Trying to wrap my head around what can be felt and what can be seen on a contrast CT. A physical examination ruled out lipoma and gynecomastia as there is male breast involvement. At first blush nothing was found beneath the areola that was palpable. Palpable lumps extending from right axilla into right trunk, right breast, right pectoral.
Palpable masses are deep, vary in shape and feel appear to be multiplying and some are enlarging. When looking at the CT there are areas that look like lipoma but after a physical examination that was ruled out by the person performing the exam. Non-tender but can hurt the tissue around it when manipulated. Mobility varies.
Spontaneous appearance, 3-5 felt three weeks ago, 10+ two weeks ago, 30+ now. Varying in all sorts of shapes and sizes. There is also diastasis recti in the epigrastric region the patient was completely unaware of that does share some imaging characteristics.
If you're interested or can point in the right direction I can share the imaging privately, thank you.
