Infiltrating ductal carcinoma

Case contributed by Dr Garth Kruger


A young woman presents with a palpable mass in her left breast

Patient Data

Age: 32
Gender: Female

This lesion was described as likely being a fibroadenoma.

Case Discussion

This lesion is not a fibroadenoma. The lesion is poorly circumscribed, has no pseudocapsule, shows multiple lobulations and is as tall as it is wide. In fact this lesion does not have a single characteristic of a fibroadenoma.

The lesion was biopsied 3 months later because it had enlarged. This is an IDC.
