Nodule (Definition)

Any growth or deposit in the body or on its surface may be casually termed a nodule until its character is determined by the familiarity of the physician with it or by the results of a biopsy if it is not so obvious. The term is casual ...Read more

What is a hypoechoic nodule of the breast measuring 0.5 is well circumscribed and ovoid?

What is a hypoechoic nodule of the breast measuring 0.5 is well circumscribed and ovoid?

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

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??

All of those: Ultrasound features point toward a probably benign etiology, possibly fibroadenomas (a common benign nodule). Management is usually short interval follow up in 6 months or needle biopsy for confirmation. Read more

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

Are 2 new hypoechoic breast nodules found on follow up ultrasound report bad if I have a history if multiple fibroadenomata since '03 should I be wrd?

Breast nodules: There are multiple possibilities for hypoechoic breast nodules, including complex cysts or fibroadenomas. Cancer would be less like because more than one lesion was detected. I would recommend biopsy to confirm suspected benign diagnosis. 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?

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

What to do if I have 5 cystic nodules on my breast, is this normal?

Not usual: But it is not necessarily an indication of an underlying disease. I would discuss with your primary care physician or consider dermatological evaluation. A biopsy may be performed for a definitive diagnosis. Read more
