Well-Circumscribed Lesions on Mammography

Breast cancers that can appear as well-circumscribed masses on mammography include:
  • Medullary carcinoma:
  • Mucinous carcinoma:
  • Papillary carcinoma: Intraductal or intracystic
  • Invasive ductal carcinoma:
  • Ductal carcinoma in situ:
  • Primary lymphoma:
  • Metastasis:
  • Phyllodes tumor: Benign or malignant
  • Sarcoma of breast:
These usually turn out not to be completely well-circumscribed on magnification views.
