Can The Clinic by Cleveland Clinic Provide Second Opinions on All BI-RADS 3 Breast Abnormalities?

The Clinic by Cleveland Clinic can provide second opinions on all BI-RADS 3 breast abnormalities, including:

  • Fibroadenomas – These are benign tumors that develop in the breast. They often feel firm and rubbery. 
  • Cysts – Cysts are fluid-filled sacs that can develop in the breasts. They’re usually noncancerous but may need to be drained if they become painful. 
  • Papillomas – Papillomas are small, wart-like growths that grow in the ducts of your breasts. These are usually harmless but can cause discharge from the nipple. 
  • Sclerosing adenosis – This condition causes small lumps in the breasts, which may be painful. It’s not associated with an increased risk of cancer. 
  • Radial scars – These small clusters of cells can appear similar to breast cancer on a mammogram but are actually benign.
