Hello doctor,

I am a 27-year-old female with a lump in the breast and already have ultrasound and mammogram done but the doctor has suggested for biopsy.



Welcome to

Do you have any written report?

Thank you doctor,

Yes, I do have and I have attached it.



Welcome back to

I have seen the report (attachment removed to protect patient identity). It looks like a benign lesion, mostly fibroadenoma but better to have a biopsy report so that we can have a histopathological diagnosis.

Thank you doctor,

Actually, I have a family history. Grandmom and aunt were diagnosed with breast cancer.



Welcome back to

So, with such a positive family history, you should definitely go for a biopsy. Also, do BRCA1 and BRCA2 profile markers. Once we have the biopsy report, get back to me.
