Hello Yana K, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Based on the ultrasound of your breasts, it is found that the lump you have is most likely FAM (mammary fibroadenoma). There are several types of FAM, the most commonly found is simple FAM. Simple FAM is characterized by a round mass with clear boundaries and a flat, movable surface, and on ultrasound examination looks solid. Simple FAM does not increase a person's risk of developing breast cancer and often does not need any therapy because it is unobtrusive and can even shrink on its own.
Other types of FAM are juvenile FAM (FAM that appears at the age of 10-18 years), complex FAM, and large FAM (Giant FAM). Juvenile FAM, like simple FAM, often does not require any therapy and can shrink on its own, while large FAM and complex FAM will require further evaluation and FAM removal therapy.
You should take the breast ultrasound results back to the doctor who treats you for further evaluation. Your doctor will combine the results of the clinical interview, physical examination, and ultrasound results to determine your type of FAM and plan further plans. If indeed the FAM you have is simple FAM (or juvenile FAM - depending on your current age), then chances are that the lump doesn't need any treatment. The doctor will recommend regular ultrasounds to see the progress of your FAM.
