Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I think theres about 2 or 3 there quite small quite rubbery?? (had a breast ultra sound back in february conclusion was normal.. just concerned bacause I think i have another one.

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for the information,

At your age breast lumps are mostly benign.

It is most probably fibroadenoma.

Fibroadenoma, Fibrocystic breast disease are benign condition, does not need any treatment.

In the young age it can regress by its own.


You had ultrasonogram, the doctor did not find any abnormality.

When you are finding a new one, you can take an appointment with doctor to have a look again.

I hope this information helps.

Please continue conversation till you are satisfied.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 2 years ago.
The lump can be due to a few probables.

It can be an inflamed lymph node.

A sebaceous or epidermoid cyst is also possible.

If it does not disappear by itself, you need to have an examination by doctor.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

well I do have an appointment for Tuesday just wanted some extra information basicly, would you say that this lump maybe linked to the other lumps I already have?

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 2 years ago.
It may not be connected to other lumps as scan did not reveal any abnormality.

Hello,

Welcome and thanks for your question. This has already been answered. Possibilities for a lump are sebaceous cyst, an inflamed lymph node or less likely an epidermoid cyst. If it is in the breast tissue, then it could just be a fibrocystic change. This used to be called "fibrocystic breast disease" but isn't any more since so many women have the benign fibrocystic changes to their breasts each month. It's good that you are seeing someone on Tuesday for an exam. Odds are there is nothing at all wrong.

 

 

All the best,


Schuyler

I have been refered for a breast scan next week, Iv been waiting 3 weeks for a scan i still feel fine but the lump has not changed in size or shape and im feeling well, do you reckon i should be concerned Im starting to panic now as it gets closer...

Expert:  A. Schuyler, NP replied 1 year ago.

I don't see any reason to panic. The scan is just to make sure that the lump is innocent. It is very unusual for there to be a malignancy in a woman your age. They are usually just fibrocystic changes or cysts of one kind or another. In young women the breast tissue is dense, so a scan can tell a lot more than a mammogram, so you are getting the very best possible treatment.

 

Please let me know what the final diagnosis is,

 

Schuyler
