BACKGROUND Primary mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the breast is a very unusual tumor. It is often misdiagnosed, masquerading under different diagnoses. The cytologic assessment is especially difficult when the lesion is high grade. One reported case was initially diagnosed by fine needle aspiration cytology. CASE A 69-year-old woman presented with a 6 x 4-cm tumor located in the upper outer quadrant of the right breast. The first cytologic diagnosis suggested ductal carcinoma with atypical… 

Breast mucoepidermoid carcinoma: a case report and review of literature.

TLDR
A 42-year-old Chinese woman presented with a lump in her right breast that was detected approximately three months prior and was diagnosed with a low-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma based on the clinical, histologic, and immuno-phenotypic characteristics.

Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma in a Breast Affected by Burn Scars: Comprehensive Literature Review and Case Report

TLDR
MEC of the breast is a rarely seen tumor, and this is the first report of MEC in a breast affected by burn scars.

Mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the breast

TLDR
Hormonal factors might have an impact on the biological behavior of tumors, but further studies are needed to draw conclusions.

Primary Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma of the Breast: A Rare Breast Entity

TLDR
Due to its rarity, the diagnostic and therapeutic approach of MEC in the breast is not welldocumented, causing challenges in daily practice, even at experienced Breast Centers.
