  1. 1. BREAST CANCERBREAST CANCER March. 22. 2015March. 22. 2015
  2. 2. Breast Carcinoma Statistics • One in eight women will get breast cancer, • one third of women with breast cancer will die of the disease.
  3. 3. Risk Factors for Breast Cancer  Estrogen, Long & Strong exposure. (F/M ratio = 100/1) • Geography • Family historty; (1st degree, early age, bilat)/ 2 folds • Age (Peak; 60 – 70y) • Menstrual history & Reproductive history. - (Early menarch & late Menopause) - Pregnancy - (Nilliparous, Late 1st pregnancy) - (1st delivery at 18 y, / 1st delivery at 30 y) - Lactation, decrease risk - Oophorectomy (decrease the risk to 1/3) • Benign breast disease (Hx of previous breast pathology) - Fibrocystic disease +/- epith hyperplasia +/- atypia. - CIS - 0X, 2X, 5X, 10X
  4. 4. Risk Factors for Breast Cancer • Estrogen (exogenous), increase risk to 2.5 folds  In 2002 Estrogen declared as carcinogen by National Toxicology Program. • Oral contraceptive • Radiation Exposure • Carcinoma of the contralateral breast or endometrium • Obesity • High fat diet • Alcohol • Smoking • Environmental Toxins • Breast augmentation. • ABORTIONS?
  5. 5. Causes of Breast Cancer • Genetic • Environmental • Hormonal
  6. 6. Breast Cancer Pathology Ductal Ca. (85 – 93%) Lobular Ca. (7 – 15%) In Situ Carcinomas (CIS) (15 ) Invasive Carcinomas (85%) Special Subtypes (> 5%)
  7. 7. Ductal Carcinoma in Situ • Clinical: – DCIS usually does not present as a palpable mass, if it does it is usually high grade and a large lesion • Mammogram: – The most common method of detection is by identifying calcifications • MRI • FNA • Biopsy
  8. 8. Mammography showing a normal breast (left) and a cancerous breast (right).
  9. 9. Stellate lesion Calcifications Mammogrm: -Calcification - fibrous parenchyma Mammogrm: -1% false positive -20% false negative -Calcification, positive -50 - 60% in ca. -20% in benign
  10. 10. DCIS is confined to within the ductal system
  11. 11. Linear and branching calcifications
  12. 12. Architectural Patterns of DCIS • Comedo (high grade) – Grade 3 nuclei and necrosis – Often has associated microcalcifications • Solid (Low grade) – Carcinoma fills and distends the ducts • Micropapillary (Low grade) – Papillary structures that extend into the lumen of the duct • Cribriform (Low grade) – Forms a rigid “cartwheel” pattern
  13. 13. The adult, resting Breast connective tissue adipose well developed ducts connective tissue scanty secretory units
  14. 14. Cribriforming DCIS Secondary lumina
  15. 15. Micropapillary DCIS Papillae
  16. 16. DCIS, “Comedoca”, microcalcifications
  17. 17. Pathobiologic Events Associated with DCIS
  18. 18. DCIS: actin Stain of Myoepithelium
  19. 19. Natural History • 5 Year survival = 100% < 50 or > 50 year • If untreated ; – 28% developed invasive cancer – 10 fold increase in RR to controls
  20. 20. Axillary lymph nodes • Axillary LN involvement is <1% • Axillary LN dissection is not recommended • Sentinel lymph node biopsy? – Not recommended. – Consider: extensive high grade DCIS or palpable mass (increased chance of invasive disease being found)
  21. 21. • Mammography is the standard for detection of DCIS. • MRI could help especially in high-grade DCIS
  22. 22. Burstein H et al. N Engl J Med 2004;350:1430-1441 The Risk of Ipsilateral or Contralateral Breast Tumor for Patients with DCIS Treated with Excision Alone; Excision and Radiotherapy; Excision, Radiotherapy, and Tamoxifen; or Excision, Radiotherapy, and Placebo
  23. 23. Lobular Carcinoma in Situ (LCIS) • Multicentric , Bilateral • Proliferation of neoplastic population of cells within the TDLU • may extend into adjacent ducts.
