Asymptomatic solitary breast lump



43 years old female with breast lump discovered during routine physical by family doctor.
A well-defined, homogenous, hypoechoic mass with edge shadowing was noted on 2 o'clock 3cm from nipple of the left breast. The mass measuring 1.66 cm x 0.89 cm x 1.20cm. The margin is well-defined but the outline is lobulated. There is a thin halo around the lesion. No assocaited calcification. No peripheral or intralesional vascularity was noted. No other masses was detected.
Conclusion:
Solitary left breast mass.
The presence of halo suggests that it is a benign mass such as Fibroadenoma.
However, considering the size (almost 2cm), single lesion and patient's age, further investigation is required.
