Customer Question
I have a breast...

I have a breast lump, which at first was diagnosed as a cyst or deleted duct. During last mammogram at a different facility, the results came as "new areas of focal asymmetry posteriorly. What could it mean?

Doctor's Assistant: When did you first notice this? When was your last mammogram?

About 2 years ago, the first diagnosis was over a year ago, the last one just a few weeks ago

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Ovarian fibroids?

By definition, a focal asymmetric density is seen on two mammographic views but cannot be accurately identified as a true mass. Although a focal asymmetric density may represent normal breast tissue, further evaluation is often warranted to exclude a true mass or architectural distortion. So, it can mean absolutely nothing in your case where there is a cyst in the breast. Your doctor can properly evaluate you clinically in the light of these new findings.

Hope this helps.
