Impossible: to speculate without having the specific MRI features of the masses(e.g. shape, margins, enhancement pattern) to consider. The probability of a cancer depends on the presence or absence of certain features, some masses will have a less than 1 or 2% chance of being a cancer, others will have a very high chance. So, more information is needed. Do you have the report?
