follow-up left breast ultrasound is recommended in 6 months.
1. There is a 4 mm solid appearing nodule in the left retroareolar region
at 3:00 1 cm from the nipple. Ultrasound-guided core biopsy is
2. Additional 4 mm cysts at 10:00 3 cm from the nipple, 1:00 4 cm from the

COMPARISON: January 24, 2018-July 16, 2014
Ordering Provider: WYNETTE G A (M.D.) AMAZONA
BREAST DENSITY: The breast tissues are heterogeneously dense, which may
obscure small masses.
FINDINGS: Left XCCL, ML and MLO spot compression views were performed.
There are several faint mostly obscured nodular densities in the upper
breast. No architectural distortion or spiculation is seen. There are no
suspicious clustered microcalcifications. There are a few faint scattered
microcalcifications and coarse calcifications.
Left breast ultrasound was performed for further evaluation. There is a 4
x 4 x 3 mm cyst at 10:00 3 cm from the nipple, a 4 x 4 x 3 mm cyst at 1:00
4 cm from the nipple and a 4 x 2 x 5 mm probable complex cyst at 3:00 3 cm
from the nipple. There is a 4 x 4 x 3 mm hypoechoic solid-appearing
rounded nodule at 3:00 1 cm from the nipple in the retroareolar region.
There are surrounding ductal structures.
These images are also analyzed using computer-aided detection equipment.
