black spots on ultra sound after mammagram done for left breastwhat does that mean?
Hi--do you have the actual radiologist's report?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I had a second mammergram then ultra sound today. on screen it showed black spots and radiologist measured it. I see dr next week. just curious now
Were the spots on both the mammogram and the ultrasound? Were you told why the ultrasound was needed?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
yes it was and no they just ordered it after mammergram
OK--most likely these are benign cysts which would show up somewhat like black spots on an ultrasound. I can't be absolutely certain they are benign but the ultrasound was basically to establish that what was seen on the mammogram were cysts. At the same time, your doctor should have told you why he wanted the ultrasound.
