Papillary Proliferation Lesion
Can a papillary proliferation lesion in the breast disappear as seen in one ultrasound and mammogram and two months later not be able to be found again on the ultrasound?
Without treatment it is unlikely that a papillary proliferative lesion would disappear. However, you must have had a biopsy to find what the lesion was. And sometimes the needle biopsy removes the entire lesion. This area should be followed closely with follow-up imaging.
