This is Dr. David
I am glad the mammogram showed all ok.
why did you see a breast consultant? who sent you to see this breast consultant?
is this a surgeon?
if there was any worry, I would do a breast ultrasound and a breast MRI scan first before doing any biopsy.
I am sorry that this consultant is worrying you.
you need to stop reading the internet.
I am a cancer doctor.
is she a surgeon?
I would recommend a breast MRI scan if there is any concern.
surgeons like to do surgery to make money.
if there is nothing abnormal on mammogram or ultrasound, you probably don't need a biospy.
ask her to order you a breast MRI scan if there is a concern.
that is not a worry.
lipomas are not cancerous.
I am not concerned.
so why is this surgeon pushing to do a biopsy?
do you have any other questions?
firm glandular tissue is normal.
if you are still having your periods, you still have estrogen in your body
and estrogen will cause firm glandular tissue.
it is up to you
you can have a surgical biopsy if you want to, but I bet it will be benign.
the procedure will most likely worsen your anxiety
and be expensive without much benefit.
then you should get an MRI scan of your breast.
that can tell more if there is a likely breast cancer.
you don't need a surgical biopsy
but it is up to you if you want to get it.
it is normal for one breast to be larger than the other
that is not a sign of cancer.
it sounds like you are going through early menopause
if your periods are starting to become irregular
and firmer is ok as well
no you shouldn't worry.
I have told you you shouldn't worry
I don't think you need the biopsy.
I think the surgeon is preying on you with your high anxiety.
your doctor is not worried.
get a breast MRI scan.
I would bet $1000 you don't have breast cancer.
I think she is trying to make money off of you and your insurance
the mammogram and ultrasound would have showed something.
you don't have to worry about breast cancer
let me know if you have other questions.
