  • Poland’s syndrome: amazia with absence of the sternal portion of the pectoralis major muscle
  • Accessory breast and nipples are usually due to persistence of the portions of the milk line which fail to disappear
  • This shows the condition is due to over sensitivity of breast tissue to oestrogen
  • Slight swelling in adolescent boys is normal; due to change in hormonal pattern
  • May have simply drawn the attention of the patient towards the lump

Benign breast disorders Benign breast disorders Presentation Transcript

  • OUTLINE  Anatomy (in brief)  Investigations  Anamolies  Injury to breast  Infections  Benign breast disease  Benign Neoplasms  Breast cysts  Nipple
  • INVESTIGATIONS  Mammography  Ultrasound  MRI  Needle biopsy/ cytology  Large-needle with vacuum system  Triple assessment
  • INVESTIGATIONS  Mammography  Direct radiograph  Exposure to low-voltage, high amperage Xrays  Exposure of 0.1 cGy (very low)  Sensitivity increases with age  Normal mammograph does not exclude carcinoma
  • INVESTIGATIONS  Ultrasound:  USG more useful in young women : as breast is more dense  Mammographs are difficult to interpret  Distinguish cysts from solid lesions  Locate impalpable lumps  Diagnosis of axillary pathology  USG guided aspiration and biopsy
  • INVESTIGATIONS  MRI  Distinguish scar from recurrence for women with previous surgeries  Becoming the standard when lobular ca is diagnosed  To assess the multicentricity and multifocality  Best imaging modality for women with implants  Less useful in axilla pathology  Biopsy possible but difficult than USG guided
  • INVESTIGATIONS  Needle biopsy / cytology  To obtain histology under local ansthesia  Spring loaded core needle biosy using 21G or 23G 10 ml syringe  Multiple passes with negative suction  Fixed or dried to view under microscope  Least invasive technique of obtaining a cell diagnosis  Receptor staining is possible  False negetives: cannot differentiate invasive carcinoma from in situ  Large-needle biopsy  Less sampling error  Using 8G or 11G  More helping in calcifications
  • INVESTIGATIONS  Triple Assessment  Clinical diagnosis  Imaging  Tissue diagnosis  Accuracy of 99.99%
  • ANAMOLIES  Amazia:  Athelia  Polymazia  Polythelia  Micro-mastia  Diffuse Hypertrophy  Gynacomastia
  • ANAMOLIES  Amazia:  Congenital absence of breast (unilateral/ bilateral)  More common in males  Poland’s syndrome*  Athelia  Congenital absence of nipple
  • ANAMOLIES  Polymazia  Accessory breast tissue  Along the “MILK LINE”  Axilla is the commonest site  Other sites: groin, thigh and buttocks*  They function during lactation  Treatment is excision  Polythelia  Multiple nipples along the “MILK LINE”
  • ANAMOLIES  Micromastia: due to hypo-functioning ovary (congenital defect); breasts are smaller  Diffuse Hypertrophy (Benign virginal hypertrophy)  Occurs sporadically in otherwise normal female  At puberty or first pregnancy  Enormous size (may reach upto knees when sitting)  Rarely unilateral  Pathophysiology unknown  Some response to anti-oestrogen drugs*  Plastic surgical repair is the only definitive treatment
  • ANAMOLIES  Gynacomastia  Breast-like swelling in males*  The breast is enlarged, not the nipple and areola  Unilateral/ bilateral  Mostly Physiological  Oestradiol excess  Testosterone deficiency
  • ANAMOLIES  Gynacomastia  Pathophysiology  Oestrogen excess: may result from an increase of oestradiol from  Testicular tumors  Leydig cell / Sartoli cell tumour  Choriocarcinoma  Embryonal carcinoma  Non testicular tumors  Adrenal cortical neoplasm  Lung carcinoma  Hepatocellular carcinoma  Endocrine disorders  Hyperthyroidism  Hypothyroidism  Liver cirhosis
  • ANAMOLIES  Gynacomastia  Pathophysiology  Androgen deficiency states  Aging  Kline-felter syndrome  Congenital anorchia  Heriditary defect in androgen biosynthesis  ACTH deficiency  Renal Failure  Secondary Testicular fauilure  Trauma  Orchitis  Crytochordism  Irridiation  Varicocoele
  • ANAMOLIES  Gynacomastia  Pathophysiology  Drugs  Oestrogen realted activity activity (Digitalis, Anabolic steroids)  Anti-testosterone ( cemitidine, phenytoin, spironolactone, diazepam)  Enhancing oestrogen activity (reserpine, theophylline, frusemide)  Pathology  Breast show fibro-fatty proliferation rather than acinar growth!!
