8mm well circumscribed hyperechoic mass in sternal notch, slightly mobile, firm, growing. Possible lymph node?? Tech thought node, doc thinks lipoma??
Prob lipoma.: An ultrasound can see the difference between a lymph node and a lipoma. So if the doctor (radiologist) said lipoma, it's a lipoma.

Any lump that continues to grow eventually needs a biopsy. I hope that helps! ...Read more
