Breast Cancer/Question


A friend of mine age 54 had a mammography on both breast followed by ultrasound & it shows on right breast retroareolar region revealed sizable dense lobular end mass, seen by ultrasound as solid heterogeneous echo texture mass showing cystic spaces . It measures about 7.5 x 4.5 cm. while  left breast homogeneous distribution of fat fibroglandular tissue ... How bad is that & is it recommended to have surgical removal of right breast

Based on the report you have sent me I see no reason for alarm. To be completely sure I do suggest needle biopsies of the seen lesions and maybe also MRI breast scans. If these tests are OK nothing more needs to be done at present. Good luck!
