:eek: I recently had a core needle breast biopsy done and my report said I had fibrocystic changes with pseudoangiomatous stromal hyperplasia. After looking this up I discovered it is a rare breast mass but what should be my follow-up. I have a very large palpable, mass and a lot of pain associated with it. My concern is that I have multiple microcalcifications as well and when reading articles about PASH none of the masses had calcifications. I also have a lymph node in my neck which is enlarged and has been for 4 months (the same time I discovered the breast mass). I saw an ENT and he does not think the two are related. Please give any advice if you all have any!! THANKS (I am 34 with no previous breast change history)

  • I was diagnosed with PASH, but only after it was removed in surgery. I had a needle biopsy to test for malignancy prior to having the surgery. The biopsy came back negative. At that time, the doctor thought the mass was a large fibroadenoma. (I had had a fibroadenoma removed from the same breast a few years before.)It was only after the new mass was removed and tested by the pathologist that it was diagnosed as PASH. I've had a sonogram followup (8 months after surgery) and everything looks good. The mass has not returned.I assume that by now you have taken care of this situation. I hope everything turned out well.
