I was told no ultra sound needed for breast density this time my density is gone. Is this possible. I have had ultrasound & mammogram for several yr?

Very possible . The density of the breast tissue in young ladies depends on hormone status. The breast tissue will change depending on where you are in your cycle. If you happen to retain water during your cycle, the breast will get tender and denser. After menopause this is not as much an issue. Hope this helps.
If you are referring. to screening ultrasound in the setting of mammographically dense breasts, it is certainly possible that breasts can become less dense for various reasons(e.g. hormonal changes, aging, weight gain), and if they are no longer categorized as "dense", then the adjunct screening ultrasound would no longer be indicated.

Should a person with 3 breast cysts non painful get a bioposy done to make sure thers no cancer? I recently had a mammogram then was told I needed a ultra sound I got my results but they say its not cancer how can they know this if a bioposy wasnt done

Hi, . Hi, that is a great question. First off, breast cysts are very common (especially in middle aged women — 40’s, 50’s & 60’s). The milk glands in the breast can enlarge over time and develop into a cyst. There can be one cyst or a number of cysts. The cyst can be tiny or large. Usually, the major source of concern would be if there was a large cyst that was causing the woman physical discomfort. Masses that are seen on a mammogram that are suggestive of breast cancer often are calcified and usually are solid. The ultrasound is done to ensure that the cyst only contains fluid and no other materials. Unless the cysts contained materials other than fluids, a biopsy is normally not necessary. If the cyst is causing discomfort there is an option for aspiration. Read more...

Breast . Breast cysts are a very common benign condition. The combination of a mammogram and breast ultrasound is usually able to tell if there is anything suspicious. Have you had breast cysts seen before on radiology studies? Breast cysts will often come and go, and be more prominent around the menstrual cycle. Some cysts can be very small. Usually the radiologist can tell and will describe if their finding is a "simple cyst" whcih is a very common benign ultrasound finding. If the cyst is large or looks "complicated" to the radiologist then sometimes a repeat ultrasound is recommended in a few months. Sometimes the radiologist will recommend a needle biopsy if there are concerning or suspicious findings that they see. Needle biopsies just to remove breast fluid often do not yield any helpful information, and pathology of that fluid often offers no information. If the lesion seen was solid (not a water cyst) then a biopsy may be indicated. I hope that helps.You. Read more...
