Brief Answer:
It may be due to many causes like cyst,mass etc.

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Shadows in mammography and ultrasound(sono-mammography)may be due to many causes like cyst,mass etc.
It may be due to both benign or malignant reasons.
Both combined mammography and ultrasound are very helpful in diagnosis.
However FNAC of lesion is confirmatory for exact diagnosis.

If possible please upload full report for proper interpretation.It is important to know size of shadow,calcification,margins etc which are always mentioned in the report.
Waiting for your response.

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Generally breast lump is felt by hands if it is properly done.
I presume that ultrasound has been done already,if not please wait for ultrasound of breasts.
Both mammography and sonography will give more idea.
If you have any reports then please upload it.
If you find any difficulty then you may consult customer care of healthcaremagic also.
