breast lesion

I had hysterectomy and left-oopherectomy in Jun 2007 due to dermoid cysts on left ovary and multi-fibroids in uterus. I am doing mammography and breast ultrasound annually. This year, the ultra sound captures a lesion measuring 4 mm in the lower quadrant of the left breast. It has a regular oval shaped but dark grey in color. Mammography didn’t capture anything. I have numerous cysts in both breasts which are densed, they all have regular oval shaped and black. Is it possible that I have abnormal solid nodule? Is it hyper-echoic lesion? I hope you can help. Thank you

Suggested Questions And Answer :


Ultrasound report

Hi, An ill defined lesion ( first finding) means that the lesion has no clear outline and Hypoechoic is a term used by Radiologist for a lesion that blocks ultrasound waves and makes a shadow on the ultrasound image. It is always best to call your doctor about interpreting your Ultrasound results especially since Mastitis (infection) has been reported by your radiologist. Your Doctor will have to see you to prescribe an antibiotic to clear the infection. The rest of the findings are just fine and you really shouldn’t be concerned about breast cancer at all. Best wishes..

Suspicious R5/U5 Mass Lesion - Very Worried

Hi, There is really not much to explain about your Mammogram and Ultrasound report. Since you live in New Zealand the wording "R5/U5", is the equivalent of BIRADS categories used by radiologists in the USA and Canada. BIRADS is a quality control system,used by radiologists after interpreting mammograms,ultrasound and MRIs. This system allows radiologist to categorize the findings by numbers.The scores go from 0 to 5.The higher the number the more suspicious is the abnormality. Your BIRADS score is 5, meaning that the mass detected in your right breast is highly suspicious,but only a pathology analysis of the tissue extracted can render a definitive diagnosis. I can understand your concern and I hope that your biopsy results will reveal something other than breast cancer,which sometimes can happen even with a BIRADS score 5. Wishing you all the best...

hypoechoic lesions?

You stated first that these were cysts and if that is true then a 6 month follow-up seems reasonable. I'm not sure why there was no comparison to previous films unless you had this US at a different facility and did not mention that you had previous studies. I might add that this is a very good reason to get your results from your prescribing Physician so that you can receive a complete and detailed explanation of the report. I feel quite certain that if the Radiologist felt that a biopsy was necessary this would be a part of the report as a recommendation. I suggest that you discuss the report with your Dr. for any additional advice.   Regards ....

Radiology Report

A hypoechoic lesion means that the consistency of the lesion is less dense and it appears on the monitor as a dark area.Hypoechoic lesion imply that it's usually a cyst(fluid filled mass or an air filled mass.If the lesion was detected as a solid mass (Hyperechoic) then it would have been of more concern. Your ultrasound test seems okay to me, since no evidence of malignancy was found.Did they give you a BIRADS score about this lump and asked for a follow up at a later date?A mass means a lump that is palpable,a lesion is a lump that is not palpable.I hope that I've been of some help to your questions. Take care..

Ultrasound Results Confusing!!

Hi! I can only share with you my recent experience:  routine yearly screening mammogram done late August which was deemed in need of further evaluation.  Had ultrasound exam done the following week in which two small hypoechoic lesions were found.  This was followed by two ultrasound guided core biopsies which identified intraductal papillomas, usually a benign lesion, but considered "high risk" with need for them to be totally excised for final pathology.  Had the excisions done yesterday and have had minimal discomfort.  Final pathology report will be available in 2-3 days, but my surgeon feels that they are more than likely benign.   The whole process for me was done in a matter of weeks, so very little time to become overly anxious (although 10% of my brain did entertain notions of "what if it is cancer".)  The guided biopsy is a very simple procedure and they do numb your breast with a local anesthetic so not very uncomfortable.   If you want any additional info, feel free to send me a private message and I can give you more detail. I had some very caring and dedicated doctors and nurses who made the whole experience less terrifying and I think it calmed me immensely.  I hope you have the same situation unfold for you!

complications: leg lesions from breast cancer

Hi. Treatment after breast cancer surgery usually entails chemotherapy or hormonal therapy (tamoxifen or aromatase inhibitors).  It will be hard to ascertain the exact nature of these symptoms if we do not know what exactly she is taking.  However, a possibility that I can think of is a condition called deep venous thrombosis, which is a side effect of hormonal treatment (tamoxifen).  This causes obstruction of blood return from the legs causing the legs to swell and sometimes cause skin ulcerations.  I suggest you ascertain the drugs she's currently taking and other symptoms. Wishing your friend all the best.  Regards.

Do atypia lobular hyperplasia regress?

Hi, Atypical Lobular hyperplasia is a precancerous condition that affects cells in the breast. Over the course of your lifetime if the atypical hyperplasia cells keep dividing and become more abnormal, your condition may be reclassified as carcinoma in SITU or noninvasive breast cancer. If you are diagnosed with Atypical Lobular Hyperplasia, do what you can do to reduce your risk of developing breast cancer. Please be mindful that women between the ages of 45 to 55 with atypical hyperplasia have the highest risk. One never knows when cancer can develop….. For this reason doctors recommend close monitoring to determine if the cells are developing into a tumor, which happened in your case. When this happens, it is highly recommended to remove the growth through a wide local excision or lumpectomy (removal of the abnormal tissue along with the edges of the normal surrounding tissue). If you are not sure on how to proceed, you could consult a Breast specialist for a second opinion. For your information, be confident that an excisional biopsy will NOT spread abnormal or cancerous cells. Take care..
