Women 30 yo. No cancer in family. Breast echo showing two well defined hypoechoic solid nodules, 2 axilla ganglions (1,74*0,6+1,48 *0,6). What is this?

Uncertain: Ultrasounds of the breast are good for telling solid from cystic masses but other than ruling out a cyst, don't tell you what a mass is. Further testing and a possible biopsy are necessary in order to do that. With your history, breast cancer is unlikely but not impossible. Hope this helps. ...Read more
