Unclear question. Why did you have these tests done? Do you have any symptoms? Did you discuss the results with the doctor who ordered the tests? Doing tests that are not addressed to answer a specific question often leads to other questions and unneeded investigation and treatment.

Not exactly sure. What the question is, but the axillary lymph nodes sound like they are normal. Ultrasound cannot specifically diagnose a fibroadenoma, but probably benign nodules that likely are fibroadenomas are usually followed up at 6 month intervals for 2 or 3 years to assess stability.

Could you tell me if the axillary lymph nodes are removed, why would the arm be edematous?

Blocks lymphatics. The lymph nodes are accumulations of white blood cells which filter the extracellular water being carried back to the blood steam from all over the body. If the nodes are mechanically removed the lymph channels are no longer connected resulting in accumulation of extracellular water (edema) upstream from the removed nodes. Please see question 750811 for more details. Read more...
Blockage/narrowing. Lymphedema occurs when there is a compromise of the lymphatic circulation. This third circulation (arteries, veins) carries things too thick to be safely carried in arteries and veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. It is propelled along by normal body movements but contains a thick material called lymph. Blockage causes it to back up causing soft tissues/skin deformity. Read more...

There is a heterogeneous fibroglandular distribution. There are axillary lymph nodes present bilaterally. Mammogram report, any worries?

Heterogenous. fibroglandular distribution is simply an assessment of breast density, and doesn't imply that there is any abnormality. "Dense" breasts may make the mammo more difficult to interpret, and therefore may decrease the sensitivity for detecting cancer, however. Axillary lymph nodes are commonly present on mammography, and unless they look abnormal, are not a cause for concern. Read more...
