Breast hamartoma is a rare benign tumor of the breast, and it is classified based on the variable tissue components. It is more common during the lactating period and premenopausal period. Bilateral breast hamartoma is rarely reported in the literature. It might create diagnostic difficulty based on fine-needle aspiration cytology and core needle biopsy. Radiological investigation sometimes might have overlaying findings with malignant disease. It is always better to undergo an excision biopsy for the confirmation of the diagnosis.
