Benign breast diseases are still considered the largest comprise of breast complaints in developing countries. They range from developmental abnormalities, inflammatory lesions, fibrocystic changes, stromal lesions, and neoplasms. Mammary Myofibroblastoma (MMF) is a rare well defined benign stromal tumor that found in both males and females. The rarity of the tumor along with its wide morphological variation challenges the accurate identification of the final histopathological diagnosis. We present a case of a 70 years old female with 10 years history of an enlarging painless breast mass. Breast ultrasound, Mammography and MRI have demonstrated its benign nature of the large breast mass, yet the histopathology diagnosis was challenging based on the Core biopsy. It was reported as MMF. Complete surgical excision was performed with ease leaving the normal compressed breast tissue.
