Objective The purpose of this presentation is to show the sonographic findings of breast masses, which can occur in subcutaneous fat or in the cutaneous layer of the breast. Methods We reviewed the sonographic findings of superficial breast masses, including the epidermal inclusion cyst, steatocystoma multiplex, fat necrosis, accessory breast, Mondor disease, sparganosis, neurofibroma, tuberculosis, mastitis, and breast malignancy. Results Specific sonographic features of superficial breast masses have been illustrated. Conclusions Radiologists must be familiar with the sonographic findings of various diseases involving the superficial layer of the breast to avoid further patient workup.
