The Tyrer-Cuzick TC prediction model was used to estimate the individual background risk of developing breast cancer in the next 10 years. Histological features of granular cell breast tumors which are more suggestive of malignancy include a larger size tumor greater than 5cmcellular and nuclear pleomorphism, increased mitotic activity, prominent nucleoli, and the presence of necrosis. Local recurrence is typically rapid, however, usually within 1 year of the original surgery. An additional aim was to assess the agreement between two methods of measuring mammographic density. Breast granular cell tumors are usually benignbut there are some rare examples of malignant presentation.
Some features of this site may not work without it.
Granular Cell Tumor of the breast
Mammographic density was estimated using the fully-automated volumetric Volpara method and expressed as absolute dense volume, non-dense volume, and per cent dense volume. Mammograms tend to show a suspicious, spiculated mass, possibly with infiltrative margins. An additional aim was to assess the agreement between two methods of measuring mammographic density. Granular cell breast tumors tend to be slow growing and solitary. After taking the TC background year risk of breast cancer into account, alcohol consumption was only associated with breast cancer risk among women at moderate background risk.
