I have a mild yet noticeable breast asymmetry that started fairly recently. Is there any way I can correct this without surgery?

Breast mass: When one breast is appearing different from the other there are many possible causes such as breast cyst, mass, tumor, infection and gynecomastia which is benign tissue growth. An examination by a doctor and imaging with ultrasound or mammogram would be appropriate. Only after a cause is found can one decide if treatment such as surgery would be appropriate. Good Luck! ...Read more

Just got a mammogram finding of a 1.7 CM focal asymmetry in the 6:00 to 6:30 axis of the left breast. What does this mean?

Just got a mammogram finding of a 1.7 CM focal asymmetry in the 6:00 to 6:30 axis of the left breast. What does this mean?

A focal asymmetry: is not a mass, it is an area of tissue that stands out from the normal symmetrical distribution of breast tissue. 6:00-6:30 is the position in the breast, as if the breast were a clock face looking from the front. Since the asymmetry is a potential abnormality, you will probably need extra mammo views and maybe ultrasound to sort it out. 80% of the time this turns out to be nothing of concern. ...Read more

What does it mean if a new focal asymmetry on screening mammogram "flattened into benign pattern" on diagnostic mammogram? I have very dense breasts.

What does it mean if a new focal asymmetry on screening mammogram "flattened into benign pattern" on diagnostic mammogram?  I have very dense breasts.

No abnormality: It generally means that the original appearance on the screening mammogram was due to a coincidental overlapping of normal breast structures, causing the false appearance of a possible abnormality. On the diagnostic images,the overlapping structures spread out and look normal again, proving that the original "abnormality" was not real. A true mass would not flatten or spread out on the diag mammo ...Read more
