    Abstract

    A granular cell tumor of breast is a rare and usually benign tumor originating from Schwann cells. The mammographic and sonographic appearances of a granular cell tumor pose a diagnostic dilemma because of its similarity to breast malignancy. We describe 2 cases of breast granular cell tumors in male patients, which were confirmed after surgical excision and histologic examination.
