Miscellaneous Conditions

A 77-year-old man presented to the breast unit with a one-week history of a lump in the left breast. He described the lump as being on the “edge of the nipple” and had noticed some indrawing thereof but no nipple discharge. His general health was otherwise good, and he reported no recent weight loss or unusual cough or back pain. He was taking no regular medication and had no family history of breast cancer.
