- An 80-year-old Caucasian male with multiple chronic medical problems presented to his primary care physician for routine health maintenance exam
- Family history was significant for:
- Daughter who developed a fallopian tube carcinoma at the age of 45 followed by breast cancer
- Family history of pancreatic cancer and cardiovascular disease
Core biopsies of this mass were obtained
- Physical examination: unremarkable with the exception of an inverted left nipple with a palpable 2 x 2 cm retro-areolar mass
- Clinical laboratory evaluation: unremarkable except for an elevated serum PSA (2.3 mg/L)
- Mammography: irregular focal area of asymmetry in the left retro-areolar region measuring 2.5 cm without associated micro-calcifications
- Ultrasound: left retro-areolar region showed an irregular hypo-echoic area measuring 1.6 cm without significant posterior enhancement or shadowing

A 44 year old woman underwent excision of new mammographic calcifications in the left breast. The diagnosis was "intraductal carcinoma, solid type with comedonecrosis and calcifications, close to the margin". Re-excision yielded the findings shown in Figures 1-5; the findings in figure 6 were not noted. More surgery followed, showing "multifocal LCIS, extending into ducts, with foci of comedonecrosis, present at two distinct foci of the inked resection margin." The patient received no radiotherapy.
Case 4 - Slide 1
Submitted by: Gary Tse - Prince of Wales Hospital, Hong Kong, China
A 50 year old lady presented with a 4.7 cm mass in the right breast. There was no nipple discharge. There was also a previous history of breast lump removed from the same breast 2 years ago.
Physical examination showed the mass to be hard to palpation, but was not adherent to the skin or underlying tissue. There was no axillary lymphadenopathy.
The breast lump was excised and the section is a representative sampling of this breast mass.
