Addressing the problem of overtreatment in breast cancer.

Expert Rev Anticancer Ther 2022 May 19:1-14. Epub 2022 May 19.

Breast Service, Department of Surgery, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York.

Introduction: As breast cancer treatment options have multiplied and biologic diversity within breast cancer has been recognized, the use of the same treatment strategies for patients with early-stage and favorable disease, and for those with biologically aggressive disease, has been questioned. In addition, as patient-reported outcome measures have called attention to the morbidity of many common treatments, and as the cost of breast cancer care has continued to increase, reduction in the overtreatment of breast cancer has assumed increasing importance.

Areas Covered: Here we review selected aspects of surgery, radiation oncology, and medical oncology for which scientific evidence supports de-escalation for invasive carcinoma and ductal carcinoma in situ, and assess strategies to address overtreatment. Read More

A peculiar case of Paget's disease of the breast.

Ann Ital Chir 2022 May 5;11. Epub 2022 May 5.

Mammary Paget's disease is a disorder of the nipple-areola complex of the breast that, while rare, is often associated with an underlying carcinoma. The typical aspect is usually an eczematoid change of the nipple or a red and ulcerative nipple's lesion or erythematous and crusted lesion, with or without mass-like lesion and infiltration and inversion of the nipple. It was described at first by Sir James Paget in 1874, [1] who classified the disease in mammary and extramammary type. Read More

Breast cancers originating from the terminal ductal lobular units: In situ and invasive acinar adenocarcinoma of the breast, AAB.

Eur J Radiol 2022 May 10;152:110323. Epub 2022 May 10.

Institute of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine, College of Public Health, National Taiwan University, 17 Hsuchow Road, Taipei, Taiwan 100.

Purpose: To use mammographic tumour features (imaging biomarkers) to identify and investigate breast cancers originating from the terminal ductal lobular units (TDLUs) of the breast in order to overcome the confusion arising from the current histopathology terminology, which calls cancers arising from the TDLUs either "ductal" or "lobular".

Method: Prospectively collected data from a randomized controlled mammography screening trial with more than four decades of follow up, and data from the subsequent population-based service screening program in Dalarna County, Sweden, provided the database necessary for studying nonpalpable, primarily screen-detected breast cancer cases in their earliest detectable phases. Large format thick (subgross) and thin section histopathologic images of breast cancers originating from the TDLUs were correlated with their mammographic tumour features (imaging biomarkers) and long-term patient outcome.
