ConclusionsPatients with ADH on CNB can be stratified into a low oncological cohort who have a 2% risk of being upstaged to carcinoma. In the future, these select patients may be counselled and potentially offered observation as an alternative to surgery.

Background: Magseed is a new alternative method of localising non-palpable breast lesions that has addressed many of the limitations of wire guided localisation. It is a nonradioactive inducible magnetic seed that can be visualised on mammography and ultrasound. The Sentimag ® probe is used for Intraoperative localisation of the seed. The aim of this study is to evaluate this new technique introduced to our department over the last two years.

"The unusual suspects"-Mammographic, sonographic, and histopathologic appearance of atypical breast masses. Clin Imaging. 2020 Oct;66:111-120 Authors: Naeem M, Zulfiqar M, Ballard DH, Billadello L, Cao G, Winter A, Lowdermilk M Abstract Breast malignancy is the second most common cause of cancer death in women. However, less common breast masses can mimic carcinoma and can pose diagnostic challenges. This case-based review describes a spectrum of rare breast neoplastic and non-neoplastic masses ranging from malignant to benign entities. Malignant masses in this review include adenoid cystic ...

CONCLUSION: Our study found that Korean females aged 40-49 years with US-detected breast cancer showed better DFS than those with mammography-detected breast cancer. However, there were no statistically significant differences in OS. PMID: 32901456 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: The SWV ratio can improve the sensitivity without sacrificing diagnostic specificity in the process of breast cancer diagnostic, provide a better diagnostic performance, and avoid unnecessary biopsy or surgery. PMID: 32924988 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Over 300,000 women in the US are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, with an estimated 12,000 of those diagnosed expected to be under the age of 40. Early detection is pivotal to ensuring a high likelihood of survival, which is why...

Authors: Linhares S, Alrammah T, Alghamdi HA, Möller MG Abstract Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) represents only 1% to 5% of all breast malignancies and is an extremely aggressive subtype. At time of diagnosis, up to 85% of patients will present with regional nodal metastases and up to 30 % will have metastasis to distant organs. There is limited medical literature describing treatment guidelines for IBC during gestation. The best diagnostic tools are core needle and full-thickness skin punch biopsies to assess presence of dermal lymphatic invasion. Breast Ultrasound is preferred to mammogram, but mammography...

Authors: Gilmore R, Prasath V, Habibi M Abstract Paget's disease of the breast (PDB) is a rare breast carcinoma believed to arise from an underlying in situ or invasive ductal cancer that migrates through the epidermis causing characteristic skin changes including scaling, redness, and itching of the nipple, areola, and sometimes the surrounding skin. Although Paget's may mimic benign conditions such as contact or allergic eczema and mastitis, it should remain a strong consideration in the differential diagnosis , especially in peripartum women for whom benign conditions such as bacterial mastitis from breastfeedin...
