Breast tubular adenoma

Yousif Salem, Abber Farhan, Noof Alshaibani


We present a case of a young woman, with no known comorbidities, who presented with bilateral breasts lumps noted 6 months prior to her initial clinic visit. On examination, both breast masses were felt bilaterally. The masses were completely excised, and histopathologic examination confirmed the diagnosis of breast tubular adenoma. This report aimed to present a rare benign breast neoplasm and discuss the challenges in the diagnosis and management of such condition.
