Cystic Lesion In Breast
No: Fibroadenomas are the most common breast tumor. Excision is not necessary unless there are features that would suggest a rare variant of fibroadenomas, called phyllodes tumors. Despite this, some women will still opt for excision due to the size of the tumor and/or fear surrounding constantly feeling a lump in one's breast. If reassurance fails, the surgery itself is quite minimal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Needs investigation: Although breast calcifications may not necessarily mean cancer, pleomorphic calcifications are suspicious. A biopsy should be done. Talk to your doctor. Pleomorphism means that something is of varying shape and characteristics. A non-cancerous or benign calcification will be read as "benign-appearing". Don't delay your biopsy. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
A baseline 3D mammo states breasts are heterogenously dense which may obscure small masses. A focal asymmetry noted in right upper breast. Worry?
A mammographic: Focal asymmetry on a baseline mammogram(assuming no suspicious features) is usually further evaluated with ultrasound. If the ultrasound demonstrates nothing suspicious, the focal asymmetry is, according to ACR BIRADS classification, a category 3 probably benign finding(less than 2% chance of malignancy). Short interval(6 months) follow up is the typical recommendation. ...Read more

Multiple possible: Hi. If you have a genetic risk for breast cancer (e.g., one of the BRCA gene mutations, and other genes too), multifocal breast cancer is more likely than in sporadic cases of breast cancer. Overall, multifocal breast cancer at the time of diagnosis is uncommon. Given your age of 25, I would lean heavily toward suspecting a genetic form of breast cancer. Evaluate ALL breast lumps. Good luck! ...Read more

In complete assessment. Scattered fibroglandular elements in both breast that could obscure a lesion on mammography?
That is an: assessment of breast density, required to be included in the mammogram report in many states. It doesn't imply there is anything abnormal. The denser the breast, the less sensitive the mammogram is for detecting cancers. There are 4 density categories, A(least dense), B, C, and D(most dense). Yours would be considered a B by definition, therefore your breasts would not be considered "dense". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Would metastatic cervical cancer in the breast appear the same as breast cancer on mammogram and ultrasound?
Possibly on imaging: Cervical cancer (the tissue at the end of the vaginal canal) rarely metastasizes to the breast. Rather breast cancer may metastasize to many areas of body, such as bone, lung, brain, lymph nodes. That being said, any abnormal growth in the breast, though mostly breast tissue, could look similarly by mammogram or ultrasound. The bottom line is if there is an abnormality, must be biopsied. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
