Book Description :

This comprehensive volume reviews current topics and controversies in diagnostic breast pathology, and addresses frequently encountered diagnostic problems using a question and answer format and case presentations. Emphasis is placed on the diagnostic approach as it relates to morphology, clinical and radiographic correlation, differential diagnosis, and ancillary testing including immunohistochemical and molecular analyses. Answers are provided and serve as a practical, evidence-based, and problem solving guide to diagnostic issues having significant impacts on clinical management. Common but diagnostically challenging entities such as papillary lesions and fibroepithelial lesions are discussed in detail, as well as special types of breast cancer including solid papillary carcinoma, lobular lesions and its variants. Uncommon breast lesions such as mesenchymal, lymphoid, and metastatic lesions are also covered. Chapters discuss genetic alterations and molecular abnormalities in breast cancer, and commonly encountered interpretation dilemmas on immunohistochemistry in breast cancer and metastatic cancer to the breast with a focus on prognostic and predictive tumor biomarkers.

Book Description :

A practical guide for the diagnostic surgical pathologist, this new edition of Biopsy Interpretation of the Breast presents the diverse spectrum of pathologic alterations that occur in the breast in a manner analogous to that in which they are encountered in daily practice. Lesions are grouped together according to their histologic patterns rather than by the traditional benign-malignant categorization in order to simulate the way pathologists face these lesions as they examine microscopic slides on a daily basis. The role of adjunctive studies in solving diagnostic problems in breast pathology is emphasized where appropriate. In addition, the clinical significance and impact on patient management of the various diagnoses are discussed and key clinical and management points highlighted.

Book Description :

This book provides a concise, step-by-step guide to accurate microscopic diagnosis for clinicians who deal with patients with breast lesions. The emphasis is on a practical approach to dealing with breast biopsies and reaching a diagnosis. It outlines the procedures used for the microscopic diagnosis of various breast lesions and the significance of the nomenclature and terms used in pathology reports, including those dealing with uncommon or rare lesions. Ample illustrations of the lesions discussed are included, particularly those dealing with uncommon and border-line lesions. There is a special emphasis on breast cancer and on the fact that not all breast cancers are the same. The different ways by which breast cancers are classified are discussed including recent classifications which lead to personalized therapy. The book is aimed at pathologists of all grades who deal with breast biopsies including those in training. It would be also useful for practicing and trainee surgeons and oncologists as well as other health professionals dealing with patients with breast diseases and scientists carrying out research on breast problems.

Book Description :

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women in the United States. For the pathologist, almost any breast lesion may produce diagnostic difficulty, especially due to frequently small samples (core biopsy specimens) and a variety of mimics and variants seen in specific types of lesions. Additionally, the difficulty of breast lesion diagnosis has risen dramatically in recent years due to the increased emphasis on stratifying patients for appropriate therapy on an individual basis; the wider range of both local and systemic therapeutic options, and the potential for earlier diagnosis through increased mammographic breast screening leading to a higher likelihood of a favorable outcome. Difficult Diagnoses in Breast Pathology provides a highly visual presentation of the major problems and questions that a pathologist is likely to encounter in the evaluation of common and uncommon breast diseases. Coverage includes needle core biopsy interpretation, diagnosis of precursor lesions, early stage disease, and recognition of neoplastic mimics and other misleading variants. In addition, this book emphasizes particularly difficult areas including the use of newer immunohistochemical markers. Throughout, the emphasis is on an easily accessible presentation with tables and lists of key points summarizing major findings and numerous high-quality images supporting the text. Difficult Diagnoses in Breast Pathology will be a valuable reference for every pathologist who deals with the diagnosis of breast diseases. Difficult Diagnoses in Breast Pathology Features: Each chapter authored by recognized expert in the area Hundreds of high-quality images Tables and key points in each chapter summarize the most important findings Coverage based on addressing in detail the real-world diagnostic problems the pathologist will face in daily practice

Book Description :

Fine needle aspiration is one of the pronciple diagnostic tools used in taking cells from possible malignant lesions in the breast. These cells are then subjected to cytological analysis and, depending on the result, the surgical/radiotherapy treatments can be planned. The technique can present problems in three regards. Firstly, in taking a sample from the right place; secondly, in making sure enough cells have been taken for diagnosis and thirdly, in making the correct diagnosis. This book illustrates the radiological, cytological and histological appearance of the various lesions encountered in diseases of the breast. It will be a practical guide to the interpretation and diagnosis of cytopathological specimens of the breast. A practical manual illustrating the best methods of achieving adequate diagnostic samples. A clear guide to making and reporting the differential diagnosis of breast lesions Written by two of the leading figures in the European Breast Screening Programme, the book sets out standards of best practice Clearly illustrates both the techniques of FNA and their subsequent diagnostic findings, enabling the book to be used alongside the microscope.
