MAMMA CaDIGI0595 FIBROID TUMORFIBROID TUMORHere are some cases that I thought might be interesting from my Anatomical pathology Laboratory. The fiirst case was a dermatology case found in the body of young man 34 years old by coincident while doing an FNAB on his left lump in his neck. After pulling out his T-shirt,  I saw a feature of ‘itchy skin’ all over his chest. The lesion seemed to  look like blisters but not transparent or cystous on palpation. They look like scars or hard blisters, with very itchy and burning sensation according to the patient. I could not recognize what  disease or symptom was that. I need help from dermatologist colleague…

The second  case were the fibroid tumors of  a woman 42 years old with multiple lumps on her subserous womb. This case interesting for me, due to all the three tumors were almost the same in diameter and shape. In other words uniformity in diameters and shape.. Those were really true, if you look at the picture.

The third case was an uncommon location of a Malignant mammary cancer , which showed an ulcer far enough from the nipple, as if the ulcer was not belong to the mammary tissue. The patient was a woman of 46 years of age. Most malignant mammary cancer usually resides behind the nipple, around the areola mammae and the most popular sites is the area of the breast tissue  that we used to call Upper Lateral Quadrant (ULQ) of the breast.  You will understand more,  by watching  the picture.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little
    bit more than just your articles? I mean,
    what you say is important and everything. But think about if
    you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website could
    definitely be one of the very best in its niche.

    Great blog!

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but
    I had to tell someone!

    Hi Ofigennoe,

    Thanks for visiting and your input.

    I agree, the dermatology case might be allergic condition and water is one probability cause. But the question is : why only one specific site (the chest), shows this allergic effect ? Why not the whole body do react the same allergic reaction?

    Is it possible to be allergic to water?
