Post surgical breast scar

Case contributed by Dr Garth Kruger

Patient Data

Gender: Female
Ultrasound

Post surgical scar can be confused with infiltrating ductal carcinoma.

The surgical scar is a clue. remember the area of distortion can be some way from the incision; surgeons dig around.

The clue is the lesion is hypoechoic and does not have a central mass lesion. There is no "effort" to tumor formation.
