On 12 o' clock in the right breast, there is a hypoechoic solid lesion, where I was not able to certainly distinct is there one bilobated or two adjacent lesions. Maximal diameter of the lesion is around 25 mm. The lesion is lobulated and not completely parallel to the skin, has no increased vascularity and distinct posterior phenomenon.
There is the hyperechoic rim, but it is somehow interrupted with lobulations.
There were no pathologic axillary lymph nodes.
A lesion like this can be characterized as a fibroadenoma, but it has some unusual characteristics (micro lobulation, non-parallel orientation).
Taking into consideration family and personal history, lesion's characteristics and the fact that the patient had her first imaging breast examination at the age of 50, I decided to grade this as a BIRADS IV lesion.
I suggested her to perform a mammography immediately, but she refused.
My final report was BIRADS IV for the right breast, and also a strong advice for a mammography as soon as possible because of the further lesion evaluation.
