Questions Submitted

  • HI Thanks for the excellent workshop A 54 yr old patient of mine with a history of DCIS right breast in 2010 had a recent finding of a 4 mm solid mass vs complicated cyst on left breast u/s this year - Birads 3- Suggestion is made to repeat u/s in 6 months. Is this a safe approach ? The patient is concerned that she needs followup sooner. Thanks Orly Hermon
