Case of the week (week 51, 2021)

MammoScreen® can help not to confuse a suspicious mass with an intramammary lymph node:

Screening mammogram, 73 years old patient.

Family history of breast cancer: mother and maternal aunt.

Emergence of a 6mm superior-internal mass with circumscribed contours, 9cm far from the nipple, pointed by MammoScreen as “indeterminate”.

Ultrasound revealed a round hypoechoic lesion with a peripheral hyperechoic halo of 6mm radius.

3 microbiopsies under ultrasound guidance were performed, a clip was placed.

Biopsy positive for cancer.

*Case from Valenciennes hospital.
