To the Editor.—
I would agree with everything in the recent MEDICOLEGAL ROUNDS article concerning treatment of mammary lumps (233:559,1975) except the opinion that a lump the size of a pullet egg is a small breast lump. A pullet egg might be small when compared to Grade A Large, but it certainly is of substantial size when found in a breast. Also, why in this day and age do we continue to describe all lumps in comparison with some food item instead of giving an accurate estimate of size?
