Nie-gevaarlike knop. 10mm in deursnee

Dr het gese dit is nie kwaadaardig nadat dun-naald biopsie van selle gedoen is. Intussen 2 persone naby my wat sê  hulle het ook nie-gevaarlike knoppe gehad en op die einde was dit kanker. Die 1 vriendin het ' n mastektomie gekry, kanker het nie verspei. (38). Man se tante is ook gese die knop is nie kwaadaardig in 2006, Mei 2008 baie pyn gehad, kanker in bors en in 11 van 13 kliere onder arm. Ek was Sept 2008 vir mamogram waar my knop gesien is en die dun-naald biopsie gedoen is met uitslag, nie kwaadaardig. Het die dr nou gevra hoe seker kan ons wees dat dit nie kwaardaardig kan raak nie. Hy gaan nou '  dikker-naald, weefsel biopsie doen. Is ek net oor sensitief?

Hi Ronel,

you do not metion how old you are. A lump in the breast should always be diagnosed completely. An FNA (=fynnaalaspirasie), which apparently you had, has an accuracy of about 85 - 95%, depending who does it and who looks at it. The approach of your doctor, to do a needle core biopsy (diknaaldbiopsie) is right; in a good breast centre in concordance with European practice the core biopsy will be done under ultrasound guidance to demonstrate the needle in the lesion; 4 - 6 cores are taken. Under these conditions the accuracy is about 98% or more.

Best regards

Ek het ook 'n fynnaaldbiopsie ondergaan al 4 jaar gelede, dit was kankervry. Ek is nou 39 en sukkel met kliere in my nek wat swel. Antibiotika neem die seer weg en die swelling sak, maar dit herhaal. Kan die nie-kanker weefsel in bors iets te doen he met met die nekkliere?
