Breast cancer (CT)

Case contributed by Dr Mohammad Taghi Niknejad


Left breast palpable mass and swelling.

Patient Data

Age: 40 years
Gender: Female

An irregular mass at the left breast is associated with increased dermal thickness.

Case Discussion

This mass was pathologically confirmed to be an invasive ductal carcinoma

Although CT is not a modality we usually think of when discussing the primary diagnosis of breast cancer, the breasts are imaged on all chest CTs and should be a region of review.
