Galactocele

Milk Cyst


Presentation

  • A typical clinical and histopathologic presentation of galactocele was followed with a complete excision. CONCLUSION: This was a 27th well documented case of galactocele in a male infant with typical clinical and histopathologic presentation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Surgeons performing breast augmentation should be aware of the clinical presentation as well as the treatment options for this entity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present here a case of 26 years old lactating female who presented with swelling in the right breast for 8 months. The swelling was firm, discrete, non-tender and mobile involving the upper inner quadrant of right breast.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In conclusion, these late complications rarely present after large-volume injections of PAAG for breast augmentation. The PAAG-related pathologic inflammatory tissue changes are suggested as the pathogenesis for the complication.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • BACKGROUND: Clinical, radiologic and pathologic evaluation of a breast mass during pregnancy and lactation often presents a challenge.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Aspiration
  • She underwent cyst aspiration which revealed milky fluid. Fat globules were identified with microscopic examination, confirming the diagnosis of a galactocele. Aspiration resolved the mass.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • However, sonography-guided aspiration was done for confirmation. RESULT: We could confirm the galactocele arising in axillary accessory breast tissue.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Fine needle aspiration (FNA) yields milky fluid that is often both diagnostic and therapeutic.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Aspiration, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are useful and sensitive tools for diagnosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Pain from treatment was reported by all patients in the aspiration method while there were none in the nylon probing method (p 0.001). The aspiration method took 14.8 minutes less time than the nylon probing method (p 0.001).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Suggestibility
  • Based on the histological and immunohistochemical findings, they suggest that the rare and intriguing process that is exclusively observed in males in the absence of any detectable hormonal stimulation at time of investigation could represent a developmental[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Histology of the core specimens revealed a fragment of fibrous capsule suggesting that the core biopsy had created a fistula between the breast tissue and the peri-implant space. Bromocriptine was given and the galactocele slowly resolved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The PAAG-related pathologic inflammatory tissue changes are suggested as the pathogenesis for the complication. Trauma and breastfeeding are considered to be stimulating factors.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • When we have consulted our gyne she said that it can be Galactocele...and asked us to consult a surgeon..as it has to be removed through injection....ofcourse we dnt want that...can some one suggest some remedy...URGENT Advertisement Recent posts in Toddler[babycenter.in]
  • The leader of the group suggested that I go to the physiotherapist for a therapeutic ultrasound. The idea is that the ultrasound breaks down some of the tissue in the lump so things can start moving again.[balladbabyjail.wordpress.com]
Withdrawn
  • Ultrasound-guided needle aspiration was performed on the lesions and a white milk product containing fat and debris was withdrawn. According to the authors, "needle aspiration alone was therapeutic in eight patients."[auntminnie.com]
  • These are withdrawn as the wound granulates and fills in internally. Figs. 262, 265, and 268 in The Breastfeeding Atlas, 4th edition show various types of drains and wicks.[breastfeedingmaterials.com]
Breast Mass
  • BACKGROUND: Clinical, radiologic and pathologic evaluation of a breast mass during pregnancy and lactation often presents a challenge.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract The physiological changes of the breast during pregnancy and lactation make the clinical, radiological and pathological evaluation of a breast mass challenging.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CASE: A 3-year-old prepubertal girl presented with a right-sided breast mass and was found to have a 4.4-cm hypoechoic cyst on ultrasound imaging with otherwise normal endocrine studies including prolactin levels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Large Breast
  • I saw my OB today for a large breast lump that used to be a clogged duct but has not gone away and grown in size. She didn't know much but thinks it's a galactocele and referred me for an ultrasound and consult with the breast surgeon.[forums.llli.org]

Confusion
  • The differential diagnosis includes other breast lesions with acellular amorphous components that may be confused with crystallizing galactocele in FNA biopsy specimens.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Mammographic and ultrasound findings may be confusing to the radiologist who is trying to investigate a cyst or mass in the breast. Doppler & Histological Analysis On color Doppler investigation, lack of blood flow is evident.[news-medical.net]

Workup

Suppression
  • Hormonal suppression of lactation and removal of the implants may be indicated in these patients. Consideration should be also given to the use of systemic antibiotics directed toward skin pathogens.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Hyperprolactinemia
  • A case is presented of a unilateral galactocele associated with transient hyperprolactinemia after augmentation mammoplasty.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Foam Cell
  • Cytologically, aspirates are generally noted to contain occasional foam cells and benign epithelium displaying lactational change with an abundant background of lipid micelles and proteinaceous material.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Her galactocele resolved adequately with this treatment. Surgeons performing breast augmentation should be aware of the clinical presentation as well as the treatment options for this entity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Relevant investigations are discussed and clear advice is given for the most effective treatment strategies in each condition, including dealing with treatment failures and recurring problems.[books.google.ro]
  • Because of its extreme rarity, there are some difficulties in differential diagnosis and treatment options of galactocele in male infants.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Treatment and prognosis They are benign lesions and spontaneous resolution occurs in a vast majority of cases. A small percentage have a residual collection that may mimic a fibroadenoma or complex cyst.[radiopaedia.org]
  • Treatment and Prognosis Galactoceles usually resolve quickly on their own in most cases, as the hormonal changes linked to lactation settle down. Very few patients have residual masses which may be mistaken for a carcinoma or a fibroadenoma.[news-medical.net]

Etiology

  • There are several hypotheses regarding etiology of the lesion, but it is likely to be multifactorial. Because of its extreme rarity, there are some difficulties in differential diagnosis and treatment options of galactocele in male infants.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION: The etiology of galactoceles in nonlactating women is poorly understood. Traditionally, treatment of these benign cysts in male children has been surgical excision.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Because no other etiology could be found in the young patient for the mammary galactocele, the prolactine excess is the most probable cause.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A number of case reports have been published in the literature; however, the etiology remains unclear. A case is presented of a unilateral galactocele associated with transient hyperprolactinemia after augmentation mammoplasty.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
