Abstract

Cavernous hemangioma of the breast is a rare benign vascular tumor. It is usually diagnosed as non-palpable mass during imaging examination, incidentally. Common sonographic finding of the breast hemangioma is a superficially located, oval shape, circumscribed margin mass. But the appearance of breast hemangioma is variable and it can be difficult to diagnose in preoperatively. Here, we report a 68-year-old female case with palpable breast mass and increased size on follow up ultrasonography.
