Need more info: "cancerous change" can mean many things. There are different pre-cancerous changes seen on breast biopsies, such as ADH (vasopressin) or alh (atypical ductal or atypical lobular hyperplasia). There are early cancers called dcis or lcis (ductal carcinoma in situ or lobular carcinoma in situ). Hopefully this is nothing, but we need more information. Make sure to follow-up with your doctor! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Usually not: "cystic degeneration" usually means that a portion of the tumor has died as a result of its blood supply not always being adequate. If the tumor is troubling you, or if it is growing rapidly, or the radiologist has other concerns, you should consider having it removed or you may be given other options such as embolization. If there are other warnings of cancer, you must have it removed. Good luck. ...Read more
Uncontrolled growth: The smooth muscle that makes up the wall of the uterus begins to grow in an uncontrolled fashion. The separation of a benign tumor (fibroid or leiomyoma) from a malignant tumor (leiomyosarcoma) is the degree of growth, increased growth, and presence of tumor death (necrosis). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

More aggressive: Since triple negative breast cancer cells have no hormone receptors on them, the cancer treatments that attack the cancer through those receptors do not work.

U/S rpt:"Enlarged uterus lobulated contour&multiple uterine fibroids. [email protected] fundus' posterior wall&left fundal wall 3.1cm.Endometrial thickness normal,ovaries obscured byOverlying bowel gas" Any tests/scan/type of surgery recommend?
Fibroids: Are relatively common, and if you are not having any symptoms related to them, probably nothing needs to be done. It sounds like you had a transabdominal ultrasound and your ovaries could not be seen due to bowel gas. This happens occasionally. If your doctor wants to check your ovaries, you need to have a transvaginal ultrasound. If the ovaries are still difficult to see, MRI might be useful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Out of the field: Cardiac mr is centered on the heart. You may see on the border of the field partial breast tissue, but cardiac mr is not dedicated to breast. It is not the same exam, no the same protocol. Palpation and mammogram are the best. If something shows on the cardiac mr, then do mammogram. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had a hystectomy for fibroid tumors. Now I have calcifications in my breasts neck on my spleen. Is this related?
I have fibroid cysts in my breasts. A big guy gave me a hug today that hurt my right breast . I then heard a PoP.
Could that have been a cyst?
Maybe/maybe not: Fibrocystic breasts usually have very small cysts and are not likely to "pop" like bubble wrap. However, if it were a larger cyst, that may have been possible. Either way, it is a good idea to check the breasts again for any lumps or knot and see a MD if you are unsure. ...Read more
My lower breast is paining on both sides. I have gone through ultra sound and reports.impression fibroids very small in Millimeters size on left?
I was diagnosed with fibroids in my breast. My left breast is the worst. I had a mammogram, it was normal. My question is what does that mean exactly?
Fibroadenomas?: Do you mean fibroadenomas, or fibrous breast tissue? If fibroadenomas, how were they diagnosed? If you have dense breasts, it is possible for visualization of a fibroadenoma or other lesion to be obscurred by the generalized breast density, so the mammo would look normal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It is safe have surgery dealing with TB and Chronic granulomas??? I have 5.5 fibroid and Lymph node in my breast again needs be removed..worried maybe
Safe: Yes surgery is safe, but that doesn't mean the risk is zero. And that low risk is for a group of people, not an individual. While the odds of a complication are very low, it is unpredictable for an individual. Ask your surgeons about the anticipated postop course, and what complications they have seen. If they say they've never had complications, find another surgeon. One that's honest. ...Read more

Yesterday i had several mammograms. and ultrasound of my left breast, findings so far where two fibroids or two mass, could it be cancer?
From the limited: information provided, it sounds like the probability of cancer is low.

Burning sensation which started in left abdomen maybe ovaries after a very heavy period it has moved around my body to right side abdomen both breasts and front of calves what could be causing this i also have a lot of relatively large fibroids?
Could be fibroids: Fibroids are the most common cause of heavy periods. The pain you describe could also be due to fibroids. When large they can press on pelvic nerves to cause pain in the pelvis, hips, buttocks, thighs, and down the legs. Talk to your doctor. While many places would obtain a pelvic ultrasound, pelvic MRI would actually be better. It delineates the fibroids to see if they correlate with your pain. ...Read more
