Palpable left breast mass

Common Questions and Answers about Palpable left breast mass


Avatar f tn Findings: Targeted ultrasound was performed of the left breast in the area of the palpable concern. In the 9 o'clock position in the retroareolar breast, there is an irregular hypoechoic mass measuring 2.1 x 1.6 x 0.8 cm. Given its irregular shape, ultrasound guided biopsy is indicated. This was the report sent to my email. In person, the ultrasound nurse technician doing it told me it was a solid mass tumor. That's all she said.
Avatar n tn My pathology report states "Left Breast Mass 0.47 x 0.45 x 0.60" Are those figures the size of the tumor and, if so, is that a small tumor...maybe less than a centimeter? It's a non-palpable mass, biopsy was diagnosed as Invasive ductal carcinoma. Surgery this week, so would hope for a response ASAP. Thank you.
Avatar f tn I have an enlarged lymph node in left breast\armpit that under ultrasound appeared to be 0.7cm in size, its palpable and movable under skin and painless. Perviously I also had fibroadenoma on the same side but now there wasn't any mass identification under ultrasound.What are the reasons of lymph node enlargement?
Avatar f tn Two for calcifications which came back Atypical Hyperplasia in the left breast in 2004, and one for a palpable mass in the right in 7/2008. That pathology was negative but did show sclerosing adenosis and calcifications. I now have two palpable lumps in the left breast that we have been watching since 11/08. I go back to the surgeon on 1/12/08, do you think these need to be removed also and how many times do I keep doing this?
Avatar f tn I had an MRI done today after being diagnosed with invasive carcinoma on my left breast. The doctor wanted to be sure it had not spread. I am very nervous waiting for the results. I have a very small non-palpable mass that is about 1 cm. The doctor feels the cancer has not spread......What do you think?
721102 tn?1230565133 I have a small mass in my left breast, deep under and to the left. For several months I had periodic sharp pains and eventually made a drs appt. She sent me for testing and I had an ultrasound done with no negative results. The staff at the clinic would not do a mamogram because of my age (30) despite my medical history (cervical cancer, 2 years ago, and a cancerous mole removed between my breasts, 10+ years ago) and family history (numerous types of cancer including breast).
Avatar f tn Would recommend excisional biopsy rather than attempting CT-directed core biopsy. Asymmetric density in the superomedial left breast corresponding with the site of palpable abnormality. BIRADS:4 Can anyone tell me what this means????
806602 tn?1304700492 There could be something in the breast that you couldn't feel ... cysts and Fibroadenomas don't need to be large enough for you to feel on self exam. You should definitely see your Dr. for a breast exam and an Ultrasound of the breast. Just because you can't palpate a lump doesn't mean that there isn't one there. Regards ...
Avatar f tn t say much except that the mass that can be felt has some characteristics that raise suspicion of a cancerous mass. Keep in mind that this is ONLY a SUSPICION and not a diagnosis. There seems to also be a very small cyst in the same area which is evidently of little or no concern. It always takes a biopsy of the lump to determine it's true nature. Many findings may appear to have some characteristics of cancer but are NOT when studied under the microscope.
Avatar f tn I also have just one small palpable mass way up near the armpit that is only 9mm and was found to be benign a few years ago and is still there, but it's not a cyst or fibroadenoma. The FNA of this lump showed ductal cells and apocrine metaplasia. I've never had a single cyst show up on a mammogram or ultrasound. I'm 35 and this started when I was 30.
Avatar n tn Thus ensued immediate and enduring extreme pain left thigh and right breast, with visible/palpable tissue/fat changes. I have since had benign biopsy for the resultant microcalcifications/adjacent mass in the breast. Pain has all but resolved in the breast due to the maximum number of core biopsy specimens removed, but new mammo shows new microcalcification(s). Difference of opinion (mine) on whether the original breast ultrasound was comprehensive, and no orders to repeat it...
2093908 tn?1333352164 Sometimes,i felt my underarm swelling but no lump or any mass palpable. My left breast felt heavy but also i can't palpate any mass or lump,no skin changed or any nipple discharge other then a breastmilk. The pain will come and lasted for 2 weeks and then it will come again 1 week later. I've been suffering all these symptoms for 2 months now,been to general hospital 3 times and private hospital once..
