Diagnosis of multiple myeloma in Germany

Question:

Hello,
my sister in ’32 she recently was diagnosed with multiple myeloma.
Prior to this, she is 3 years old were treated with renal insufficiency only when it started to hurt very badly paid attention and took a bone marrow analysis.
Tell me what to do and what are our chances?

Аnswer:

We will be happy to help organize a diagnosis, consultation and treatment in Germany, your sister with our professors oncologists.
To concretize the proposal, please provide us with your sister’s case history (medical records)
Maybe (?) Would make sense to get a prior written advice from our oncologist, MD, chief physician of the Institute University Hospital of Munich. But for that he would need a full set of its documents.

Examination was accomplished in standard projections: straight and oblique. The mammary glands are symmetrical.
The areolas are output at a contour. The skin is not thickened, not condensed. The bands of fibrous tissue – Cooper’s ligaments are left from the skin. The premammary space is not constricted. A tissue of the mammary gland is presented in central and lateral areas by the glandular tissue, in medial by adipose and line diffuse fibrosis in all quadrants. The density of both breasts has the 2nd grade.
At this background of pathological masses, no micro calcinations are detected
Single micro calcifications are visualized on the border of inferior quadrants of the left breast.
A vascular grid is well defined.

For the period from May till November felt changes in hormone therapy, climate changes (lived in Uzbekistan in summer).
St. localis: The mammary glands are symmetrical, and the regular color. The skin is not condensed under them. A mass of rounded form with solid non-crushing consistency and unconsolidated with surrounding tissues till 2 sm is palpated in the upper-internal quadrant of the left breast. Palpation is without pain. The axillary lymph nodes are not palpated.
Breast ultrasound: The mammary glands are placed typically; the skin is without any changes. The differentiation of tissues is expressed in both breasts. The correlation of adipose and glandular tissue: 1/3.
The Galactophorous ducts are thickened a little in both breasts till 2.0-2.1 mm. Cooper’s ligaments are not thickened and not expanded.
A dimensional, massive, hypo echoic and avascular mass of oval form 17.4×10.3 mm, which has calcinations in the center is located in the left breast in the upper-internal quadrant. No areas of pathological vascularizations. The regionary lymph nodes are not increased.

Impression: Ultrasonic signs of moderate diffuse changes of both breasts by the type of glandular mastopathy. Signs of dimensional mass of the left breast (fibro adenoma?). Biopsy of the pathological mass of the left breast is recommended.

HYSTOLOGY EXAMINATION

Tissue labeling, number of objects: №1 – biopsy of the tumor of the left breast.
Clinical diagnosis: Malignized tumor of the left breast.
Macroscopic description: 4308-01, 02 – two (2) grey color bands with brown areas and with the length of 1.7 sm each.

Mammography

Examination was accomplished in oblique views. The mammary glands are symmetrical and not deformed. The skin is not thickened, not condensed.
The bands of fibrous tissue – Cooper’s ligaments are left from the skin. The premammary space is not constricted.
A tissue of the mammary gland is mainly presented by glandular tissue, in medial areas by adipose tissue and line diffuse fibrosis in all quadrants.
High intensity without clear contours of rounded mass till 18 mm in diameter, which is located retromammary, containing single polymorph micro calcinations is revealed at this background on the border of internal quadrant of the left breast. Behind the mass, a single line calcination is visualized. Abnormality of architectonic of structured picture of the central part of the left breast due to stroma deformation is revealed. A vascular grid is well defined.
No abnormalities of the lymphatic flow on the left and on the right.
IMPRESSION: ACR1 is for the right and ACR4 is for the left breast. X-ray signs of dimensional mass of the left breast.

MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING BREASTS

Description of the research:
A mass of rounded form with even contours and sizes 16x11x17 mm due to active accumulation of contrast material more on the periphery with washing-out to the 3rd minute is revealed in the left breast in the deep areas of the breast in the upper-internal quadrant. The mass is surrounded by the rich vascular grid.
No pathological changes in the right breast. No areas of accumulation of contrast material in the lymphatic nodes are detected.
No bone destructive changes.
IMPRESSION: MR picture of the left breast damage, probably, having neoplastic nature. Biopsy is recommended to make verifications.
Magnetic resonance tomograph EXCELART Vantage Atlas-X 1,5 T Toshiba

Complaints: for having occasional pain in the breasts and having a tumor-like mass of the left breast.
History of the disease: After self-palpation in April 2012, the patient noted a tumor-like mass for the first time.
General examination: Micromastia. The breasts are asymmetrical in the inferior-internal quadrant of the left breast. Vertically oriented tumor-like mass of the solid consistency with sizes 20-27 mm is palpated (the patient notes enlargement of the tumor after biopsy). No skin symptoms. Regionary lymph nodes are palpated not clear. No nipple discharge.

Differentiated diagnosis: diagnosis is verified. Plan of examination: Mammography.
Treatment: Additional consultation of oncomammologist and chemotherapist for defining indications to have possible neoajuvant chemotherapy.

Рecommendation

Treatment in Germany.
Ideal: treatment in Munich.
