I have one that is going to be followed up in six months with ultrasound. I am very afraid it's something else. The breast surgeon and the radiologist think no biopsy is necessary at this time.

I’d trust the response you got on the Interpreting Your Report thread.

LCIS, extensive sclerosing adenosis, TAH/BSO & partial omentectomy for mucinous borderline ovarian tumor.

I understand your fears. I was misdiagnosed with a fibroadenoma. No less than 8 doctors agreed that it was most certainly a fibroadenoma. Guess what? All 8 of them were wrong! This was at a large teaching hospital. Nothing showed as a problem on mammogram or ultrasound. The doctors wanted to wait and watch. I insisted on a lumpectomy. Boy was the surgeon shocked when it turned out to be a malignant phyloides tumour with DCIS and LCIS all within the same lump. Nearly everyone with a phyloides tumour is initially diagnosed with a fibroadenoma. So as someone who has actually been there, I would highly recommend you at least get a needle biopsy. I wouldn't wait 6 months. Fibroadenomas and phyloides grow very large and very fast! Sorry to disagree with Melissa, but I would not trust the reponse you got on the other thread.

I was told it was a fibroadenoma, we watched it and measured it for a few years. It began growing rapidly, when it was removed it was a Hamartoma.
