Hello doctor,

There is a small lump in the breast. I have no pain or any other type of side effects also. But, as per the doctor's advise, I have gone for FNAC test. Please explain what is the problem.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have seen your attached FNAC report (attachment removed to protect patient identity). It is suggestive of a fibroadenoma which is a very common and mostly harmless condition. It occurs as a result of some hormonal changes during the course of development of the breast. So, there is nothing to worry about if it is small in size (4 cm to 5 cm). You would need a biopsy if it is greater than 5 cm.

Please get an ultrasound breast done and follow up with the report. Then I can advice you regarding, what to do next.
