Epidermoid cyst of the breast is very rare and benign lesion. We report three cases in females who presented with breast lump. It often mimics benign/malignant breast tumors on clinical and radiological examination. Infection and malignant transformation are the potential complications. Fine-needle aspiration cytology is essential for accurate preoperative diagnosis. Excision of epidermoid cyst in the breast is recommended to avoid potential complications.
