I had my first mamogram 2 weeks ago, turned 40 in January. They called me back for a second mamogram because they found a lump on my left breast. They also did an ultrasound which a mass was shown and they showed me where my lump was and wow..it felt like a hard marble. My gynocologist did not even feel this when she did my breast examination 2 and 1/2 weeks ago. I had a needle core biopsy and the radiologist before performing the procedure said he felt like it was fibronoma; which made me feel better but then again I will not know for sure until tomorrow. If it is fibronoma would your recommend me getting the lup removed or just letting it run its course. Just curious what most people do. I am hanging on that the lump is B9....Thinking positive...B9...B9....B9!!!!!
Good for you for thinking B9! In my opinion,the radiologist would not have hinted that the lump was probably benign, if he had a little doubt about it.You know,radiologists are quite experienced in viewing the images seen on Mammograms and U/S. Of course the ultimate exact diagnosis is the pathologist's report that you will get very soon.
Fibroadenomas are usually left alone because they are benign tumors,but if it causes you much pain or becomes bothersome,you can always have it removed.Best wishes on your pathologist's report tomorrow.Please let us know about the results if it's okay with you.Take care.
