I found a lump about 3 weeks ago and went to the doctor. She told me it was probably a fibroidadenoma and sent me for a mammogram and ultrasound just in case. Ultrasound found that my left breast has a lot of cysts, they saw the lump that I can feel plus another solid mass I can't feel. I was feeling ok about the first one because it's a round, smooth circle and it moves a lot. My results for this new lump that I didn't know about don't sound so promising. Here are my ultrasound results. The thing that stands out the most is nonparellel because everything I read says that's almost always cancer. Of course the tech told me not to worry because of my age and because both masses have smooth edges, but all I can do is worry.
I also sprained my ankle yesterday so now I have a biopsy while in a walking boot and a huge event for my business this weekend. So it's been a great week already so far.
BREAST COMPOSITION: The breasts are heterogeneously dense, which may
obscure small masses.
FINDINGS: A dominant mass is identified in the posterior central left
breast on the MLO projection which is just lateral to the nipple level
on the craniocaudal view. A smaller mass is suggested more superiorly
at the same depth on the MLO projection. Margins are predominantly
obscured. Correlation with ultrasound is recommended for further
evaluation of both masses. No mass or distortion is identified in the
right breast. No suspicious microcalcifications are present. CAD is
High-resolution ultrasound was performed throughout the left breast to
include the areas of clinical and mammographic concern. The palpable
lump in the lateral breast corresponds to a solid hypoechoic mass with
gently lobulated contours, parallel orientation and smooth margins.
The mass measures 2.4 x 2.3 x 1.1 cm. There is a second solid mass at
the 12:00 position which measures 9 mm in greatest diameter. The
smaller mass has nonparallel orientation and smooth borders. Biopsy of
both lesion should be performed for tissue diagnosis. Several
benign-appearing cysts in the left breast measuring up to 1.8 cm at
the 11:00 position.
Right breast: BI-RADS Category 1: Negative
Left breast: BI-RADS Category 4: Suspicious findings
