Background: Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) identified by screening mammography accounts for 20% of breast cancer diagnoses, and microinvasion (DCIS-M) is found in 5% –10%. There are no defined treatment guidelines for palpable DCIS or DCIS-M. The role of screening mammography is now being questioned across the world and in the developing world with no national screening programs, women with DCIS present with a palpable lump in the breast. We conducted a retros pective audit of women with DCIS treated at our institution to classify palpable DCIS and DCIS-M as distinct clinical stages and emphasize the need for a chan...

Background: Low-risk ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) lesions carry a risk of progressing to invasive breast cancer (iBC). Therefore, women with DCIS undergo surgery ±radiotherapy which will yield many of them no/limited survival benefit whilst the associated side-effects can significantly impact their quality of life (QoL). The safety of active surveillance (AS) via yearly mammographic screening for low-risk DCIS is now being investigated. AS minimizes the phy sical burden associated with the standard treatments, but foregoing treatment could cause increased worry about progression of the DCIS lesion to iBC.

CONCLUSION: In our cohort, expectant management of FEA alone appears to be a safe option as our upstaging rate to DCIS or invasive cancer for FEA diagnosed on core biopsy was only 4%. Our study suggests that close follow-up is a safe and feasible option for pure FEA without a radiographic discordance found on core biopsy. PMID: 32816560 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The aim of this study was to analyze kinetic and morphologic features using dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) with computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) to predict occult invasive components in cases of biopsy-proven ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). We enrolled 138 patients with 141 breasts who underwent preoperative breast MRI and were diagnosed with DCIS via ultrasonography (US)-guided core needle biopsy performed at our institution during January 2009 to December 2012. Their clinical, mammographic, ultrasonographic, MRI, and final histologic findings were retrospectively reviewed. Their mammograph...

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 ...

CONCLUSIONS: We demonstrated a statistically significant relationship between HIV status, the presence of multifocal breast cancer, and mammographically detected grouped and fine pleomorphic microcalcifications. A statistically significant relationship between HGDCIS and HIV status, and the presence of grouped and fine pleomorphic microcalcifications in HIV-positive patients with biopsies confirming HGDCIS, was demonstrated. Our study also showed that there is a relationship between age of presentation and HIV status. PMID: 32657681 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
