    Benign!

    After my last MRI I had to have a biopsy. 4.5 hours later (included a broken machine, blown out veins, etc.) I was ready to wait for the results. Yay! It was benign, a fibroadenoma. I hope I can limit the scanxiety next time.

      I'm so sorry, PaulineJ! I had a year of treatment which just ended a few months before this test, so I had already gone through the "cancer wringer."

      Good news! I went through something similar last year, being three years out at the time. Found a small lump, had an ultrasound; radiologist said it was a hamartoma and benign. Nurse practitioner for my oncologist said "not so fast" so had a biopsy as well. It is a hamartoma, benign even though it is very sensitive to touch and is often painful. The waiting and wondering is excruciating. I've had so many issues like this that have turned out to be nothing, but the process gets old. Hope this is the last you have to deal with such issues.
