There is: Not enough information to make an assessment. The probability of malignancy depends on various ultrasound features that should be described in the report. Also, there should be a BIRADS code at the end of the report which summarizes the radiologist's assessment of the chance of malignancy.

Looked at ultrasound of breast in my own computer-- report was normal but I feel like I see shadowing and maybe some hypoechoic distortion. Likely?
Breast: Ultrasound takes some experience and training to do. One will often see areas of shadowing in areas of cooper's ligaments and there is great heterogeneity in the way breast tissue normally appears particularly in young women with lots of glandular tissue and glandular/fat interfaces. So, its good to be proactive in your health care but be cautious in reaching imaging conclusions on your own. ...Read more
How often is a breast mass cancerous when it shows up brightly colored on an ultrasound? (mine also has some irregular shape and shadowing)
Difficult to say: Without reviewing the images and full report, but irregular margins and shadowing tend to be suspicious features on ultrasound. By brightly "colored", it probably means internal blood flow with Color Doppler. Based solely on the features you describe, this is at least a BIRADS category 4B intermediate suspicion lesion, which implies about a 40% chance of malignancy. It probably needs a biopsy. ...Read more

1.3 CM hypoechic enhanciement mass on left breast. Irregular margins irregular morphology. Bi Rads 4. Do I need to be concerned. Mom had BC at 45.
Yes, needs follow-up: You need prompt follow-up. The hypoechoic finding suggests this is solid which is more worrisome than if it were cystic (fluid or air filled). The irregular margins and morphology are also of concern and I suspect this all leads to a BiRads 4 designation which means up to a 30% chance this finding could be cancer. A biopsy is likely needed. Please contact your doctor right away. Good luck! ...Read more
Had my "irregular hypoechoic heterogenous 2.4cm breast lump" biopsied and it turned out to be a benign 'sclerosing adenosis'. What causes these?
