Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Mammary ultrasound is a method of checking ultrasound performed on the breasts, usually to detect any abnormalities in the form of a lump or mass, its characteristics, number, and type.
From the results you mentioned, the sentence you wrote before the impression describes the characteristics of your breast tissue, that the skin tissue is normal, at 11-12 o'clock, about 2 cm from the nipple there is a lump with an irregular shape with the size as written above, and there is no enlarged lymph nodes in the armpits and so on.
All of these characteristics summed up an impression of an indeterminate mass (BIRADS 4) located at 11-12 o'clock. BIRADS or BI-RADS stands for Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System and this is a categorization made by an institution in America. When assessed using BI-RADS, a mass or lump can be categorized as 0-6, where the higher the number the more likely it is that it is malignant or cancerous.
In your case, BI-RADS 4 is called indeterminate mass or has not yet been determined. As a percentage, it can be said that there is a 30% chance that it is malignant and a 70% chance that it is a benign disorder. So to ensure this, underneath it is written a recommendation in the form of a biopsy because a biopsy is a more specific examination to determine whether a lump is malignant or benign.
We recommend that you discuss this again with the doctor who requested the examination. Because after all, it takes a history extracting and direct physical examination that is complemented by supporting examinations to be able to make a diagnosis, the investigation itself cannot be. So, hopefully it answers your question.
