I'm 26 years old with a past history of thyroid cancer.
3 months ago I found a lump in my right breast and ended up having an ultrasound to check. They found 2 solid hypoechoic lesions that were probably fibroadenomas but couldn't confirm, they recommended repeat ultrasound in 3 months time.
I had that ultrasound done last week, but this time both breasts were checked, I just got my report, and was wondering if anyone can shed some light on what they are saying.
BILATERAL BREAST ULTRASOUND
There are two solid lesions present in the right breast. In the 9 o'clock position, 2cm from the nipple, there is a 16 x 15 x 5mm diameter oval solid lesion with well defined margins. In the 11 o'clock position there is a 7 x 6 x 5mm diameter rounded lesion with diffuse internal echoes. The appearance of the larger lesion is consistent with a fibroadenoma. The appearance of the smaller lesion is less typical of a fibroadenoma, it's exact nature is difficult to state with certainty. There is no evidence of a solid or cystic lesion elsewhere in the right breast.
In the left breast there are two adjacent oval solid lesions measuring 5 and 6.5mm in diameter present in the 2 o'clock position. In the 7 o'clock position there is a larger oval lesion measuring 10 x 5mm. The appearance of each of the three lesions within the left breast is consistent, but not diagnostic of fibroadenoma. There is no evidence of a sonographically suspicious lesion elsewhere in the left breast.
Conclusion: There are three solid lesions present in the left breast and two solid lesions present in the right breast. Most of these have an appearance consistent with a fibroadenoma. The lesion in the 11 o'clock position of the right breast is not typical of a fibroadenoma, its exact nature is uncertain. Ultrasound guided biopsy is recommended for confirmation.
Obviously I am quite concerned about this small solid lesion at 11 o'clock. If it's solid, does that mean it can't be a cyst? And if it's not a fibroadenoma, can it only be cancer? Also can anyone tell me what "diffuse internal echoes" means?
Thankyou, my appointment with a surgeon isn't till October and I'm nervously waiting to understand what I should be thinking.
