April 28 Another 'Thingy' in my Right Breast

This afternoon was my follow up visit with my wonderful surgeon, Dr. Roeder. We made this appointment months ago, to follow up with my MRI and Mammogram. I had the MRI and a chest x-ray on the 14th and the mammogram on the 17th. They sent me home saying the Dr. would let me know about the MRI, and then with an OK on the mammo.
Well.....turned out that they found another 'thingy' in my right breast that they want biopsied.
From the final report: "Nonspecific nodular enhancement centrally with the right breast. An MRI guided core biopsy is recommended".
But wait - there's more -- (tee hee) -- there are lots of words I have never heard of and have no idea what they mean.
"...mild diffuse background parenchymal enhancement bilaterally". "...demonstrates a 5x7 mm region of nonspecific nodular enhancement with indistinct margins of the central aspect of the breast . This nodular region is located approximately 5 cm directly posterior to the nipple and demonstrates an indeterminate type II time intensity curve. No other dominant enhancing nodules are identified in the right breast."
What in the blue blazes does all that mean!!
Well - it means another core needle biopsy, for which I am waiting to be contacted to schedule. They promised me it would not be anything like the five weeks I had to wait for the last MRI guided biopsy, which was a bust because they couldn't find the spot. They think this might be the same area??
Looking for a clean bill of health for me and for all you'alls.
Love to all. Patty : ) : )
