We report a rare case of a breast lump in an 81-year-old woman. Initial investigations were inconclusive and excision biopsy of the lump was done. Histologically the mass proved to be a ganglion cyst. It is the only reported case of ectopic ganglion cyst in the literature that presented as a breast lump.
