S A Olarinoye-Akorede, B T Silas
Mondor's disease is a self-limiting sclerosing angitis mostly affecting the superficial veins of the breast and chest wall. It is seldom diagnosed, and its etiology and epidemiology are speculative. However, numerous predisposing factors including breast cancer have been postulated. In Nigerian literature, only two cases have been documented to the best of our knowledge. This report is aimed at reminding breast specialists to include it as a diagnostic consideration in patients presenting with a breast lump in the appropriate clinical setting...

Cancer is the second important morbidity and mortality factor among women and the most incident type is breast cancer. This paper suggests a hybrid computational intelligence model based on unsupervised and supervised learning techniques, i.e., self-organizing map (SOM) and complex-valued neural network (CVNN), for reliable detection of breast cancer. The dataset used in this paper consists of 822 patients with five features (patient's breast mass shape, margin, density, patient's age, and Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System assessment)...

INTRODUCTION: Until now, no studies have investigated whether women other than those with dense breasts are suitable for adjunctive ultrasonography after negative mammography, and investigated whether all women with negative mammography are suitable for adjunctive ultrasonography. METHODS: Based on the Multi-modality Independent Screening Trial in China, a total of 31,918 women aged 45 to 65 years underwent both ultrasonography and mammography. Physicians performed ultrasonography and mammography separately and were blinded to each other's findings until their interpretations had been recorded...

Breast cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed and death-related cancers in women worldwide. Mammography is routinely used for screening and invasive examinations such as painful tissue biopsies were recommended for patients with abnormal screening outcomes. However, a considerable proportion of these cases turn out to be benign lesions. Thus, novel non-invasive approach for discriminating breast cancer from benign lesions is desirable. Herein, we applied a high-throughput ultra performance liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-ESI-MS/MS) analysis to determine the oxidative DNA damage biomarker, 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-oxodG) in urine samples from 60 patients with early-stage breast cancer (stage I, II), 51 patients with benign breast diseases and 73 healthy volunteers...

Idiopathic granulomatous mastitis (IGM), is a rare entity of chronic inflammatory disorder of the breast of unknown etiology. Very few cases have been described so far, almost exclusively in women. Here we describe a case of IGM in a 53-year-old man presented with a right breast mass, progressively enlarging during the last 6 months. Due to the findings of clinical examination and CT-scan, the suspicion for a potentially malignant lesion was given and the decision for surgical resection was made. Microscopic analysis of the specimen showed non-caseating granulomas around mammary lobules, findings compatible with IGM...

Gynecomastia refers to an enlargement of the male breast caused by benign proliferation of the glands ducts and stromal components including fat. It is the most common form of breast swelling seen in adolescent males. During pubertal development, gynecomastia can develop as a result of transient relative imbalances between androgens and estrogens. Pubertal gynecomastia is self-limited in 75 to 90% of adolescents and regresses over 1 to 3 years. However it may cause significant psychological stress and depression in adolescents...

Breast Cancer (BC) has associated risk factors and genetic factors like BRCA1, and BRCA2. Many benign and malignant disease processes are found concurrently with BC and believed to be additional risk factors like gall bladder stones (cholelithiasis), hypertension, diabetes mellitus, cerebrovascular lesions, arthritis, spine and spinal cord degenerative lesions, infertility, depression, sleep disturbances, obesity, autoimmune diseases (SLE), and thyroid diseases. There are some malignant disease associations like synchronous or metachronous ovarian, colonic and endometrial tumours with Breast cancer...

Fibromatosis of the breast is a rare benign disease compromising <0.2% of all primary breast tumors. Although the chest wall is a common location, occurrences of implant-associated fibromatosis of the breast are extremely rare; only 33 cases have been reported. We present a case of a 42-year-old female who underwent breast augmentation with silicone breast implants, and 2 years later developed an aggressive implant-associated fibromatosis of the breast and chest wall. On imaging studies, the tumor mimicked breast carcinoma, and despite chemotherapy, the fibromatosis rapidly enlarged and was locally invasive requiring wide surgical excision...

PURPOSE: Sclerosing adenosis (SA), found in ¼ of benign breast disease (BBD) biopsies, is a histological feature characterized by lobulocentric proliferation of acini and stromal fibrosis and confers a two-fold increase in breast cancer risk compared to women in the general population. We evaluated a NanoString-based gene expression assay to model breast cancer risk using RNA derived from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) biopsies with SA. METHODS: The study group consisted of 151 women diagnosed with SA between 1967 and 2001 within the Mayo BBD cohort, of which 37 subsequently developed cancer within 10 years (cases) and 114 did not (controls)...

Mammary-like glands are a normal anatomical component of the anogenital region. The tumors occurring in them morphologically mimic the similar diseases of the breast. The paper presents a case of vulvar fibroadenoma with leaf-like outgrowths and apocrine metaplasia in a 38-year-old female patient. It describes the clinical and morphological characteristics of fibroadenomas and benign phyllodes tumors in the anogenital region.

CONTEXT: - Breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is now used routinely for high-risk screening and in the evaluation of the extent of disease in newly diagnosed breast cancer patients. Morphologic characteristics and the kinetic pattern largely determine how suspicious a breast lesion is on MRI. Because of its high sensitivity, MRI identifies a large number of suspicious lesions. However, the low to moderate specificity and the additional cost have raised questions regarding its frequent use...

BACKGROUND: Breast lesions not sampled prior to surgery or initially diagnosed as fibroepithelial lesions on core biopsy may have a diagnosis of phyllodes tumor (PT) on excision. Historically, re-excision for close or positive margins has been the standard of care. We examined the rate of re-excision for close or positive margins in patients with benign phyllodes and compared recurrence rates among those undergoing re-excision versus observation. METHODS: We identified all patients with phyllodes tumor diagnosed between 2003 and 2013...

Idiopathic granulomatous mastitis (IGM) is a rare benign disease, characterized by chronic inflammation and granulomatous disease process. A middle aged lady with breast lump for six months with equivocal mammographic and ultrasound results underwent lumpectomy and biopsy. Ruling out all other possible granulomatous diseases and malignancy, a diagnosis of IGM was made. IGM becomes clinically significant as it closely mimics carcinoma breast and some inflammatory and infectious pathology.

INTRODUCTION: Breast cancer is known as a leading cause of cancer-related death among women all over the world. Biomarkers facilitate diagnosis at the earliest possible stage and better prognosis of the disease. Hence, may help to improve the overall survival rate among breast cancer patients. To find a better diagnostic/prognostic marker we evaluated human tissue kallikrein 7 (hK7) as biomarker of breast cancer. hK7 is a secreted serine protease having chymotrypsin like activity. Serum hK7 is known to have aberrant expression in ovarian and prostate cancer but has not been yet studied in breast cancer...

BACKGROUND: Noncoding RNAs play an important role in human carcinogenesis. YRNAs, a novel class of noncoding RNAs, have been identified as biomarkers in breast cancer patients. OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that YRNA expression is dysregulated in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC). DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: We first measured the expression of all known YRNAs (hY1, hY3, hY4, and hY5) in a screening cohort (30 ccRCC and 15 normal renal tissues)...
