Ultrasound Of A Lump In The Breast Of A 29 Year Old Woman?
Hello Ahmad, Thank you for the question.
Is the complaint experienced by your younger sibling, is it a lump in the breast? Lumps in the breast can be caused by several health conditions, ranging from benign lumps (such as fibroadenomas, breast abscesses, fibrocystic breasts) to malignant ones (breast cancer). To find out the cause of the lump in the breast, the doctor needs to know the patient's complaint, examine this lump, and perform other examinations such as ultrasound / mammography and biopsy. A biopsy is the removal of tissue from the lump to be examined in a laboratory. From the ultrasound examination, it was found that there was a tumor in the right breast accompanied by enlarged lymph nodes in the right armpit; however, to ascertain whether the nature of the tumor is benign or malignant, further examination (in the form of a biopsy) is required.
Has your sister checked again with the doctor who recommended this examination? Ultrasound examination is one of the supporting examinations that aim to support / help doctors make a diagnosis of the disease. Because of its nature as a support, this examination cannot be interpreted separately from information about the patient's complaints, a doctor's physical examination, and other supporting assessments. To make a diagnosis, doctors need all of this information. Therefore, you should advise your younger sibling to return to consult the doctor who handled it by bringing the results of the examination and discussing with the doctor about the disease he is experiencing and subsequent treatment. I am sorry that I cannot provide more detailed information because the results of the medical examination are related to the privacy and confidentiality of patient data.
Hope this information was of use to you.
