What Is A Hypoechoic Nodule In The Breast Area
Benign.: These are hallmarks of something that is not cancerous. It also needs to show no shadowing, and may have enhanced through-transmission. Probably a benign fibroadenoma, needs no follow up unless stated so by the interpreting doctor. Could be a cyst, same answer: should be benign. If it shadows, is tall, not completely smooth, or big all bets are off. Biopsy is easy with a core needle if needed. ...Read more
Multpl fibroadomata in breasts found in '03 follow up ultrasound shows 2 'new' hypoechoic nodules since other nodules unaltered. Is this normal? 41yrs
Fibroadenomas: Patients with numerous benign appearing nodules/fibroadenomas tend to have.....numerous nodules. It is not desirable, to attempt to document every one if they all look the same. So it is not at all unusual for a tech to document "new" lesions on follow up. You can see how this could lead to endless, and unnecessary, short interval follow ups. If they all look benign and similar, no worries. ...Read more
Breast u/s: well circumscribed hypoechoic solid nodules slightly lobulated wider than taller 2cm x 1cm and 0.84cm x 0.47cm means??
Multiple hypoechoic nodules with benign features in both breasts. Sometimes hurting. Should I have anything to be worried about and have it removed?
Fibrocystic breast: Talk to a general surgeon. Most likely you have fibrocystic breast disease, which is commonly confused with breast cancer (even by trained professionals) - but in your case, correctly determined to be "benign". A surgeon may be able to remove some of the cysts, but they may return. Talk to a surgeon about options for removal, a doctor about other treatments (heating pads, NSAIDs like Naproxen, &c) ...Read more

My friend's UTZ has a hypoechoic mass nodule in her left beast. Left breast is at 2 o clock position zone b - 1.3 x 0.6 x 0.8 cm. Is it malignant?
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. Merely knowing that a hypoechoic nodule is present doesn't narrow it down. It could be benign or suspicious ...Read more
My friends UTZ result is: in her right breast it has multiple cyst and in her left breast It has hypoechoic solid nodule. What does it mean? Thanks
Cysts: Are a benign finding. A hypoechoic solid nodule is a solid mass. The chance that it is malignant, and the proper recommendation for follow up, depends upon various ultrasound, mammographic, and clinical findings that are not mentioned in the question. How was it described in the report? It could need no follow-up, short interval followup, more imaging, or biopsy. Simply not enough info. ...Read more
What does having a small hypoechoic focus around. 67mm on breast means? The radiologist says is a breast nodule nothing more. Kindly explain? Thanks
There is simply: Not enough information to venture a guess. A hypoechoic nodule can be almost certainly benign, or highly suspicious, depending on various ultrasound characteristics that are not provided. Talk to your doctor about the results, or if you can perhaps provide more info from the report. ...Read more

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

Left breast, irregular area nodule 1.9x1.8x1.3 cm Located 2 & 2/3 inches from nipple. Needle biopsy recommended. Dense breast area?
Biopsy: If a new breast nodule was noted then a mammogram and or breast sonogram should be done to confirm. If the findings on the study indicated a biopsy should be done then I would recommend following that advice. Most breast masses are benign but it is certainly a good idea to prove it. ...Read more

You are describing: A BIRADS 3 (probably benign) lesion based on the ultrasound features. By definition, there is less than 2% chance of malignancy, and the usual management in an average risk patient is short interval follow up, typically every 6 months for 2 years. ...Read more

Yearly mammogram showed stable right breast nodule consistent with benign etiology (BR-RADS 2 Benign) stayed the same for 2 yrs should I be concern?
No concern: The mammo defines a malignant lesion as a stellate one usually with associated microcalcifications. A sono can suggest the nodule is a fibroadenoma or has fluid in it which is benign. An MRI can further elucidate the nature of the lesion. A malignancy does not remain stable in the breast but is noted to enlarge and invade surrounding tissue over a period of months. ...Read more
On a mammogram what does stable right breast nodule consistent with benign etiology (BR-RADS 2 Benign) mean? What's does the meaning of etiology?
Exam +/-: When evaluating a woman who has found a nodule, the best test is to have a careful breast examination. Many perceived lumps are just "variations of normal", with reassurance& follow-up sufficient. If a true lump is found, I prefer to do an ultrasound+/- needle biopsy, if it appears solid and suspicious. A mammogram may also be helpful depending on one's age, but doesn't replace a biopsy. ...Read more
Solid v Fluid-Filled: A "nodule" is a generic term for a breast lump. Common causes include "lumpy-bumpy" breast tissue ("fibrocystic changes"), tumors (benign or malignant), and cysts (fluid-filled;benign). A thorough history and physical examination supplemented by ultrasound+/-mammography+/-biopsy will help sort this out. ...Read more
