Need sono: Mammo with heterogeneous dense mass needs evaluation as to whether a lesion is hiding in area of density. This can be accomplished by sono or MRI but resolution of density required. The sono can detect a specific region that could be suspicious and require bx.

Yes: You can freeze your freshly pumped breastmilk for up to 3 months. It is best to keep it the back of your freezer to keep it very cold. Some report that if you have a separate deep freezer you may even keep it for longer.

Great stuff!: Breast milk is the perfect food for babies: it has the right balance of fat, sugar, and protein, and it contains other nutrients like iron in small but very digestible amounts. The most unique and irreplaceable part of breast milk is immunity. Milk has antibodies, the tiny immune shields that protect against infections, and that vaccines will promote later in infancy and life.

At times yes...: Fibrocystic breast can have different characteristics- you can feel something that feels like a small "bb", a rock, a pea or just and area of irregular thicness and tenderness. However any new breast finding or change in breast warrants eval by your doctor and possibly mammogram and/or ultrasound. It is important to be assessed- so make an appointment.

What's breast self-exam good for anymore?

Dr. Trachella Johnson foy

Can be helpful: At this time there is much controversy about need for self breast exam. Guidelines recommend against. However, the possibility of you finding a lump or change on your exam can help make a diagnosis of a breast condition- more quickly. Your risk of breast problems should also be a guiding factor. If you are properly taught to do SBE there is no real harm to do them- and may help.
