Cavernous hemangioma of the breast is rare, and if manifested as a focal palpable mass of the breast, it should be differentiated from angiosarcoma and other breast malignancies. We described a case of a 54-year-old woman with apalpable breast mass confirmed as a cavernous hemangioma. This lesion presented as a hyperdense mass on mammography and a hypoechoicmass with internal calcifications on ultrasonography. The calcifications exhibited a round shape and central lucency, making themphleboliths. Phlebolithsisarecharacteristic findingsin soft tissue hemangiomas, and finding them during a mammography helps to identify hemangiomas.
