Tubular adenomas of the breast: imaging findings with histologic correlation.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study is to describe the imaging features of tubular adenomas, which are rare benign breast tumors usually found in women younger than 35 years old. CONCLUSION: In young women, tubular adenomas can look like noncalcified fibroadenomas on mammography and sonography. In older women, tubular adenomas may resemble malignant masses with microcalcifications. Awareness of these findings may help in assessing concordance between imaging and histologic findings after percutaneous core biopsy of these rare lesions.
