Ultrasonographic and Mammographic Findings of Male Breast Disease.

Summary of "Ultrasonographic and Mammographic Findings of Male Breast Disease."

Most male breast diseases are benign, although malignancies can also occur. Gynecomastia, the most common abnormality in the male breast, has characteristic imaging findings differentiating it from cancer. Fewer than 1% of patients with breast cancer are men, but the incidence of male breast cancer is increasing worldwide. Additionally, breast cancer often presents at a more advanced stage in men than in women due to delayed diagnosis. Understanding imaging features of male breast disease is important for an accurate diagnosis and optimal care. This article reviews ultrasonography and mammography findings of benign and malignant diseases of the male breast.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Any neoplasms of the male breast. These occur infrequently in males in developed countries, the incidence being about 1% of that in females.

A common and benign breast disease characterized by varying degree of fibrocystic changes in the breast tissue. There are three major patterns of morphological changes, including FIBROSIS, formation of CYSTS, and proliferation of glandular tissue (adenosis). The fibrocystic breast has a dense irregular, lumpy, bumpy consistency.

A fluid-filled closed cavity or sac that is lined by an EPITHELIUM and found in the BREAST. It may appear as a single large cyst in one breast, multifocal, or bilateral in FIBROCYSTIC BREAST DISEASE.

A condition in which abnormal cells have not spread outside the duct, lobule, or nipple to other tissues of the breast. There are 3 types of breast carcinoma in situ: DUCTAL CARCINOMA IN SITU; LOBULAR CARCINOMA IN SITU; and PAGET DISEASE OF THE NIPPLE

A rare, benign, inflammatory breast disease occurring in premenopausal women shortly after a recent pregnancy. The origin is unknown but it is commonly mistaken for malignancy and sometimes associated with BREAST FEEDING and the use of ORAL CONTRACEPTIVES.
