Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


I in recent times had a breast biopsy. I received a call from the nurse with the results and didn’t entirely understand what she said. I have a sclerosing papillary lesion, and the breast surgeon's center will reach out to me for a follow-up appointment to determine the next steps. What does this mean, and what can I expect?

Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


A benign (non-cancerous) area of hardened tissue in the breast that resembles a scar when viewed under a microscope, so you don't have to worry! They will surgically remove the hardened tissue, and everything will be fine! It's natural to feel anxious or uncertain at this time, but remember that many breast abnormalities turn out to be benign. It's essential to follow up with your healthcare provider and ask any questions you have to ensure you understand your diagnosis and treatment options fully. If you're feeling overwhelmed, don't hesitate to seek support from friends, family, or a counselor.


Thanks & Regards