  • ANAMOLIES  Gynacomastia  Clinical features  No complaints other than enlargement of breast  May be associated with slight pain  Breast tissue can be moved over the underlying muscle  Serious psychological consequences  Can be associated with various pathologies
  • ANAMOLIES  Gynacomastia  Treatment  Idiopathic gynacomastia resolves by itself so “wait and waitch”  Androgen deficiency: administer testosterone  Danazol, tamoxifene  No cause elicited: surgical excision by sub-areolar mastectomy  In case of suspected pathology: HPR should be sent for
  • INJURY TO BREAST  Haematoma:  Resolving haematoma gives impression of a lump  In the absence of an overlying bruise, diagnosis is difficult unless biopsied  Traumatic Fat Necrosis:  May be acute or chronic  Some sort of injury: Direct or Indirect  Diagnosis is confused with ca.  Prsents as a painless lump, firm and irregular  Some skin tethering  No retraction of nipple may be present)  No axillary lymph nodes  History of trauma*
  • INJURY TO BREAST  Traumatic Fat Necrosis:  Pathophysiology  Trauma  Focal necrosis of fat Inflammatory reaction  subsequent scarring to give rise to a focus of firmer consistency  Chronic cases mimic new lumps  Treatment:  Whenever in doubt excisional biopsy should be done
  • INFECTIONS  Acute Inflammatory Mastitis  Chronic Inflammatory Mastitis  Sub-areolar abscess  Duct ectesia / periductal mastitis  Mastitis of infants  Retromammary abscess  Tuberculosis  Syphilis  Mondor’s Disease
  • INFECTIONS  Acute Inflammatory Mastitis  Aetiology  Acute bacterial mastitis is very common: associated with lactation  Develepment of cracks and bruises in the nipple: ascending infection  Staph aureus infection, penicillin resistant if nosocomial*  Streptococcus cuases more toxic symptoms  Blockage of one or more of the lactiferous ducts with epithelial debris*  Retracted nipple*
  • INFECTIONS  Acute Inflammatory Mastitis  Clinical features  Acute mastitis  Redness, oedema, induration  Cellulitis  Abscess  Redness, oedema and induration are somewhat localized  Fluctuation is very difficult to elicit
  • INFECTIONS  Acute Inflammatory Mastitis  Treatment:  Cellulitis stage: breast support + local heat + analgesia + antibiotics  Feeding from the affected site can be continued if patient can manage  Absces stage: whenever pus has formed, it has to be let out  Antibiotics at this stage will lead to the formation of Antibioma*  Incision and drainage to be done*  Latest view: Repeated aspirations have the same result  Can be accomplished with USG guidance  No scar and patient can breast feed
  • INFECTIONS  Acute Inflammatory Mastitis  Treatment:  Incision and drainage: needed only if there is marked skin thinning  Radial incision in the most prominent part  Counter-incision if it is not the dependent part  Break all loculi  Pack loosely with gauze, drain may be kept  Give firm support.
  • INFECTIONS  Chronic Inflammatory Mastitis  Continuous antibiotic treatment  Improper drainage of the abscess  Too tight packing of the abscess cavity  Has thick fibrous cavity  May have sterile pus  May mimic carcinoma  Incision of the cavity wall and curettage of the walls
  • INFECTIONS  Sub-areolar abscess  Not a true mastitis  Results from an infected sebaceous gland of Montogomery of areola  Or follow a furuncle near the areola  Incision and drainage of pus OR excision of the sebaceous cyst
  • INFECTIONS  Sub-areolar abscess/ Periductal mastitis/ Duct ectesia/ Plasma cell mastitis  More common in smokers  Develops behind the nipple pointing towards the areola; avoiding the tough fibromuscular tissue of the areola  Dilatation of the larger peri-areolar ducts  Usually 6-8 ducts are involved, rest are normal  May be bilateral  Condition may mimic carcinoma with an indurated mass beneath the areola
  • INFECTIONS  Sub-areolar abscess/ Periductal mastitis/ Duct ectesia/ Plasma cell mastitis
  • INFECTIONS  Sub-areolar abscess/ Periductal mastitis/ Duct ectesia/ Plasma cell mastitis  Duct dilatation theories:  Hormonally induced muscular relaxation of duct wall  Inadequate absorption of secretions  Obstruction of duct with squamous debris (but how bilateral?)  Smoking  arteriopathy  periductal inflammation  damage to the duct wall  duct dilatation  stasis  infection or healing by fibrosis*.  Cessation of smoking prolongs the long term survival.
