Hi. I am 27, and single. I had a bilateral breast sonography yesterday. the result:
1-Both breasts have normal fibroglandular echopattern
2-With no sign of cystic lesion.
3-Lactating duct appear normal.
3-No skin thickening or abnormal calcification are seen.
4-Axillary lymphadenopathy is noted.
There is a well defined hypo echo mass (8*5 mm) at 3 clock of LT breast, with no visible calcification and tissue distortion.
-A well defined hypo echo mass (8*4.5 mm) at 9 clock of RT breast is also seen, with no visible calcification and tissue distortion.

Conclusion: BIRADS-3 probably benign lesion as fibroadenoma or intra mammary lymphnode.

Is it dangerous?? What should i do? What is the treatment? Should i need to have surgery? Plz help me. Thank you in advance.

Hello effat_english,

Thank you for reaching out to us with your concern about your breast sonography.

A follow up appointment should be scheduled, if not already, with the physician who ordered this test. Your doctor is your best resource to explain the findings. However, the key word in the conclusion is benign, which means non cancerous.

Here is some general information that you might find helpful in understanding the findings.

BI-RADS is a quality assurance tool designed to standardize mammography reporting. The American College of Radiology came up with a standard way to describe mammogram findings and results. In this system, the results are sorted into categories numbered 0 through 6. This system is called the Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS). Having a standard way of reporting mammogram results lets doctors use the same words and terms, which can help ensure better follow up of suspicious findings.

BI-RADS 3 means The findings in this category have a very high chance (greater than 98%) of being benign (not cancer). The findings are not expected to change over time. But since it’s not proven benign, it’s helpful to see if the area in question does change over time.

Follow-up with repeat imaging is usually done in 6 months and regularly after that until the finding is known to be stable (usually at least 2 years). This approach helps avoid unnecessary biopsies, but if the area does change over time, it still allows for early diagnosis.

Fibroadenomas are solid, noncancerous breast tumors that occur most often in adolescent girls and women under the age of 30.

Intramammary lymph nodes are lymph nodes within the breast tissue.

Dear Maryan

Thank you so much for your hopeful comments regarding my breast sonography. The doctor assured me that there was no problem. She prescribed some pills including Vitamine B Complex and Vitamine E. As you said, she told me that i have to come to her next month to check me. my question is that what caused this problem? What is the reason?

And if next month in my next appointment, the masses are enlarged or increased, what is the treatment? Should i remove them through surgery?

Hi effat_english,

I am happy that I was able to help. Those are all good questions you should ask your doctor during your next appointment. Write them down in a note pad and bring it with you.

At present, doctors do not know what causes fibroadenomas. Their development may be linked to reproductive hormones.

Fibroadenomas sometimes shrink on their own.

Please do not stress about the possibility of surgery. Generally, surgery is recommended if a clinical breast exam or imaging test or biopsy is abnormal.
