PURPOSE: To evaluate the relationship between the hormonal receptor status and the mammographic finding in breast cancer, thus to disclose whether the mammorgraphic findings would be the prognostic predictor or not. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifty breast cancer patients with hormonal receptor assay were included in this study. Hormonal status and mammographic findings were evaluated to disclose the relationship between the two variables. RESULTS: Among 26 positive estrogen receptor(ER) patients, 23 cases showed spioulations, 4 cases with increased parenchymal densities, 15 cases with calcifications, and 18 with mass-like lesions. Among 25 positive progesterone receptor(PR) patients, 22 cases showed spiculations, 6 with increased parenchymal densities, 12 with calcifications, 17 with mass-like lesions. Among 24 negative ER patients, 10 showed spiculations, 9 increased parenchymal densities, 12 calcifications, and 13 mass lesions. Among 25 negative PR patients, 17 showed spiculations, 8 increased parenchymal densities, 15 calcifications, and 13 mass lesions. CONCLUSION: Spiculation in mammography could related to the high incidence of positive estrogen receptor.
