The most common benign lesion encountered was fibrocystic change, followed by sclerosing adenosis.
9-cm fibroadenoma existing within a surrounding area of hyalinised stroma and sclerosing adenosis (Figure 3).
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.
Myoepithelial cells are present in the normal mammary duct system and are often prominent in benign lesions, such as usual ductal hyperplasia, sclerosing adenosis, and intraductal papilloma.
5) Diagnostic results can be false positive due to misinterpretation of lobular cancerization and sclerosing adenosis.
Pathologic findings for 32 foci biopsied from 27 patients after abnormalities were identified on MRI Pathologic finding Number of foci Malignant 14 (44%) Infiltrating ductal 11 Infiltrating lobular 1 Ductal carcinoma in situ 2 Benign 18 (56%) Papilloma 4 Stromal fibrosis 3 Ductal/lobular hyperplasia 3 Fibrocystic changes 3 Fibroadenoma 2 Sclerosing adenosis 2 Cyst 1
However, when one of the nation's foremost breast cancer researchers examined Denise's biopsy, he discovered that the sample didn't reveal cancer but sclerosing adenosis, a benign but unusual and complicated pattern of cell growth that mimics cancer.
The opposite breast biopsy showed a radial sclerosing lesion in a background of extensive, proliferative, fibrocystic changes including florid sclerosing adenosis and the usual ductal hyperplasia with microcalcifications.
Our practice recommends short-term follow-up for benign-appearing lesions such as fibroadenomas, fibrocystic disease, sclerosing adenosis, and proliferative changes.
Sclerosing adenosis is a rare benign lesion arising in the transition zone of the prostate, characterized by a cellular proliferation of variably sized glands and solid nests surrounded by basement membrane material in a cellular stroma, which can be myxoid at times.
10) None of the aforementioned features are specific to radial scar and they can be seen in carcinomas, scars, or sclerosing adenosis.
Sclerosing adenosis and calcification accompanied nearly every case.
