Case Studies

A 34-year-old, gravida 2, para 1, previously healthy African-American woman presented with a right breast mass on self-examination in the second trimester of pregnancy.

A 56-year-old man presented with a 4.5-cm leftsided renal mass incidentally discovered on an ultrasound performed for workup of lupus nephritis. On dedicated contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the tumor was found to be avidly enhancing.

A 55-year-old perimenopausal woman presented with a palpable lump in her left breast. Diagnostic mammogram showed a 1.8-cm spiculated mass with scattered microcalcifications within the mass. Comparison with her most recent prior mammogram (about 9 months earlier) showed this to be a new mass.

A 60-year-old man presented with lower limb claudication and a painful mass on his left buttock. Physical examination revealed a firm round mass, fixed to deep planes. A biopsy was performed and revealed a chordoma.

A 55-year-old Hispanic male presents with a family history of gastric cancer in one sibling and prostate cancer in an older brother. CT performed in March 2015 for IMT surveillance showed a heterogeneous prostate with local invasion involving the bladder, seminal vesicles, and perirectal fat.

A 14-year-old, otherwise healthy adolescent male originally presented to his primary care physician with abdominal pain and distention. Ultrasound revealed a complex mass with cystic components along the superior pole of the bladder and bilateral hydroureteronephrosis down to the level of the bladder.

A 42-year-old man presented with increasing right hip pain that limited his ability to walk. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a right lytic acetabular lesion. Further work-up included a computed tomography (CT) scan, which revealed an 8-cm left kidney tumor.
