Case Discussion

As is usual with breast imaging (and the rest of radiology for that matter), hindsight is perfect. The actual fact is that it poses a learning opportunity even if you were not the reader of the previous studies. 

Understandably this case alarmed the patient and she was very relieved when the lesion turned out to be a fibroadenoma on biopsy.
