Hi I am 44 premenopausal and have been on the pill for 28yrs. I was having breat pain and was scheduled for my routime mammo and was told to have a U/S also because of the pain. My mammo was neg but a solid mass was found by u/s. I had a core needle by done that came back positive for PASH. I was told by the radiologist to repeat the u/s in 6months. I have read that you should have surgical excision-should I ? Thank you
Dear pabarm: PASH is a benign condition. In most cases, it appears that a surgical excision is recommended to be certain that the entire lesion is PASH. You may want to discuss this with a breast specialist. These are generally affilliated with large academic medical centers.
