Does being diagnosed with Malignant Neoplasm of the left breast mean I have breast cancer?
Hi, I hope this can help. The screening of mammogram isn’t perfect, lately experts say some women with early breast cancer diagnosed by mammogram may never have affected their health. That’s why your doctors both of them suggest to wait a year. And, this false positive occurs more frequently in women aged 40-50.
The mammogram that I had done in October 2018 showed a 3mm lump. On my new referral that I just got to get another mammogram this month shows
 “diagnoses: Malignant Neoplasm”  could you please give me some idea of what I should expect and or what to do, PLEASE
Hi Ms. Hairston, as you know malignant neoplasm means cancer, surgical resection is recommended in this case, then you will wait for the postoperative pathological results for further evaluation and treatment. The lump is small, trust your doctors.
You will have a general follow-up of 3-6 months in the first year after surgery. Try to relax,unless you are not sure if there is a breast lumps again,see your doctor early.

Was diagnosed with imflamatory breast cancer that also went into my lymph nodes in my arm pit area. Had chemo, surgery and radiation treatments. What is the prognosis for future with this type of cancer?
If there is no metastasis, postoperative survival is similar to other types of breast cancer, and the five-year survival rate is about 80-90%.

So does that mean you have 5 years or more? And can it return?
I have secondary malignant neoplasm of left breast.  Had radiation treatment in summer 2018 (25 treatments).
Now the "bumps" are back 6 months later.  Will have PET/CT scan next week.  I am very concerned that radiation did nothing.
Have you tested your gene? I have a BRCA 1 gene, a specialist said that means insensitive to certain chemo drug.
Your doctor will make a suitable treatment plan for you, leave the unhappy thing behind, focus on the future.
Do I need to have this check so often it's been 8 years
You've had malignant neoplasm for 8 years and you're still okay? Did you have it detected at an early stage and removed by surgery? What did your oncologist say?
how long can you live if you dont get treatment
Malignant neoplasm? A couple of months to a couple of years.
I was diagnosed with Malignant Neoplasm Of upper outer quadrant of right breast as of 12:2019, currently under going chemo treatment and then surgery with radiation afterward, so you are saying women do not live long with this type of cancer.
I think Felix means that if you do nothing with malignant neoplasm, you can only survive a few years at best. However, if you get best treatment, the thing may be different. And it also depends on the size, type and the stage of your tumor. I got malignant neoplasm in my right breast on May 2019. It's stage 2. The tumor is smaller than 2cm. And the doctor said it didn't mean I should give up hopes. In fact the survival rate in this stage is still as high as about 93%. I took chemo and radiation therapies. And now I've almost recovered from this, though still need to go back to do some tests. So don't give up hopes. You still have a great chance to survive if it's not metastatic.
Do I need to remove a whole kidney if I have this cancer?
It depends on the stage and location. In stage 3-4 the whole kidney has to be removed.
My daughter had this test today. Her numbers were a little high, but so were a couple others, but she is 3 months pregnant so some of the elevated numbers were to be expected...she always knew she was borderline anemic, ....any helpful info is appreciated. I'm sure that if the numbers were concerning yo the doctor she would call...!!??
Hello Karen, I'm willing to chime in if you'd like share the test items and values. But yes, if the numbers are concerning her doctor she will definately call. It can't be harmful to get a second opinion, though.
