Fibroadenoma

Fig. 12.3a These coarse calcifications are a typical mammographic finding associated with a fibroadenoma. They are reminiscent of popcorn. The soft tissue mass of the actual adenoma is also visible. b Sonographically, a fibroadenoma typically displays a homogeneous internal echo and a regular and smooth border. The echo shadow is minimal, just barely different from the surrounding glandular parenchyma.
