Okay, then this doesn't correspond to breast cancer.

Very unlikely or almost impossible to have a node in this area from a recurrent breast cancer.

I know that I want to know if this could be cancer
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Doctor said it was unusually to have node in this area
Health Professional: Dr. Sohaib, Doctor replied 3 months ago

The biopsy may be indicated for other reasons like for evaluation of the enlarged lymph node (depending upon its size).

But a cancerous lymph nodes in this region from the breast should give lymph nodes first in the chest and neck.

Health Professional: Dr. Sohaib, Doctor replied 3 months ago

But to clear any doubts, may be a biopsy can give the answer.

But I would rather do a mammogram and CT of the chest first, before deciding a biopsy for this area.

No, it can give a hint, but can not give a conclusive answer.

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Would you recommend a biopsy then
Health Professional: Dr. Sohaib, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Because you are thinking of breast cancer recurrence, that's why the best answer will come from ct chest

Honestly, doesn't look like related to breast cancer.

Esophageal cancer can be detected by endoscopy more reliably than lymph node.
