70. Efficiency of Imaging Modalities in Male Breast Disease: Can Ultrasound Give Additional Information for Assessment of Gynecomastia Evolution?

Efficiency of Imaging Modalities in Male Breast Disease: Can Ultrasound Give Additional Information for Assessment of Gynecomastia Evolution? Original Article Introduction Most male patients who have breast complaints admit with similar symptoms and physical examination findings. Overwhelming majority of male breast problem is benign and includes gynecomastia (1). Male breast cancer forms 0.17% of all male cancers and 0.5-1% of all breast cancers (2). The key point to distinguish gynecomastia (...) from a malignant mass is the presence of a palpable lump without a mass located beneath the nipple or skin thickening neither nipple retraction. Despite these indicators, it is not easy to distinguish gynecomastia from malignant masses with physical examination. Previously, imaging was not performed in men with a palpable breast mass (3). A high positive predictive value, sensitivity and speci?city have been reported for both mammography (MG) and breast ultrasound (US) for diag- nosing male breast
