Hello and welcome to HCM
The ultra sound of your left breast shows that you have a condition known as Fibroadenosis of breast.
Fibroadenosis is a hormone responsive condition. It is commonly seen in middle aged women.
It may cause pain especially during menstrual cycles.
In this there is alternative fibrosis and cystic change in the breast.
The cyst may be filled with fluid.

The treatment is medical and along with that application of primrose oil.
