Breast Cancer

Benign intramammary lymph nodes

03/03/2009

Question:

This is what I have been diagnosed with benign intrammary lymph nodes. I have to go back for a (6) month mammogram and ultrasound. Is this very serious?

Answer:

Thank you for visiting NetWellness. On this site, we try to answer general questions about but cannot diagnose or recommend treatment. You appear to have some very, very specific questions about your treatment plan, which can only be answered properly by a physician who is familiar with your history, physical exam, and test results.

Your questions about the testing results you've been given or the risks, benefits, and alternatives for proposed treatments of this condition need to be directed to your treating physician(s). You should insist that they answer these questions in a way that you are able to understand before consenting to any treatment. If your physician is unable to help you understand these issues, you should get a second opinion. Take care.
