Modality:

Breast Ultrasound and Mammography

Report Of Fibroadenoma BIRADS(II):

Mediolateral oblique and Craniocaudal views of left breast mammogram show an oval-shaped homogeneous mass in upper inner quadrant which has relatively smooth and well-defined border. There is no microcalcification or architectural distortion.

On ultrasound images, the lesion is homogeneously hypoechoic with lobulated but distinct margins with posterior acoustic shadowing.

Diagnosis:

Fibroadenoma BIRADS(II)

Key Points:

Fibroadenomas are the most common well-defined solid masses seen on mammography. They are homogenous but frequently show large, coarse calcifications. They may have a lobulated contour, but there are usually only a few large lobulations. If a fibroadenoma is not calcified, it cannot be distinguished from a cyst by mammography. Sonography will allow characterization of fibroadenomas as solid hypoechoic masses. The peak age of patients with clinically detected fibroadenomas is 20 to 30 years; however, fibroadenomas are seen into the eighth decade. They rarely appear or grow after menopause.[:de]
