Phyllodes tumor - Definition


Definition


A phyllodes tumor is a type of breast tumor. In the majority of cases these tumors are rare and benign. They are often found in women over 40 years of age, and grow quickly, sometimes reaching a size of 20 or even 30 centimeters. These tumors do have a malignant potential, called phyllodes sarcoma, which is even rarer. By performing breast x-ray, called a mammogram, or an ultrasound, the nature of the tumor can be revealed. Treatment methods are primarily based on surgical ablation, whether the tumor is malignant or benign.
