    Background: There is currently debate as to whether all papillary lesions diagnosed on breast needle core biopsy (BNCB) require surgical excision. The development of large volume "mammotome" biopsy now permits nonoperative removal. Few studies have assessed the usefulness of this approach. Aim:...

    Excisional biopsy has been recommended for papillary lesions diagnosed on core needle biopsy (CNB) because a significant proportion of cases are upstaged to in situ/invasive cancer after surgical excision. The study goals were to identify patients at lowest risk of upstaging in whom excisional...

    The current recommendation for borderline breast lesions after core needle biopsy is for surgical excision due to a high rate of pathologic underestimation. With the use of vacuum-assisted core needle (VACN) biopsy devices, upgrade rates have improved, but still average 20 per cent. We routinely...

    The radial scar (RS) or complex sclerosing lesion (CSL) of the breast represents a management dilemma on diagnosis at breast core needle biopsy because of the risk of associated malignancy identified only upon surgical excision. To determine our experience, we retrospectively reviewed core...

    The clinical significance of isolated radial scars (RS) diagnosed on core needle biopsy (CNB) remains unclear. By determining the pathologic concordance rate, we sought to define the indications for surgical excision for RS diagnosed on CNB. Between January 1994 and December 2007, 38 RS were...

    Papillary lesions of the breast range from a spectrum of benign intraductal papillomas with and without atypia to papillary carcinoma. Distinction between benign and malignant lesions on core needle biopsy (CNB) is difficult without surgical excision. We examined if clinical findings in patients...

    Background The optimal course of clinical follow-up after a diagnosis of breast papillary lesion on a core needle biopsy (CNB) remains elusive. In particular, no reports in literature have addressed this question in African-American population. We describe our experience with breast papillary...
