Objective: The objective of the study is to study the sonographic and strain elastographic features of galactocele in patients presenting in our hospital. Materials and Methods: This is a prospective observational study of all patients visiting our hospital with breast problems. This study was conducted at AVBRH hospital, Sawangi, Wardha, from March 2016 to July 2018. Most patients visiting the hospital with a clinical diagnosis of galactocele included in the study. Results: A total of 15 patients were included in the study. Sixty percent of patients belonged to the third decade of life (age between 21 and 30 years) followed by 20% from the fourth decade (age between 31 and 40 years). In our study, pregnancy and lactational period related galactoceles were more common than galactocele not related to pregnancy and lactation. Most galactoceles showed features of benign lesion on sonography. Conclusion: Galactoceles commonly appear on ultrasound as cystic or multicystic lesions with posterior acoustic enhancement. Blue-green-red appearance is seen in all cases on strain elastography.
