I am 43 years old and have been recently told my adenocarcinoma (originated in my thyroid at age 16) has returned. I am in the middle of biopsies and testing to see what and where this is. I was told by my ENT that I should do a mammogram and an EGD (stomach scope) to get some answers. I received my report for the mammogram and wondered if any of you knew what this means? (waiting for my dr and as many of you know...it's frustrating. He's out of town for TWO WEEKS!)
TISSUE DENSITY: Scattered (25-50% fibroglandular tissue) FINDINGS: On the left, there is a rounded focal asymmetry in the upper outer quadrant. On the left, there is an asymmetry in the superior posterior breast seen only on the mediolateral oblique view. There are no suspicious microcalcifications or areas of distortion. ASSESSMENT: BI-RADS category 0, incomplete. Additional imaging is required.
Impression: 1. Right breast with no evidence of malignancy. 2. Left breast with rounded focal asymmetry in the upper outer quadrant and asymmetry in the superior posterior breast. Recommend spot compression views and true lateral views. Examination: Recommend additional imaging on the left. Assessment: BI-RADS code 0 incomplete need additional imaging.
Any ideas? I already have the cancer diagnosis, so that's not going to flip me out, just wanting to research and go to appointments ready for what is next.
