Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
Most likely a negative 3D mammogram & USG will pick up at least 95 % of IBC , however in your situation with dense large breasts I would suggest you may get a MR mammogram , especially if you have a family history of breast carcinoma.
Keep a watch for any discharge from the nipple , which can be check for malignant cells by a pathologist if required.
Are you married / sexually active currently?
Have you breast fed your kids , if so for how many years old patient??
Kindly reply as a follow up,
Patient replied :
My mother had breast cancer at 52, nobody else in her family or on my dad's side. She had a mass removed and underwent chemo and is still alive 20 years old patientlater. My main question is really should I feel pretty confident in the tests I had? The radiologist felt very confident in her findings. My dr thinks I should feel confident in them especially since I really had no symptoms except one larger breast that had always been larger. I only noticed it was hanging lower, don't remember noticing that before. They feel it's aging. I am married 20 years old patientonly been with him and have 6 kids, breast fed 3, 1 for 1 year 2 months.ye
Yes considering your marital and obstetric history, I would not worry at all .
Just do a breast self examination every week & get a mammogram done every six months considering your moms history.
As of now, i can assure there is nothing to worry about.
Wish u good health always
