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.
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.
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.
My first ultrasound also said that the suspicious lesion had a "heterogeneous echogenicity".
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 what does "diffuse internal echoes" mean?
Thankyou for your help!!
