Breast Ultrasound Report: 1. Fibrocystic changes in both breasts Left > Right. 2. Bilateral non-significant auxiliary lymphadenopathy. Significant?

Looks normal to me

Breast
Such changes are common and considered normal. But why did you have mammogram at this young age? I tis not recommended under 40 years unless you have a suspected problem.

A small black spot on my liver the size of a penny was found during an ultrasound. I'm being sent for an MRI scan but am worried sick?

No

Liver
You should not be worried sick. If it truly is "black" then it is likely a cyst which is benign. If it is kind of black then it is most likely still something benign at your age. Depending on what it looks like, it is certainly reasonable to do the MRI but chances are highly likely that it will be something benign

How is a breast ultrasound done?

Jelly& probe

Chest-breast
Ultrasound operator places some aqueous jelly on the breast & then scans using ultrasound probe, about size of a cany bar. Probe is moved back & forth whilst operator watches a video screen. Jelly is wiped off at end of study. Operator is either a Dr/radiologist, Dr/gynecologist (if trained) or an ultrasound technician & study is reviewed by a Dr.

Does a breast ultrasound have any risks?

No

Breast_ultrasound
Ultrasound uses sound waves to look inside the body (like sonar). It does not expose you to radiation like xrays and CT scans. A breast ultrasound should be a painless test.

Dr. Tito Vasquez answered:

How long does a breast ultrasound take to do?

Not too long

Concern_for_diet_while_breastfeeding
a breast ultrasound usually only takes between 20-40 minutes, but is somewhat operator dependent. An experienced ultrasonographer can be fairly rapid. However it is more important for them to be thorough and experienced rather than quick.

What is the general cost of breast ultrasound?

Varies

Breast_ultrasound
Unfortunately, this is difficult to answer. Costs vary based on city, site/location, practice. Best way to figure that out is either call your insurance agent, or if no insurance- call around and find out who might be the best choice for you. Talk to your physician; at times, they may have information to help you here.

Why do i need mammogram AND a breast ultrasound?

Both are helpful

Cancer
Mammograms use X-ray technique and are better at detecting tiny calcium deposits that may signal an early breast cancer than ultrasound. Mammograms can also detect tumors. Ultrasound uses soundwaves, like sonar, and will help determine if a lump is solid (requiring biopsy) or a cyst (fluid filled & usually not cancer). Both tests work together to find breast cancer.