  • INFECTIONS  Sub-areolar abscess/ Periductal mastitis/ Duct ectesia/ Plasma cell mastitis  Clinical features  Mostly seen after menopause  Diffuse lump in the sub-areolar region  Differentiate with ca.  Nipple retraction (slit like)  Nipple discharge  Clasically it is thick and creamy / but may be greenish  Bloody discharge at times  Chronic milk fistula (on and off with abscess)  No adenopathy
  • INFECTIONS  Sub-areolar abscess/ Periductal mastitis/ Duct ectesia/ Plasma cell mastitis  Treatment:  Exclude malignancy by mammography  If unsure: excision of the mass  Antibiotics  Fistula; fistulectomy with excision of the involved duct  Recurrent plasma cell mastitis : Hadfield’s operation  Remove all the terminal ducts*
  • INFECTIONS  Mastitis of infants  Drop of colourless fluid can be expressed on the third day of life  Witch’s milk  Seen only in full-term infants  Cause: Stimulation by prolactin from the mother’s milk
  • INFECTIONS  Retromammary abscess:  This conditionis nothing to do with breasts  Infection arises from  Infected haematoma  Tuberculosis of the ribs  Osteomyletis of the ribs  Incision and drainage by Guillard Thomas incision  breast lifted and chest wall drained corrugated rubber drain kept dressing done.  Appropriate antibiotics

  • INFECTIONS  Mondor’s disease  Superficial thrombophlebitis of the superficial veins  No known cause  Not encountered in arm  Clinical feature:  Thrombosed sub-cutaneous chord, usually attached to the skin  May be painful and tender  When arm is raised; a groove alongside the vein is seen  Treatment: Rest to the arm and firm support to the breast*  D/D: lymphatic permeation of occult malignancy to be ruled out
  • BENIGN BREAST DISEASE (ANDI)  Concept:  Breast in in dynamic change throughout reproductive life  Super-imposed by menstrual cycles and pregnancies  Concept of ANDI was first given by L.E. Hughes of Cardiff University (1987)  This concept recognizes conditions as being within a spectrum from normal to mild abnormalities to disease process.
  • BENIGN BREAST DISEASE (ANDI)  Pathology:  The disease consists centrally of four features:  Cyst formation  Fibrosis  Hyperplasia  Papillomatosis
  • BENIGN BREAST DISEASE (ANDI)  Pathology:  Cyst formation: Two types of cysts are found  Simple cysts: Formed due to passive diffusion of plasma through simple membrane to cause cyst  Aspirate from simple cysts are similar to plasma in Na:K ratio  These are single and do not recur with no risk of malignancy  Complex cysts: Lined by apocrine epithelium cahractereised by large columnar cells like those in sweat glands  These cysts arise from a single lobule.*  The solitary draining duct is blocked and cysts become very large  Multiple cysts: but all may not be palpable
  • BENIGN BREAST DISEASE (ANDI)  Pathology:  Complex cysts:  Complex cysts tend to recur  May be associated with malignancy  Classic diffuse cystic disease :Schimmelbusch’s Disease  One large cyst becomes tense and blue domed: “Blue-domed cyst of Bloodgood”  Cysts usually contain greyish green desquamated cells  Cysts may contain blood due to haemorrhage
  • BENIGN BREAST DISEASE (ANDI)  Pathology:  Fibrosis: Fat and elastic tissue is replaced by white fibrous tissue  Interstitium is infiltrated with chronic inflammatore cells  This fibrous tissue compresses the ducts and distorts the acinar patterns.  Hyperplasia: Hyperplasia of epithelium of ducts and acini  Hyperplasia of both glandular and connective tissue  Ductal lumen may get full of cells  Can be a pre-malignant condition if epitheliosis is more  Papillomatosis: Hyperplasia may be extensive enough to cause papillomatous growth within the ducts
