Granular cell tumor, traumatic fat necrosis and radial scar are benign breast diseases that can mimic breast malignancy, therefore it is important to understand the underlying pathophysiologic processes.
The non-calcified stellate lesions (granular cell tumor and traumatic fat necrosis) and architectural distortion (traumatic fat necrosis and radial scar) may cause a considerable differential diagnostic problem for the radiologist reading and interpreting mammograms. These benign breast diseases can mimic breast malignancy, therefore it is important to understand the underlying pathophysiologic processes leading to the development of these benign lesions. Correlation with large format thin and thick section histopathology images help understanding the capabilities and limitations of the diagnostic tools.
