Lobular carcinoma left breast

Case contributed by Dr Garth Kruger


Routine screening study left breast

Patient Data

Age: 65
Gender: Female

The small density high up in the left breast was new compared with previous. Included is the obligatory digital arrow unfortunately saved to PACS.


These are two ultrasound images of the 6 x 4 mm lesion.

Case Discussion

This lesion on biopsy turned out to be an infiltrating lobular carcinoma of the left breast. Previous screening on this lady 2 years before was normal. Luckily this is a fatty breast; it would be quite difficult if the breast was dense to find a small lesion like this.
