The lumps can range in size from very tiny to quite large. The texture of the armpit lump may vary according to what is causing it. For example, a cyst, infection or fatty growth may feel soft to the touch. However, fibroadenomas and cancerous tumors may feel hard and immobile.

Previous Section Next Section Introduction The vast majority of the lesions that occur in the breast are benign. Much concern is given to malignant lesions of the breast because breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women in Western countries; however, benign lesions of the breast are far more frequent than malignant ones [ 1 — 9 ]. With the use of mammography, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging of the breast and the extensive use of needle biopsies, the diagnosis of a benign breast disease can be accomplished without surgery in the majority of patients. Because the majority of benign lesions are not associated with an increased risk for subsequent breast cancer, unnecessary surgical procedures should be avoided. The incidence of benign breast lesions begins to rise during the second decade of life and peaks in the fourth and fifth decades, as opposed to malignant diseases, for which the incidence continues to increase after menopause, although at a less rapid pace [ 2 —1 4 ]. In this review, the most frequently seen benign lesions of the breast are summarized as developmental abnormalities, inflammatory lesions, fibrocystic changes, stromal lesions, and neoplasms.

Abstract Objectives Hyperechogenicity has been strongly associated with benign breast lesions. Although it is correct in most cases, hyperechogenicity must not always be considered synonymous with benignancy, as hyperechoic breast cancers do occur. The purpose of this study was to review clinical and imaging characteristics of hyperechoic breast lesions, looking for features associated with malignancy. Methods Institutional Review Board approval was granted for this research. A total of 19, sonographic examinations were performed between January and June
