Description

Breast lymphomas only account for approximately 0.15% of malignant breast carcinomas. Half of these are primary lymphomas, and the other half are metastatic to the breast. Ultrasound elastography has been proven to aid in the diagnosis of breast lesions as malignant or benign, with malignancy appearing stiffer compared with normal breast tissue. However, in this study, we review the findings of breast lymphoma on strain and shear wave ultrasonography. Lymphoma appears drastically different on sonoelastography than primary breast cancers, and it could easily be interpreted as benign. Therefore, the unique imaging findings in addition to the patient's clinical history are important in differentiating lymphoma of the breast from other possible diagnoses.
