ConclusionThe presence of breast cancer does not significantly increase the likelihood for upgrade at a separate site of ipsilateral concurrent ADH above contemporary reported upgrade rates of ADH alone (10 –30%). When considering breast conservation for breast cancer, omitting excision of the site of ADH can be considered when low-risk features are present.

ConclusionPatients with pure ALH with radiographic concordance have a low risk of pathologic upgrading on excisional biopsy. Potential predictors of upgrade rate warrant further analysis in a larger dataset.

CONCLUSION: One-year follow-up rather than 6-month follow-up may be suitable for BI-RADS 3 lesions on screening US found in screening centers. However, more caution is needed regarding similar findings in tertiary centers where 6-month follow-up may be more appropriate. PMID: 32691538 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Chiorean A, Pintican RM, Szep M, Feier D, Rogojan L, Fetica B, Dindelegan G, Vlad B, Duma M Abstract Ultrasound (US) is an attractive diagnostic approach to identify both common and uncommon nipple pathologies, such as duct ectasia, nipple abscess, nipple leiomyoma, nipple adenoma, fibroepithelial polyp, ductal carcinoma in situ (restricted to nipple), invasive carcinoma, and Paget's disease. US is the reliable first-line imaging technique to assess nipple pathologies. It is useful to identify and characterize nipple lesions. Additionally, we have presented the mammography and MRI outcomes correlated with ...

We present a rare case of Paget disease of the nipple without the typical characteristics, detected by simple nipple scraping technique. A 62-year-old woman presented with a small fissure on the left nipple with scant clear nippledischarge. There were no other changes to the nipple-areola complex. The mammography and ultrasound were unremarkable. However, nipplescraping provided the immediate cytological diagnosis of Paget disease. Breast MRI with core biopsy showed high grade ductal carcinoma in situwith suggestion of microinvasion, confirmed histologically after mastectomy. Nipple scraping is a simple and inexpensive tec...

AbstractIntroductionBreast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed female cancer. Diagnosis in younger women (under 35  years) is different to their older counterparts, and mammography is not considered as sensitive in this cohort. Consequentially, younger patients may present later with more advanced disease.MethodsThis is a retrospective analysis of a prospectively updated database containing consecutive patients who presented to the symptomatic breast unit of Galway University Hospital between 2009 and 2015. Patient clinicopathologic factors, clinical examination features, diagnostic radiological modalities and Bi-RA...

ConclusionAfter a percutaneous biopsy diagnosis of ADH, malignancy can be ruled out in most of the cases, if no suspicious enhancement is present in the biopsy area at DCE-MRI. Breast DCE-MRI may be used to avoid surgery in more than half of the patients with final benign diagnosis.Key Points• Breast DCE-MRI can safely rule out malignancy if no suspicious enhancement is present in the biopsy area after a percutaneous biopsy diagnosis of ADH.• All cases of upgrade to high-grade DCIS and invasive cancers can be identified at breast DCE-MRI after a percutaneous biopsy diagnosis of ADH.• Breast DCE-MRI may be us...
