Case contributed by Dr Garth Kruger

Routine screening mammogram

Patient Data

Gender: Female
Mammography

Note the subtle density of both views deep in the breast.

Ultrasound

The lesion on ultrasound of the left breast with heterogeneous echogenicity.

Case Discussion

Another case of lobular carcinoma just to allow you to tune your eye. Note the parenchymal density very similar to the other case in the right breast.

Don't ignore those asymmetrical parenchymal densities even if they do not change with time or your partner did not work it up last year. Work them up. If its nothing that's fine. Always add ultrasound.
