Radioloically occult: Most breast cancers that are large enough to feel should be visible at mammography and/or ultrasound.There are several conditions that can cause lumps that are non-cancerous, such as fibrocystic condition, lipoma, prominent fat lobules, etc. Rarely, breast cancer can remain undetected by mammography and ultrasound.If you're still concerned, consider Breast MRI, second opinion or possibly biopsy.
