Two hyperdense masses in the left breast and one on the right breast show marginal irregularity and spiculation containing fine calcifications, causing surrounding parenchymal distortion (BI-RADS 5).
Ultrasound guided core needle biopsy was performed for the bilateral breast masses, and histopathology evaluation confirmed invasive lobular carcinoma, which is more often multicentric and bilateral (10-15%).
