Rest easy: A mass in the breast can be a sign of cancer. However, fibrocystic masses in the breast are common and are benign. Your sonogram will give you good information on what it could possibly be. rest easy until the sonogram results are in.

No it doesn't MEAN..: ..cancer. Fibroids in the breast do not transform into CA. Women with fibrocystic breasts do have an elevated risk toward breast CA compared to women without but that's worlds away from being able to diagnose breast CA on the basis of their presence. I am concerned, however, for your history of up to 7 drinks/week and I believe that signals potential bigger issues than your fibroids. Plz consider.

Do you mean: fibroadenomas? They are common benign tumors, many women have multiple fibroadenomas. They are not cancerous, nor do they increase the risk of cancer.
