Developmental anomalies of the breast in the pediatric population
Pediatric breast conditions, which rarely require biopsy or excision and where follow-up with ultrasound is sufficient, are usually temporary. To understand childhood's physiological and pathological conditions, it is necessary to know the stages of intrauterine development, as in every organ. In neonatal and subsequent childhood periods, ultrasound is sufficient as a radiological examination after history and physical examination. Malign masses are sporadic, and benign masses are rarely encountered. Parental anxiety is an essential factor affecting patient management from the first admission to the final follow-up examination. For this reason, practitioners need to know information that reassures patients and parents with an appropriate methodology in developmental breast diseases.