  24. 24. Lobular carcinoma in situ
  25. 25. Invasive (Infiltrating) Breast Carcinoma  Main histological types; • Invasive ductal ca.(85%) • Invasive lobular ca. (7 – 15%) • Medullary ca. (2%) • Mucoid ca. (2%) • Tubular ca. (2%)
  26. 26. Invasive (Infiltrating) ductal carcinoma • The most common (> 85%). – Mass – +/- skin dimpling, nipple retraction • Mammogram; • MRI • FNA. • Biopsy Correlate with breast parenchyma at each quadrant
  27. 27. Invas ive Duct Ca
  28. 28. Stellate lesion Calcifications Mammogrm: -Calcification - fibrous parenchyma Mammogrm: -1% false positive -20% false negative -Calcification, positive -50 - 60% in ca. -20% in benign
  29. 29. Infiltrating Ductal Ca. • Gross: – Firm, gritty, stellate • Micro: – Grading depends on: 1) degree of tubule formation 2) nuclear grade 3) mitotic rate – Fibrosis (desmoplasia) – +/- calcifications
  30. 30. Infiltrating Lobular Carcinoma • 2nd most common invasive breast cancer. • +/- mass • L/M; - linear profiles of malignant cells “INDIAN” FILE - low nuclear grade, - minimal mitosis. - Dense fibrosis • multifocal & bilateral • Same prognosis as IDC, if matched for stage • ER+/ PR + • HER2 Neg.
  31. 31. Uncommon types of Invasive Carcinoma of the Breast • Mucinous (Colloid) Ca. – Older women – Malignant cells floating in pools of mucin – Better prognosis than invasive ductal or lobular • Tubular Carcinoma – Younger women – Excellent prognosis • Medullary carcinoma. – lots of lymphocytes) – Is better in behavior
  32. 32. Inflammatory Carcinoma • Invasive carcinoma involving superficial dermal lymphatic spaces • Poor prognosis • so called “inflammatory changes” - Erythema and induration of the skin, – Peau d’orange- of involved skin caused by lymphatic involvement and obstruction
  33. 33. Inflammatory carcinoma: dermal lymphatic spaces containing tumor cells
  34. 34. Paget’s Disease • Invasion of the SKIN of the nipple or areola by malignant cells. • Associated with an underlying cancer: either IN SITU OR INVASIVE carcinoma • Clinically-erythema, scaling, ulceration
  35. 35. Paget’s Disease of the Nipple Intra-epidermal adenocarcinoma cells

Editor's Notes

  • Microcalcifications, seen on mammograms, are often the result of necrotic intraductal crud which has calcified. Lets make this quite simple: NECROSIS in a hyperplastic duct is usually DCIS
  • Figure 1. Pathobiologic Events Associated with Ductal Carcinoma in Situ. The molecular, cellular, and pathological processes that occur in the transformation from healthy tissue to preinvasive lesions, such as ductal carcinoma in situ, to breast cancer are shown. The majority of the changes that give rise to cancer, including the accumulation of genetic changes, oncogene expression, and the loss of normal cell-cycle regulation, appear to have occurred by the time ductal carcinoma in situ is present. Most of the clinical features of a subsequent invasive breast cancer are already determined at this stage, although additional events, including tissue invasion and changes in the surrounding stroma, characterize the invasive tumor.
  • Figure 3. The Risk of Ipsilateral or Contralateral Breast Tumor after Surgical Excision among Patients with Ductal Carcinoma in Situ Who Were Treated with Excision Alone; Excision and Radiotherapy; Excision, Radiotherapy, and Tamoxifen; or Excision, Radiotherapy, and Placebo. The overall risk, the risk of invasive cancer, and the risk of noninvasive cancer are shown. Data are from combined analyses of the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project B-17 and B-24 trials.
  • A whole lobule filled with monotono0us cells of the same type can be called LCIS, or lobular carcinoma in situ. Note the COMPLETE LACK of atypia and necrosis, but it’s still CA-in-situ because this is a LOBULE!
  • The tumor cells are INSIDE the skin dermal lymphatic spaces.
  • Breast Cancer: TNM Stage Grouping
    The current breast cancer staging system is the 5th edition of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) system, sponsored jointly by the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute, the College of American Pathologists, and the American Colleges of Physicians, Radiology, and Surgeons. The AJCC system is a clinical and pathologic staging system based on the TNM system. T refers to tumor, N to nodes, and M to metastasis.
  • Tumor definitions
    This slide further delineates the breakdown in staging of the primary tumor.
  • Breast Cancer: Commonly Assessed Prognostic Factors
    A prognostic factor is defined as a biologic or clinical measurement associated with disease-free or overall survival in the absence of adjuvant systemic therapy. The most useful prognostic factor is the number of positive axillary lymph nodes based on a level I/II (or higher) axillary dissection and detailed histologic evaluation. Tumor size correlates with the number of involved nodes, but has independent prognostic significance.
  • Breast Cancer: 5-year Survival as Function of the Number of Positive Axillary Lymph Nodes
    As the number of involved lymph nodes increases, 5-year survival rates decrease.
  • Note that no matter how big a male’s breasts may get, they should never for m lobules, but just end as blunt ducts.
