    • Knowledge is a burden, If it robs you of innocence, If it makes you feel you are special, If it gives you an idea you are wise, If it is not integrated into life, If it does not bring you joy, If it does not set you free. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, humanitarian and founder of the Art of Living Foundation, Bangalore, India. (quote from Clinical Pathology 2005;58:785; doi:10.1136/jcp.2005.030247)

    • Breast Carcinoma
      • Second common cause of cancer death in women. (next to lung)
      • 20% of all cancers in women
      • Commonest cause of death in young < 55y
      • In UK 1 in 10-12 woman, 1 in 8 in US
      • Much less incidence in Asia, japan.
      • Majority of cancers arise in the ducts.
      • Rare before age 30. (30-50 genetic, >50 sporadic)
    • Etiology of Breast Carcinoma:
      • Overexposure to oestrogens and underexposure to progesterone
      • No definite relationship to oral contraceptives
      • Some tumours contain hormone receptors and respond to hormone manipulation
      • No good evidence for viral involvement

      • Malignant cells within ducts, but no invasion.
      • Increasing incidence of DCIS due to mammographic screening
      • Lack the capacity to invade beyond basement membrane
      • No distant metastasis, however, can spread through ductal system to produce extensive lesions involving an entire sector of a breast.
      • DCIS types: comedocarcinoma, solid cribriform, papillary, and micropapilary. Most commonly mixed pattern.

    • Ca Breast – fat removal
    • ADH is recognised by its histologic resemblance to ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), including a monomorphic cell population, regular cell placement, and round lumina. However, the lesions are characteristically limited in extent, and the cells are not completely monomorphic in type or they fail to completely fill the ductal spaces. Atypical Ductal Hyperplasia

    • Medullary Carcinoma: Inflammation.
    • Inflammatory Carcinoma
    • Tumours shows tubules lined by minimally atypical cells within dense fibrotic stroma giving the tumour a hard consistency on palpitation. (difficult to distinguish from benign sclerosing lesions.). Typical Invasive Ductal Carcinoma / Duct Ca (NOS)
    • Lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) consists of small cells that have round or oval nuclei with small nucleoli that loosely adhere to one another. LCIS rarely distorts the underlying architecture, and the involved acini remain recognisable as lobules. Lobular Carcinoma in situ (LCIS)
    • The histologic hallmark of lobular carcinoma is the pattern of single infiltrating tumour cells, often only one cell in width (in the form of single file; often described as ‘ Indian files ’)) or in loose clusters or sheets. The cells have the same cytologic features as LCIS and lack cohesion, without the formation of tubules or papillae. Tumour cells are frequently arranged in concentric rings surrounding ducts (not illustrated here). Invasive Lobular Carcinoma

    • Estrogen receptor (ER) in nuclei
    • Immunoperoxidase stain: Neg 1+ 2+ 3+
    • Estrogen Receptor & Prognosis:
      • Estrogen receptor expression is proportional to differentiation of tumor
      • inversely proportional to prognosis and response to tamoxifen (receptor antagonist) therapy.
      • Demonstrated by Immunoperoxidase special stain.
    • HER2 (Human Epidermal growth factor Receptor 2)
      • The HER2 proto-oncogene encodes a cell surface receptor that is over expressed in approximately 25%-30% of breast cancers. (normally 2 copies).
      • HER2 positive breast cancers grow quickly and spread more than others.
      • Trastuzumab (Herceptin®) is the first monoclonal antibody that targets the extra cellular domain of the HER2 protein, and inhibits growth of breast cancer cells that over express this protein.
      • HER2 testing (Immunohistochemistry/FISH) results are critical to ensuring that patients who may benefit from the anti-HER2 antibody therapy.

    • Both lesions were described by Sir James Paget (1814-1899). There is no other relationship between these lesions. Paget's disease of the nipple & of bone The term medullary refers only to the soft consistency (resembling the medulla of the brain). There is no other relationship between these lesions. Medullary carcinoma of the breast & of the thyroid Radial scars and complex sclerosing lesions differ only in size: the latter are >10 mm diameter. Both mimic carcinomas radiologically and histologically, but they are benign non-neoplastic lesions. Radial scar & complex sclerosing lesion Ductal epithelial hyperplasia is a benign proliferation of duct epithelium, whereas ductal carcinoma in situ has undergone neoplastic transformation, although it is not yet invasive. These lesions can have morphological similarities. A proportion share genetic alterations. Ductal epithelial hyperplasia & ductalcarcinoma in situ both comprise neoplastic epithelial and fibrous tissue components. However, in phyllodes tumours the fibrous tissue component is more cellular and abundant, and the lesion has less well defined margins; borderline and malignant variants occur. Fibroadenoma & phyllodes tumour Fibroadenoma is a localized circumscribed benign neoplasm comprising epithelial cells and specialised fibrous tissue. Fibroadenosis is an obsolete name for fibrocystic change, a diffuse hyperplastic lesion. Fibroadenoma & Fibroadenosis Distinction and explanation Confusion
