Mammography report

My relative's Mammography shows following results:
1. Well defined hypo echoic mass 10.2 mm in diameter and 7.3 mm in depth seen in outer and lower quadrant of right breast.’
2. Subanolar regions are normal .No mass lesion is seen.
3. No evidence of axillafy lymphaderopathy.
4. Retromammary areas are normal.
5. Skin and subcutaneous tissue are normal.
6. Axiltary tail is normal on both sides.
7. Left breast is normal.

Impression:-
1. Well defined hypo echoic mass 10.2 mm in diameter and 7.3 mm in depth seen in outer and lower quadrant of right breast - Findings are in favour of benign breast mass.

ENAC is requested.

Kindly suggest what all it means and how we should proceed to rectify the problem.

Warm Regards,
Saurabh

Hi,
An ultrasound differentiates between the normal breast tissue and a solid or cystic lesion.
It differentiates by picking up ultrasound waves and lesions of the same density as the breast would be isoechoic.
A hypoechoic lesion would be one with lower density than the rest of the area. It needs to be investigated further.
A needle aspiration or FNAC is done usually - which is a safe OPD procedure to take some cells from the site and send them for examination.
The ultrasound report says it mostly looks like a benign or non malignant lesion - but a needle aspiration or FNAC would give a confirmed diagnosis.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.
