Hello -

The radiology report suggests a benign finding - and suggests routine imaging followup.

Did your doctor disagree with the radiology report?

Thanks for your response. What is benign finding. She will meet him Thursday

Benign means not-cancer.

The fact that they placed this in the Category 2: Benign -- essentially means that the MRI shows no evidence that these look like cancer. Meaning essentially 0 percent chance that this is cancer.

They mention the lesions are smooth (cancers would be irregular), the lesions are bright on T2 imaging (cancer would look different), and has slow uptake (cancer would absorb the contrast quickly).

So, there are no characteristics that would be consistent with breast cancer.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

If it was rated a category 4,5, or 6 -- this would require further diagnosis with surgical biopsy.

But a biopsy is never done with Category 1 or 2, because there is no concern for cancer.