Avatar f tn I went last week for a mammogram and ultrasound because I have a palpable mass in the right breast. The nurse called 3 hrs after my test and told me the ultrasound was normal but my doctor wants me to get a second opinion with a breast specialist. Called for the appointment but can't get in until the middle of November. Is there something she's not telling me? Why would the radiologist call my dr. right away if it was normal?
Avatar f tn I found a lump in my left breast about 2 weeks ago. I had an ultrasound done today and the doctor said he couldnt see anything, but he felt the large lump. I am on a waiting list for a biopsy and dont know when Ill get it. The doctor said he had no idea what it was. Has this happened to anyone else? Im getting impatient about finding out if its cancer or not.
Avatar f tn I suggest that you see a Breast Specialist if you haven't already. Certainly not meaning any disrespect to your two Doctors but Breast Disease and /or conditions are not their specialty. Make an appointment with a Breast Specialist / Breast Surgeon, take your films, not just the report, to your appointment and get a second opinion regarding this mass. It certainly would possibly indicate some type of cyst since the size is now smaller since the biopsy.
Avatar n tn You have an enlarging breast mass that warrants further evaluation. You may need to undergo further tests to determine what is that mass. A biopsy may be needed to determine what it is. Perhaps you should ask for a referral to a breast specialist. Take care.
Avatar f tn 1.3 cm asymmetry in left breast is indeterminate... what does this mean? I'm going in next week for more views. Is the shape of the mass tell you anything? I know you would never know until a biopsy but I'm concerned.
655089 tn?1224362093 15,2008 that I have 3 clusters of calcifications on my left side and also a small non-palpable mass which was found on an ultrasound. Since I am not a candidate for a needle biopsy, my only 2 choices were to have a mammogram and ultrasound in 6 months, or to go see a surgeon. I am reluctant to see a surgeon. I really don't know what to do. Is it safe to wait 6 months?
Avatar n tn I am 28yrs old and have a palpable mass in my left breast the size of a 50 cent piece.It causes me pain and shortness of breath.I sweat perfusley I usually end up changing my shirt mid way of my work shift.I get small lumps under my arms...My doctor has ordered an ultrasound but I was wondering if u could clarify on this so I won't be as ancey while I wait to have that done ,and the results ..Thank u very much I appreciate your time...
Avatar f tn Last year I had a palpable mass. It was not seen on mammogram which is important to note but palpable by myself, doctor and ultrasound tech. At the time of ultrasound the radiologist (drs?) came in and told me I had a complex cystic mass that was solid and honeycomb in appearance? The birads was a 4. They verbally told me it was highly suspicious for malignancy and it needed to be removed asap. It turned out benign.
Avatar m tn I am 39 years young and found a lump in my breast the night before Thanksgiving. Monday I had a diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound. The results on the final report is BIRADS Category 5. The impression reads: A solid irregular hypoechoic mass associated with heterogeneous microcalcifications is identifed at the 10 o'clock position of the right breast in the area of reported palpable concern.
Avatar f tn My doc said she found a mass in my left breast, she scheduled a diagnostic scan and ultra-sound, the tech said all they saw was healthy breast tissue. My doctor says she does not think that is right and has me scheduled with a surgeon soon, who do I trust and believe? Are the lab scans and ultrasounds ever wrong.
Avatar f tn For example, an ultrasound is better at differentiating between a mass that is solid or fluid filled. A solid mass on ultrasound may not show up. On mammogram certain characteristics can show up such as microcalcifications, or a density, but it too has its limitations.If you are too concerned about this lump,ask your doctor,who has the all the details about your case, to consider if a biopsy would be necessary to find out the nature of this lump.Best wishes .
Avatar f tn Targeted sonography of the right breast demonstrates suspicious hypoechoic mass in the area of palpable concern. It measures aproximately 2 x 2 cm. Ultrasound guided core biopsy was performed uneventfully. There is no definite evidence of suspicious lymphadenopathy in the right axilla". Now they want me to have a MRI. Could you please explain to me what's going on?
