An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

I had a black spot on my breast, it was itchy so I scratched it then it became like a pimple. I squeezed it then white pus came out then black pus?
Blackhead: It sounds like you had a clogged pore or blackhead. When you scratched it, the bacteria normally on your skin were able to make their way underneath and cause a mild infection. This was the white pus that you noted. If it does not resolve completely, you should see your doctor. A picture is always helpful when trying to diagnose a skin problem. ...Read more

Examination: You need to be examined to determine next course of action. Black spot may represent many things, skin tag, scab, mole, etc. For ex, a Nevi/mole may warrant biopsy by a dermatologist. ...Read more
I have red spot on my right breast that has been there for a month. It has a black spot in the middle. Dr says could be an abcess. How can I get rid?
2 weeks ago on inside of breast toward chest wall, I saw a pimple-like bump w/ tiny black spot. It has grown, there is a small open hole in the middle?
Small red spot on breast with a small black spot in middle a little swollen I just started my period should I be worried?
Concern: Is warranted. There are a surprising number of breast structures that can get infections. They grow. If treated while the area is small, you don't even need slight poking of the area and antibiotics treat it. If a bit larger can require opening the area with a needle (popping a pimple), larger still can require minor surgery and leave a scar. Really bad can require hospitalization. ...Read more

Breast Ultrasound: Part of the examination usually includes an ultrasound Color Doppler evaluation, which is an assessment for the presence/absence and pattern of blood flow. This is displayed as blue or red on the screen depending on the direction of the blood flow. It does not necessarily imply anything abnormal. ...Read more
The reported: Sensitivities for ultrasound in detecting cancer vary, generally 60-80%, so ultrasound can detect breast cancers, but like any test, it is not 100%. A complete workup might include mammography, physical exam, and in some cases MRI. Talk to your doctor about your concerns. If you are talking about a mass that is actually within the chest cavity, not the breast, breast US won't help. ...Read more
"Lump": Is a finding on physical examination, not an ultrasound descriptor, so I'm not sure what it means. In what context is that term being utilized in the report? ...Read more
MRI is more complete: And looks for cancer. It is 100 percent sensitive if they use a 3t MRI scanner. It also has fairly high accuracy and specificity when a 3t scanenr is used. U.S looks with sound and is less sensitive for cancer and usually inconclusive in the case of cancer. I have a case of 6 breast tumors missed by ultrasound. ...Read more
Not very painful: Unless you have an underlying problem such as an infection or trauma, an ultrasound of the breast should not be more painful than a light massage. A probe combined with a special gel is used to look at the tissues. A mammogram can be painful to some since the breast is pressed between the x-ray ...Read more
Cyst?: This could be bening cysts. However you should have your dr either do fna for pathology or close surveillance. ...Read more
Yes.: While some patients will need blood work or to alter their current medication regimen prior to a biopsy, most could have it performed the same day as the ultrasound. Frequently they are not done the same day because of scheduling and/or billing logistics, not from a medical necessity. ...Read more

Just had a breast ultrasound and it says 3cm FN. What does the FN stand for. I will be following up with my Doc but can't get in until next week. Ta?
Fibroadenoma.: It stands for fibroadenoma, a relatively common benign breast nodule. Ultrasound cannot really make a definitive histologic diagnosis (that would require biopsy), but if all of the sonographic features are present, ultrasound can predict it with a high degree of probability. This could be followed up at 6 month intervals, or undergo needle biopsy if a more immediate diagnosis is desired. ...Read more

Breast nodule or a cyst? I just had a breast ultrasound and was first told they saw a nodule, but then later said is probably a cyst and that it may have even exploded. What does this all mean? What is the difference between a nodule and a cyst?
Shadows/echos: A nodule looks solid on ultrasound (us) and a cyst is fluid filled. Depending on the machine quality and technician performing the exam, they can be difficult to distinguish. In these cases the radiologist will often come in the room to take a look or perform the exam. A 3-6 month repeat us is usually advised or you can ask for a biopsy. If you are worried, find a breast surgeon to evaluate you. ...Read more
