Neuroendocrine carcinoma of the breast is a rare tumor subtype comprising less than 1% of breast cancers in the United States. Merkel cell features within this rare subtype are even rarer. We report a neuroendocrine breast carcinoma with Merkel cell features. The patient underwent breast conservation therapy and a sentinel lymph node biopsy. Unfortunately, the tumor was extremely aggressive and at 5 weeks postoperatively she presented with widely metastatic disease. Due to the aggressive nature of this tumor, we reviewed the literature and treatment options for this rare variant of a rare subtype...

Breast cancer patients receiving endocrine therapy with aromatase Inhibitors (AIs) often experience musculoskeletal and joint-related side effects. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of Vitamin B12 supplements on musculoskeletal symptoms such as pain and arthralgias induced by AIs and to correlate response with serum and inflammatory biomarkers. Upon receiving approval by the Institutional Review Board (IRB), the majority of the patients consented into the study were treated at the Texas Tech Breast Care Center...

The current standard of care for screen-detected breast cancers is surgical excision. Cryotherapy is a promising non- surgical alternative treatment for these cancers and is performed under local anesthesia as an outpatient, circumventing the risks that come with an operation. New research also shows promising results for the treatment of breast cancer when cryotherapy is combined with immune modulation as it may help prevent tumor recurrence. We herein report a case of breast cancer treated successfully with cryoablation...

In premenopausal women with hormone dependent breast cancers, ovarian suppression is an important part of treatment, and is often achieved with a bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (BSO). However, this procedure can lead to ovarian remnant syndrome (ORS), a rare condition where the adnexal tissue is not completely removed and can produce estrogen. We describe a case of ORS in a patient with estrogen receptor positive (ER+) breast cancer who had progression of disease after undergoing a BSO, despite optimal therapy...

The spread of systematic screening and the emergence of oncoplastic techniques allow more breast conservative treatment associating lumpectomy and external beam radiation therapy. In order to furthermore facilitate the patient's treatment, intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) has been developed. The oncological safety of this technique has been studied, and is considered acceptable. Many questions remain unsolved in regard of the toxicity of this procedure as well as the patient's selection criteria. In this study, we present the first results and complications rate of patients treated by IORT in a single French institution...

BACKGROUND: The impact of age on breast cancer risk model calculations at the population level has not been well documented. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of formal breast cancer risk assessment in 36 542 females ages 40-84 at a single institution from 02/2007 to 12/2009. Five-year and lifetime breast cancer risks were calculated using Gail, Tyrer-Cuzick version 6 (TC6), Tyrer-Cuzick version 7 (TC7), BRCAPRO, and Claus models. Risk of BRCA mutation was calculated using BRCAPRO, TC6, TC7, and Myriad...

Cosmetic outcome is an important quality of life-related end point following breast-conserving therapy (BCT). To advise on a gold standard, we compare cosmetic outcome evaluated by panel and an objective evaluation (BCCT.core software). Second, patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) are compared to cosmetic outcome evaluation by panel and BCCT.core. Sixty-eight breast cancer patients were included following BCT between 2007 and 2012. Two independent 6-member panels and two observers using the BCCT.core evaluated cosmetic outcome...

Neo-adjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) is administered in breast cancer treatment for downstaging of disease. Here, we determined the impact of response to NAC on breast reconstruction uptake. A prospective NAC and mastectomy database with or without reconstruction were reviewed with IRB approval. Univariable analyses were conducted using Kruskal-Wallis or Fisher's exact tests. Multivariable logistic regression was used to adjust for potential confounders. We identified 271 patients with unilateral breast cancer receiving NAC and either unilateral or bilateral mastectomy from 9/2013 to 5/2016...

Although rare and accounting for less than 1% of all breast cancers, the incidence of breast cancer in men has increased by 26% over the past few decades. Very little has been reported on the sonographic appearance of benign and malignant male breast conditions. The aim of this study was to describe the ultrasonographic features of male breast disease and the value of ultrasound in the evaluation of male breast disease. Between December 2006 and October 2014, ultrasound examinations were performed in 560 male patients presenting with enlargement of, pain in, and/or a lump in the breast...

Women who inherit a mutated copy of the BRCA gene have a higher lifetime risk of developing breast cancer. No large epidemiological studies exist looking at BRCA mutation carriers in UK populations. All patients with BRCA1/BRCA2 mutation identified between 1995 and 2015 were included. Individuals were identified from a prospectively gathered data base. Genetics case-notes were obtained and retrospective analysis performed. 581 female BRCA mutation carriers were identified with a median age of 34 (18-81) at the time of testing...
