The diagnosis of prostatic cancer is based on a combination of architectural, cytological and ancillary features but accurate tissue diagnosis can become very difficult due to the presence of either a small focus of cancer or due to the presence of many benign mimickers of malignancy like adenosis.
The areas of abnormal enhancement had been sampled in 2011, and at that time, pathology results had revealed sclerosing adenosis.
The dataset consisted of 29 malignancies and 28 benign lesions, as follows: 22 invasive carcinomas (2 lobular, 20 invasive ductal carcinoma), 7 invasive + ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), 9 fibroadenomas, 6 fibrocystic changes, 4 sclerosing adenosis, 2 lymph nodes, 2 proliferative dysplasia, 1 fat necrosis, 1 columnar cell hyperplasia without atypia, 1 epithelial hyperplasia, 1 post-surgical scar, 1 radial scar (a border-line lesion which was excised after initial diagnosis at core biopsy, with the same result, and therefore it was considered benign in this study).
The most common benign lesion encountered was fibrocystic change, followed by sclerosing adenosis.
It covers histopathology, the human papillomavirus, examination using colposcopy, colposcopy of the normal cervix, cytology and screening, diagnosis, management, and vaginal, vulval, perianal, and anal intraepithelial neoplasia, as well as genital tract adenosis and infective and other conditions causing confusion in diagnosis.
2-3) Complex fibroadenomas contain other proliferative changes such as sclerosing adenosis, duct epithelial hyperplasia, and epithelial calcification and are associated with slightly increased risk of cancer.

Benign lesions included fibrocystic disease, sclerosing adenosis, fibroadenoma, ductal ectasia and lipoid necrosis.
In contrast, in cases of sclerosing adenosis, a benign breast lesion, ATM is expressed in both the epithelial and myoepithelial cells.
5) Diagnostic results can be false positive due to misinterpretation of lobular cancerization and sclerosing adenosis.
Once more common causes of unilateral breast swelling are excluded, less common etiologies, such as duct ectasia, mammary adenosis or fat necrosis, and blunt force trauma, should be considered.
