hello sandra,
is it from one side?
is there any underlying mass you feel on palpation?
consult surgeon or gynecologist. you may need mammography and if mass is there then fnac may be needed.its difficult to give diagnosis without examination and may be papilloma or duct ectasia or fibrocystic disease or malignancy . dont negelect. take care

We got a report as follows :


Age : 54

Microscopic findings :

A/B : Smear shows necrotic debris, inflammatory cells, foamy macrophages, clusters of duct epithelial cells, naked nuclei and haemorrhage in the background.

Impression :

A/B : FNAC - Breast Mass - Benign cytology in favour of fibrocystic disease.

doctor1 MD

Fnac of a large firm mass in left breast. About 5 ml. of grey brown fluid material obtained. A second pass made in the subareolar thickened area material obtained is scanty. Smear made and stained, no definite cell seen In the smear other than odd spindly cells. Centrifuge deposit of fluid showed cellular debris, some macrophages and few squamous cells. No definite nuclear atypia is seen.

Diagnosis: Fna yielded fluid material with fairly normal debris and degenerated cells suggestive of fibrocystic disease. However, the presence of squamous cells is intriguing. Histological evaluation of mass seen may be considered to completely exclude any cellular abnormality.

My worry is that, is there any danger that Doctor can foresee without performing a surgery at the age of 83 for getting samples of cyst

doctor1 MD

I have lump in right breast for the last five months. I recently did mammography which showed some fibrocystic disease and insisted upon FNAC the results of which will be obtained today (02-07-2012).
Could you please suggest me the urther procedures to be done as I dont want to take chance.
