Breast Mass

Hello,

    I am a 30 y/o female with no history of BC in my family. My PCP had found a lump during her CBE and sent me for Mammo and Ultrasound evaluation. I have a History of having a Fibroadenoma removed from my rt breast in '97 and one from my lt breast in '02.

I had the evals done and just received the report. I have questions regarding the findings, but only find scary answers on-line. I have called my Dr. with no luck due to the fact she has been out sick all week. Please help me if you can: (i understand you cannot give definate answers, but help in understanding would be wonderful)

Palpable right breast lump 5cm from the nipple demonstrate;   Heterogeneous Vascular Mass measuring 2.5 x 2.3 x 2.8 cm. The Mass is Lobulated with well Circumscribed Margins.

The Radiologist also reported that I needed a referral to a sergeon for an excisional biopsy. That just has to wait untill my Dr. is back from sick leave.

Thank you,
SCARED

All features are highly suggestive f a benign mass (lobulated/ well circumscribed, small mass), however excisional biopsy is advisable (to be on the safer side)
