ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Simple Cyst, Left Breast

History: Routine screening mammogram, patient called back for further evaluation of abnormality. Clinically asymptomatic with respect to the breasts. No personal or family history of breast cancer and no other significant risk factors.

Findings: On the initial screening CC and MLO views of the left breast, there is an ill-defined nodular density in the middle third, inferomedial, new from the prior exam. Patient was recalled for additional evaluation. Spot compression views reveal a well-cirmscribed nodule/mass. Lesion was further localized with a true lateral view and evaluated with ultrasound, demonstrating an anechoic mass with no complexity and good posterior enhancement.

Ddx: Before ultrasound: -Cyst -Fibroadenoma -Papilloma -Well-circumscribed malignancy After ultrasound: -Simple cyst. (Roentgen Classic)

Dxhow: Ultrasound.

Exam: Normal clinical breast exam.

No MeSH data available.


True lateral veiw (lateral-to-medial beam path).  The lesion, being in the medial breast, is now closer to the film cassette, and therefore is much more sharply defined.  This "additional" view can often be helpful in problem solving such medial lesions.
