Epidermal cyst of the breast: detection in a screening programme.

Author information

Department of Radiology, St Vincent's Hospital, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.


Two cases of epidermal cyst of the breast, a rare benign condition, were detected during a 3-year period in a mammographic screening programme, from 57,954 screening examinations. It is not uncommon for epidermal cysts to be initially misdiagnosed. The mammographic, ultrasound and histological features are presented. It is recommended that these lesions be resected because they possibly have malignant potential.
