[Preoperative breast imaging review: Interests and limits of specialized validation in oncology]. Bull Cancer. 2020 Feb 27;: Authors: Flory V, Lévy G, Viotti J, Schiappa R, Elkind L, Ghez C, Pellegrin A, Occelli A, Dejode M, Delpech Y, Fouché Y, Figl A, Machiavello JC, Haudebourg J, Peyrottes I, Chapellier C, Barranger E Abstract OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the impact of systematic radiological review by breast specialist radiologist of malignant breast lesion imaging on the therapeutic management of patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data collection was performed for patients with histopathologically proved breast cancer or suspicious breast lesion on imaging realized out of our institution. Patients underwent systematic mammary and axillary ultrasound, imaging review and if necessary complementary mammographic images. We analyzed the number of additional breast biopsies and axillary lymph node fine needle aspiration (FNA) with their histopathological results. We assessed their impact by comparing the final surgical treatment to the one planned before review. RESULTS: Two hundred and seventeen patients were included, with a total of 230 BIRADS 0, 4, 5 or 6 breast lesions. Seventy-six additional breast core biopsies were realized, leading to diagnose 43 additional BIRADS 6 lesions (24 infiltrative carcinomas, 9 DCIS and 10 atypical lesions) in 30 patients (13.82%). Thirty-five additional lymph node FNA were realized with 12 metastatic n...

ah Hosseini The majority of cancer evolution studies involve individual-based approaches that neglect the population dynamics necessary to build a global picture of cancer evolution for each cancer type. Here, we conducted a population-based study in breast cancer to understand the timing of malignancy evolution and its correlation to the genetic evolution of pathological stages. In an omics integrative approach, we integrated gene expression and genomic aberration data for pre-invasive (ductal carcinoma in situ; DCIS, early-stage) and post-invasive (invasive ductal carcinoma; IDC, late-stage) samples and investigated ...

FRIDAY, May 29, 2020 -- Women with cancerous cells in their milk ducts -- also known as DCIS -- are at a high risk for developing fatal breast cancer, British researchers report. DCIS is short for ductal carcinoma in situ, an early form of breast...

In conclusion, preoperatively diagnosed non-mass-type DCIS represented an underestimation in approximately 27% of cases. In particular, the presence of a clinically abnormal palpation increases the chance of upstaging to invasive cancer. PMID: 32454975 [PubMed]

Conclusion: We improved the prediction performance of DCIS upstaging by embedding two related pathology classes in different training phases. Significance: The three new strategies of embedding related class data all outperformed the baseline model, thus demonstrating not only feature similarities among these different classes, but also the potential for improving classification by using other related classes.

CONCLUSION: These findings support the use of prophylactic NSM in high-risk patients. The nipples could be preserved in the majority of patients, postoperative complication rates were low, and, with limited follow-up, there were no new breast cancers.
