We did her first mammography after surgery and report attached for your review. Please let me know your thoughts. We are yet to meet her oncologist.

Brief Answer:
This is normal

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for sending the report.

This report is pretty much normal. The description fits with postoperative changes, as expected.

So nothing to do now. Next mammogram after 1 yr.

Couple of follow up question.

1. We are little concerned about the fluid collection in her operated breast even after a year since surgery. Is this common or do we need to do anything for this?

2. There is a mentioned about benign lymph nodes in her left breast without any Birads value. Should this be further evaluated with FNAC considering the history?

Brief Answer:
Nothing to worry in this report

Detailed Answer:
This fluid collection is quite normal. It is not of concern.

The lymph nodes have preserved fatty hilum so in all probability are benign. Hence FNAC is not required now.
