Treatment of breast granular cell tumors Wide local excision tends to be the way that granular cell breast tumors are treated, whether they are malignant or not. Granular eosinophilic cytoplasm is abundant, and cells usually have distinct borders. Histological features of granular cell breast tumors which are more suggestive of malignancy include a larger size tumor greater than 5cmcellular and nuclear pleomorphism, increased mitotic activity, prominent nucleoli, and the presence of necrosis. Microscopic and histological aspects of breast granular cell tumors Histological analysis of granular cell breast tumors typically reveals sheets and nests of polygonal cells.

Granular cell breast tumor may occur in both sexes Granular cell breast tumors are generally 3cm or smaller.
Granular Cell Tumor of the breast
They have a tendency to recur so margins must be wide and completely free of tumor cells. Histological analysis of granular cell breast tumors typically reveals sheets and nests of polygonal cells. Metastasis rate is quite high for granular cell breast cancer Because there is a tendency for local recurrence and the remote possibility of distant metastasisfollow-up is a crucial aspect of treatment and management. Wide local excision tends to be the way that granular cell breast tumors are treated, whether they are malignant or not. Diagnostic imaging of breast granular cell tumors tends to be suspicious of breast tumors Breast cancer screening mammograms have the advantage of being highly sensitive showing a suspicious density of mass but not very specific giving a clear indication of what the mass or density actually is. Granular Cell Tumor of the breast A granular cell tumor, sometimes also called breast granular cell myoblastomais an uncommon neoplastic cell growth than originates in the Schwann cells of the peripheral nervous system.
