My mother has a lump on her breast. She underwent a biopsy. In the biopsy report, it came as benign. Another test showed that she has stage 3 breast cancer (she has no symptoms) and the doctor advised us for a mastectomy. The doctor recommended us to do some tests such as blood count, breast X-ray, and ultrasound. The results came normal (there is no mass lesion present, and there is no metastasis seen). Is there any confirmatory test available to find breast cancer?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I can understand your concern. The only way to confirm breast cancer is through a tissue biopsy. It is better to repeat a biopsy. There are other investigations like a mammogram, CT Scan and tumor markers, which can help to detect breast cancer.
