Figure 4:
Mammograms revealed no mass or spiculated lesion noted at the sight of the subtle dimpling and stable calcifications.
Figure 5:
BSGI showed a large area of increase uptake in the upper inner quadrant and other small intense focus at retroareolar region of the right breast.
Figure 6:
Second look ultrasound showed irregular hypoechoic mass at 6 o’clock position
