Bilobed breast cyst

Case contributed by Dr Garth Kruger


This 35-year-old lady booked a breast ultrasound because her iridologist told her she had a breast lesion.

Patient Data

Age: 35 years
Gender: Female

Bilobed complex cyst at 1 o'clock. Prosthesis deep to the lesion. Not clinically palpable.

Case Discussion

The references include the only article I could find where an iridologist was asked to examine control subjects and cancer patients. There was no link between the medical diagnoses and the iris findings.

All this having been said there are anecdotal cases like this everywhere; the iridologist sends a patient and a lesion turns up serendipitously. I recall having been told by a good friend of one case (actually in Australia) where the patient indeed had a breast carcinoma but came back some years later with an MRI diagnosed contralateral metachronous carcinoma because her iridologist in Germany had told her her cancer was "back".
