I had an ultrasound of my breasts today after noticing a lump in my left breast. I gathered from the technician that it was "very" small (about 3mm) and nothing to worry about. He also stated that I had dense breast tissue in my left breast, but not my right one. Please keep in mind that I have small breasts. My question is this: I've read that dense breast tissue can be a risk factor for breast cancer. Could it just be a coincidence that I have both a cyst and dense breast tissue only in the left breast?
I have ficrocystic breast change and very dense breast. My right breast is more dense than that other. I had a lump that was removed by lumpectomy on 11-7 and it was in the breast with more density. Mine came back beign. Everytime I go for a mammo. I have to go for an ultrasound. Good luck
