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

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
