Does "Highly Suggestive of Malignancy" mean stage????? I just read the ultrasound report. I'm having a biopsy on 1-29-20 and am very scared. From the report: IMPRESSION: HIGHLY SUGGESTIVE OF MALIGNANCY

    They won't know the stage until you've had surgery of some sort. Try to take a deep breath and relax, I know it's not easy. Take care and keep us posted.

    Okay, I've calmed down. I don't believe it means stage, but it certainly means malignant. From the report: The 3.4 cm x 3.2 cm x 4 cm oval solid mass in the right breast at 7 o'clock middle depth most likely is carcinoma and is highly suggestive of malignancy. An ultrasound guided biopsy is recommended. The 2 cm round solid mass in the right axilla most likely is an enlarged lymph node and is highly suggestive of malignancy.

    From the report: There is a 3.4 cm x 3.2 cm x 4 cm oval solid mass with a lobulated margin in the right breast at 7 o'clock middle depth 4 cm from the nipple and 0.4 cm from the skin. This oval solid mass is hypoechoic and heterogeneously echogenic with a well-defined boundary, internal echoes, and posterior acoustic enhancement.

    I found a lump in my breast and had the same report, highly suspicious of malignancy, after my ultrasound and mammogram. You will find out the stage after you have a biopsy done, which will be before any needed surgery. I know it is scary and we are here for you.

      As I recall my biopsies didn't give them the stage only the surgical specimen did.
