Uncertain or involved margins should be re-excised. Currently, hormone therapy has no established role but chemoprevention may prove to have a role in the future. INVASIVE BREAST CANCER Invasive breast carcinoma is the most common malignancy to affect women worldwide; the incidence in western countries is approximately 2% by age 50 years and 10% over a lifetime. Although many factors are associated with increased risk, the most clinically relevant factors are increasing age, carriage of a known predisposing genetic mutation, a family history with no proven mutation, atypical hyperplasia (discussed above) and prior exposure to radiation.

Lesions that do not exhibit all the characteristics of a simple cyst require further workup, with aspiration and core biopsy, if solid. Filling defects may be seen within a cyst. Papillomas frequently have this appearance (Figure 5-12). However larger multi-lobulated filling defects within cysts can be due to malignancy, particularly papillary carcinoma. Filling defects seen in recently aspirated cysts may be due to blood clot. Mucinous carcinomas can occasionally mimic complex cysts, due to their high water content.

The epithelium may ‘telescope’ from the duct wall during the sampling procedure and appear prominent and may be seen in clumped islands. As a rule, great care should be taken in the diagnosis of an atypical epithelial proliferation in a fibroepithelial lesion in core biopsy. 3-8); if there is associated lobular neoplasia or apocrine change, the mimicry can be marked. However, immunohistochemical assessment with smooth muscle myosin or smooth muscle actin will show the myoepithelial layer and can be extremely valuable in cases of concern.
