REASON FOR EXAM: N63.0 - Unspecified lump in unspecified breast
COMPARISON: 3/28/2022, 1/15/2008
FINDINGS: Ultrasound left breast.
There is an irregular shaped hypoechoic mass 2 o'clock 2 cm from the nipple on ultrasound at a depth of 2 cm probably
corresponding to the mammographic finding. Lesion is 15 x 10 x 11 mm.


A second hypoechoic ill-defined lesion at 2 o'clock 4 cm from the nipple at a depth of 1 cm is 7 x 3 x 7 mm without a
distinct mammographic correlate.


There is a small nodule medially which is fairly smooth, not taller than wide, and mixed echogenicity measuring 6 x 3 x 6

the palpable and more significant mammographic findings. Patient has had a previous biopsy in 2008 showing a complex
sclerosing lesion.

Dear worriedinsd,

Welcome to the BCO community. We are sorry that this lump has brought you here. We are glad that you reached out for support and information. Waiting for results is the worst stressor. Everyone here can identify with that. Here is a link to a topic entitled Interpreting your report.There is a link in the OP's initial post that might be helpful. djmammo is a radiologist who has volunteered his time in the past to help answer questions. He is not presently active but you might find some help in this topic nonetheless. It is worth taking a look while waiting for others to offer their experiences. Please keep us posted on what you learn and how we can all be a help to you here.

Waiting sucks! No doubt about it. Try to distract yourself the best you can. Peace of mind will come after you get the biopsy result. It's impossible to know from an ultrasound what a biopsy will say, if it was possible we wouldn't need biopsies. :)

Worried - Parakeetsrule is correct. Most of the time imaging alone is not sufficient to determine whether or not you have something to deal with. The good news - you are proactive in watching your health and the radiologist coded this as 4A which means you have about an 85% chance that all these areas are benign. Try to distract yourself (and hubby) while you wait for the results. These can be the hardest days, I know. But try your best to focus on other things and not to go down the "what if" rabbit hole.

One thing you may consider since you seem to have busy breasts. You may want an MRI to establish a baseline. Especially since you have some scarring in there from a previous biopsy. Wishing you all my best for completely benign results.

Thank you everyone for the kind words at 5 pm yesterday we got the word that it was a benign thank goodness. The said it's fiber something I can't remember the exact wording but they said they want to follow up in six months just to make sure everything is good. I burst into tears when they said it benign.
