Discussion of Fibroadenolipoma
- Fibroadenolipoma is AKA hamartoma of the breast
- Benign proliferation of fibrous, glandular, and fatty tissue surrounded by a thin capsule of connective tissue.
- "BREAST WITHIN A BREAST"
- Majority of these lesions occur in women over 35 years of age.
- When the lesion is asymptomatic and demonstrates a typical mammographic appearance, the patient can be followed up mammographically without the need for US or intervention.
 Imaging Findings for Fibroadenolipoma
- At mammography, fibroadenolipoma are typically well-circumscribed, round to oval masses containing both fat and soft-tissue density with a thin, radiopaque pseudocapsule.
- At US, a sharply defined, heterogeneous oval mass is seen, or the lesion may manifest as normal glandular tissue.
