Comprehensive Breast Eval. w/CAD
I had my annual visit to my OBGYN yesterday. She said she felt some Ted (?) fibroglandular tissue in L breast at 12-2 and is scheduling a comprehensive Breast Evalution w/CAD.  I'm very concerned.
What percent chance that this is breast cancer as opposed to a cyst.  My breasts are very fibrous.

Hi,

It would be very difficult to say anything with the information that you have provided.

What is your age? Do you feel any lump on breast self examination?

Has a mammogram or ultrasound been done ever?

Do let us know what your OBG told you exactly and what symptoms you are having.

Do not worry about breast cancer right now, it should most probably be a fibroadenoma, but further investigations need to be done for the confirmed diagnosis.

Do keep us posted.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly.  I'm 51 years old.  I've had a mammagram every year since I turned 40.  My mom head stage II breast cancer 6 years ago and is now clear.  On self examination, I feel something like a large moving ball, that changes sizes, and hurts if pressed hard.  My OBG said she felt some debse fibroglandular tissue in left breast at 12-2 so she ordered a Comprehensive Breast Evaluation w/CAD. I am so scared as I've only had a screening mammagram before.  What is a fibroadenoma?  Thank you.

Hi,

It looks to be a benign lesion most probably from what you describe, but considering your family history - you are in the high risk group , so a proper clinical examination and relevant investigations would be required before a confirmed diagnosis can be reached.

Fibradenoma and fibrocystic disease of the breast are benign breast lesions associated with increased fibrosis, cystic areas and lumps in some cases. These vary in size, pain and tenderness with hormonal fluctuations as seen during menstrual cycles, OCP or HRT use.

These are managed conservatively, that is, without surgical interventions , with regular follow up examinations.

A confirmed diagnosis would need a mammogram, USG, an MRI maybe, needle aspiration and a biopsy in some cases.

Do let us know what your doctor tells you and keep us posted about how you are doing and if you have any doubts.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.
