Will a fibroadenoma benign tumor in my breast become malignant?

Will a fibroadenoma benign tumor in my breast become malignant?

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 more

Breast biopsy: Fat is a normal benign part of the breast, so a biopsy of the breast could potentially only show fat. However, usually in breast biopsy the tissue Of interest is the fibrous stroma containing the breast lobules and ducts. If a pathology report says 'benign breast tissue' this would generally refer to benign stroma/ducts/lobules, and not just fat. ...Read more

Would metastatic cervical cancer in the breast appear the same as breast cancer on mammogram and ultrasound?

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 more

A baseline 3D mammo states breasts are heterogenously dense which may obscure small masses.  A focal asymmetry noted in right upper breast. Worry?

Is cancerous breast lump single or there may b two cancerous lumps in breast.?

Is cancerous breast lump single or there may b two cancerous lumps in breast.?

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
