BI-RADS 4 Hypoechoic mass with increased flow
Good morning, yall! This is my first post and I've been doing lots of research because that's what I do when I'm anxious. For well over a year, I've gotten random spots on my breasts that become abscessed. I'm terrible about being proactive on medical care so I've ignored it, figuring it's from a bra rubbing wrong or something but it continued to happen, even in areas that aren't getting 'friction'. I finally went to the doctor and they treated me for internal staph infection, which didn't help. The doctor then ordered a diagnostic mammogram with ultrasound, which is my first mammogram. I am 41 years old. I've received my report on my health portal and follow up with my doctor on Tuesday, which suddenly feels so far away. I'm sure he'll just go over results and order a biopsy.
Technique: Limited directed ultrasound of left breast was performed
Findings: At the 6:00 position of the left breast in the superficial subcutaneous skin there is a elongated hypoechoic area with increased flow measures 3.9 cm in length by 4.7 mm in thickness.
Impression: Consider further evaluation with biopsy of the superficial hypoechoic mass with increased flow left breast at 6:00 position.
My mammogram report read the same pretty much with added Assessment: BI-RADS Category 4 Consider further evaluation with biopsy.
Is anyone familiar with a report like this? I've read many others, which seem much more specific. I'm thankful it's just the one spot, which is the area that is currently abscessed, but naturally, I'm now a bit anxious about it.
