Is this a normal procedure? Most women I've know have biopsies not MRI's. Should I be concerned or is my anxiety probably all for nothing?
1245359 tn?1268596667 Dear Michele_Swain, Breast pain is a common breast symptom. The reason for breast pain is not clearly understood, and is not usually associated with breast cancer. Breast pain is sometimes associated with hormonal variations and is then called cyclical breast pain. Noncyclical breast pain does not seem to be linked to hormonal variations and is often localized to one area of the breast tissue. Noncyclical breast pain may or may not be the result of an injury to the breast.
Avatar n tn ultrasound and then they scheduled a biopsy on my right breast. Apparently there was enhancement of my right breast on the MRI. Should I be alot worried or a little?
Avatar m tn From the beginning of August until now, she had seizures 4 times (she never have seizures before), all last about a minute long, AND she has severe muscle atrophy and minimal use of the right forelimb. There is a painful mass in the axilla, most likely associated with the brachial plexus. The neurologist said usually seizures and nerve tumores are not related, but he suggests us to have a MRI to try to find out what's wrong with my dog.
Avatar m tn I recently had an MRI as follow up to a diagnosis of a 7mm malignancy in my right breast. Here is the summary finding that leaves me confused as to whether a larger area of malignancy exists. Lumpectomy is scheduled for 4/5. Should I be worried that I have a much larger cancer than originally indicated? IMPRESSION: 1. Right breast: Non-mass and mass enhancement surrounds the micro clip in the upper outer mid posterior position, spanning up to 2.4 cm.
Avatar f tn I had an MRI it found that I have small mass on the outside of my right breast. Should I be concerned that it my be cancer?
Avatar f tn Is a breast MRI like a regular MRI, i.e., to you have to be in the "tunnel"? I am very claustrophobic and need to know in advance if I need to schedule the MRI at a center than has open MRI's. If anyone who has had this procedure could tell me what to expect, I would be very grateful. The more details, the better. Thank you in advance.
Avatar f tn My next question-is it always necessary to have a breast MRI before a hollow core biopsy that would leave markers. The surgeon seems to believe that this is the only way to go and I'm not sure. I had planned on having the biopsy today but it has been canceled until I have a MRI. The not-knowing if this is cancer or not is the scariest part of this entire thing!
Avatar f tn There are some very effective treatments for triple-negative breast cancer. Your doctor will work with you to find the treatment that is right for you.
Avatar n tn php Your doctor is doing the right thing by giving you an MRI in light of your breast cancer diagnosis. She is erring on the side of caution, and I totally understand why here. I can't imagine how hard this is, and people telling you that you're over reacting isn't helping, I'm sure. They're probably trying to be helpful, but I think waiting for results is one of the hardest parts of the medical process.

Avatar f tn Hello Everyone, I hope someone can help me understand the results of my Breast MRI. Two weeks ago I had a MRI. I thought I had a lump growing in my right breast. I was recently put on HRT. The MRI showed nothing suspicious in that breast, just the usual fibros and lots of cysts. But, it did show what was described as a cluster of star dust in in a starburst pattern in the left breast. What could this be if calcifications do not show up on a MRI? Should I be concerned or is a false positive?
Avatar f tn m including a website with a complete explanation of the Breast MRI .... hope it will answer all your questions. A contrast material may (but not always) be used; you would need to ask about that before your procedure if you object to it being used. http://www.radiologyinfo.org/en/info.cfm?
Avatar f tn I am so I asked about an MRI and Stereotactic biopsy was recommended. My concern is this...The breast tissue in my right breast is denser than the left. Also, it feels different than the left and I can fell another small lump. I know that MRI's are used for detecting cancer in dense breast tissue, wouldn't an MRI be the most accurate way to go to be sure the spot or surrounding tissue are not cancerous? Also, I just had a mole removed from the same breast and it is precancerous.
Avatar f tn this is also the same year my lumpectomy was done. My biggest concern right now is my right breast areola scaling but I have an additional question about my visit tomorrow and subsequent mammogram later this month....do you have any good questions i should ask and is there any other testing i should ask aabout regarding diagnostic mammography? im seriously concerned they cant get goid pictures because of my implants.
Avatar n tn I have a friend who was diagnosed with breast cancer. Between the time she was diagnosed and had a lumpectomy the tumors had doubled in size. She had positivee and negative nodes. A couple of weeks later she had a port put in then soon after started chemo once every 3 weeks for a several months. She was suppose to have a month off before she started radiation.
Avatar f tn No problem, I figured that. Now comes the SCARY!! There is increased blood flow in the breast tissue. In the right breast lower inner quadrant at 3 o' clock is an Irregular, Lobulated, Hypodense nodule, 0.6 x 0.9 cm. The nodule is Isointense with the glandular tissue on T1 and slightly Hyperintense on T2. Post Gadolinium study showed time-intensity Kinetic Curve of Type 3 with peak of enhancement on early injection & tendency to delayed washout of enhancement.
Avatar n tn Of course that was the first question I was going to ask .... glad you explained and I certainly understand why you would put your own problems on the back burner. I hope your son is responding to treatment and does well. Now on to your problem ... if you have no other breast symptoms aside from the pain I'm not sure how you should proceed . I would wait for the results of the mammogram; there may be more investigation recommended.
Avatar f tn Hello I had the mri guided biopsy and yes you have to lie down on same table like you are having the breast mri, only they compress your breast alittle more. They will numb you and leave your breast compress throughout the whole procedure. Mine took appx 2 1/2 hrs to complete. but you are in and out of the mri machine while they are lining everything up. It is not that painful at all during or after (the numbing needle is the worst pain you will have and even that is not bad)...
Avatar n tn Hi everyone, can someone give me some feedback, I had mammo, was told right breast assymetry was notes, had ultrasound, nothing noted, had spot compression, they could not clarify. I was sent for MRI, recd these results, The breast tissue demonstrates moderate to marked background enhancement which may limit sensitivity. Evaluation is slightly limited due to motion artifact.
