My mom went for her yearly Mammogram last week and came back with a dense area and they wanted her to follow up with another Mammogram of that
location and an ultrasound. The follow up Mammogram today still showed the spot and believed it was a cyst and during the Ultrasound he said he it doesn't have characteristics of anything bad looking but also doesn't have characteristics of something just being benign, it's basically stuck in the middle. So they ordered a biopsy and suppose to meet with the Dr. tomorrow to schedule it with the surgeon and determine what type of biopsy should be done. They said the surgeon will also look at the images and films to help determine if he thinks its anything more worrisome.
It's very nerve racking and I feel so horrible for my mom and I just wanted to know if anyone else had this type of experience or if its common for a Ultrasound not to be able to tell if it's a Cyst or not. From things I've read is an Ultrasound is what's used to pick up a Solid or a Liquid filled mass but this came out undetermined.
Any advise is appreciated.
