Hi Sue, please have a look at this fabulous website founded by women who have had/have lobular bc. https://lobularbreastcancer.org.uk/monitoring/ especially at this bit: "If your tumour was missed on mammogram or the full extent was not seen, you may want to ask for on-going annual MRI monitoring too. To help you with this ask, we have produced a template letter for you, containing some of the latest scientific evidence about lobular and MRIs, to send to your medical team if you wish to ask for this monitoring in the future. The letter can be downloaded here and please contact us if you have any further questions or concerns about this." You can email them for advice, they're very responsive! Also, MRI does not use radiation, but strong magnetic fields: there are no side-effects from the scan, but there may be from the contrast agent. Sorry to keep it so brief. I'm off on a holiday tomorrow morning after finally finishing my 3 week rt course, hooray! All the best!!
