I have been on antibiotics for 10 days now and it's still there, if I hold it between my fingers it's not a round lump but rather flattish and miss shaped, do you think this calls for concern?
Hi - What does your doctor say? If you've discussed the (remote) possibility of inflammatory breast cancer with him/her, and feel comfortable with the reply, then carry on. If you're not comfortable, ask for a referral for a second opinion. IBC is often very hard to diagnose; and really, it's all about how much you trust your doctor to be doing the right tests to diagnose what this issue is. Good luck - PJH
I saw my doctor yesterday after the ultrasound, the radiologist suggested I see a dermatologist as the mark might be something else. It measures 12.6mm X 12.9mm and is 2.6mm thick. He says there is however a large vein which runs immediately below the lesion superficially in the subcutaneous layer, not sure what this all means. Prominent lymph node is present in left axilla measuring 21.9mm in long axis and 8.7mm in short axis, don't know if that is normal.
My doctor asked one of the other doctors for a second opinion he suggested she rather remove it and send it to a lab.
Could you please tell me what you make of this ultrasound.
I also thought this is best, I cannot let this go and be concerned everyday. I have been getting funny pains in my breast since Tuesday, it's like a prick in my nipple area, so I will rather have it removed and play it safe, my mother died from cancer at the age of 34 so I'd rather have it done although it wasn't breast cancer. Thank you so much for your input in helping.
