I was told there is a hypoechoic ovoid area in the right breast 9 o'clock axis 6-7 cm from the nipple measuring 5.1x2.1 mm in size. Decision to further evaluate palpable abnormalitiy should be base on clinical grounds. What does this mean?
Dear Justnoww23, This is a description of what they are seeing on the ultrasound. Hypoechoic means that there are less ultrasound waves to the area than would be normal, and ovoid is the shape. It is suggested that this finding be interpreted in context of your physical examination, to decide what if any further evaluation needs to be done. Further evaluation might include a biopsy of the area. Your doctor will best be able to direct you to the next step necessary in further checking out this finding.
