Question: Isodense Mass

 kriz_fox - Tue Apr 03, 2007 6:37 am

a patially obscured isodense mass is seen in the upper-mid region of the right breast. What could this be? And what must I do next?

User avatar When masses are found in the breast it is important to follow up with your doctor to complete the evaluation. Often, at this point, ultrasounds or CT scans can be done to further evaluate the mass. A fine needle biopsy may be needed to take a small sample of the mass to see if there are any suspicious cells within it.

Best wishes.
