Question
I had undergone a Sonomammography in Aug last year wherein a hypoechoic lesion was detected in my right breast. Have attached the report. I did not consult any doctor after that nor take any medication for the same.
I recently felt sharp shooting pain in my right breast when touched at a certain angle. This was just before my periods. After the periods the pain reduced but I still felt it at times. So I underwent another Sonomammography. Report attached.
Would like to understand the meaning of this report and what will be the medication if any that I should be taking.

Thank you Dr.

Your response eases my mind greatly.

Will following your advice on a nutritious diet and exercise along with Vitamin E make the lesions seen in the sonomammography go away?

Also could you recommend any specific name for a vitamin E supplement?
