Once the mass has reached the size of a small garden pea, it can be detected by palpation.

Breast masses are not always malignant. Benign fibrocystic breast disease is not uncommon. A fine needle biopsy aspiration can distinguish a cystic mass from a solid one. ICD-9-CM 611.72 is a billable medical code that can be used to specify a diagnosis on a reimbursement claim. ]
