Schwannoma is a benign tumor originating from Schwann cells, which envelop peripheral nerves. Typically solitary, this tumor develops slowly over time. Schwannoma symptoms vary based on tumor size and location but may encompass pain, tingling, muscle weakness, or sensory loss. Diagnosis is typically confirmed through medical imaging, such as MRI or CT scans. Treatment often involves surgical intervention for tumor removal, although periodic monitoring may be recommended in some instances. We present a case of a 26-year-old patient diagnosed with a breast schwannoma during an evaluation for a breast nodule.
