OBJECTIVE: The rising number of breast cancer is the worldwide problem. The screening mammography is considered as the most effective method to decrease the mortality of the disease. For many years, the breast self-examination has been promoted as the simplest method for breast cancer development in women. In this review article, we provide the results of studies on the effectiveness of breast self-examination. DESIGN: Review article. SETTING: Departmnet of Gynecologic and Obstetrition, General Faculty Hospital and 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University Prague...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the diagnostic value of mammography, computed tomography (CT), and dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) for axillary lymph node staging in breast cancer patients. METHODS: From February, 2014 to October, 2015, 109 women with breast cancer received examinations with preoperative mamography, CT, and DCE-MRI. The diagnostic sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value of the 3 modalities were evaluated using histopathologic assessments as the gold standard...

The scope of this review was to assess the strength of evidence for the current Portuguese performance indicator on breast cancer screening with mammography in order to determine the recommended age group and periodicity for screening. A search for articles was conducted in the main international databases of medical literature. Articles published between January 2006 and January 2012 addressing the objectives of this review were included. The SORT taxonomy was used to classify the results. Of the 253 articles, five articles met the inclusion criteria and were selected for review...

UNLABELLED: The sentinel lymph node (SLN) is of considerable prognostic relevance, because extended lymph node dissection may not be performed in patients presenting with histologically negative SLN. The aim of this study was to prove the prognostic value of the SLN-concept in these patients in long term follow-up. PATIENTS, METHODS: The clinical follow-up of 202 women with histologically proven breast cancer and metastatically uninvolved (negative) SLN, as determined using Tc-99m-nanocolloid, was observed for a mean period of 43...

The purpose of this study was to determine the feasibility and effectiveness of ROLL technique for the identification and excision of ipsilateral nonpalpable multiple breast lesions. Between August 2005 and August 2010, eight women, aged 40-61 years, with a radiographic evidence of two separate nonpalpable lesions within the same breast underwent ROLL, as we termed it, double-ROLL. Each lesion was localized with Tc-99m-labeled human serum albumin macroaggregate under ultrasonography or mamography control. A gamma probe was used to guide surgical excisions...

Breast cancer is really one from tumor with highest mortality in this country as well as in the word. For early detection of the loco-regional breast cancer and disease confirmation, many diagnostic procedures were recommended with aims to help in decision for surgery treatment. This comparative study reported data by clinical analyses, ultra-sonography, mammography and histological findings obtained after ex tempore biopsy, in 59 women with breast cancer aged from 16 to 69. The highest incidence of cancer was obtained in women over 61 years of age, although high rate of breast cancer was found in aging between 21 to 50 years...

DEFINITION: Cancer of unknown primary (CUP) origin refers to patients who present with histologicaly confirmed metastatic cancer in whom a detailed medical history, complete physical examination, including pelvic and rectal examination, full blood count and biochemistry, urinalysis and stool occult blood testing, hisinpathological review oJ biopsy speimens with the use of immunohistochemistry, chest radiography, computed tomography of the abdomen and pelvis, and in certain cases mammography, fail to identify the primary site...

This article describes a two-pronged intervention by the health care Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) for Connecticut to address the disparity in rates of mammography screening between women eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid (i.e., "dually eligible") and other Medicare beneficiaries. The interventions were directed beneficiaries. One intervention addressed information and access needs of the target population: an education session was followed by a mobile mammography van session at low-income housing sites in specific geographic areas...

Nonpalpable breast tumors are of great importance in order to achieve early diagnosis and improve the treatment results of breast cancer. Three hundred and sixty six patients with such pathology were investigated at the Institute of Oncology, Vilnius University. The core biopsy was performed for all patients. Benign breast tumors were diagnosed to 260 patients and conservative treatment was administered to patients with benign breast disease. One hundred and six patients with diagnosed or suspected nonpalpable breast carcinoma underwent surgery...

It is recognized that the breast cancer is frequently accompanied by local and regional nodal metastases, but contralateral axillary dissemination is considered a rarity. It is presented a case of a 42 old female patient with intraductal multicentric right mamar carcinoma (T2) with bilateral axillary nodal metastases who had underwent to the complex treatment: surgical, chemotherapy and radiotherapy and hormonal therapy. The prognosis is reserved. It is required a careful supervision from point of view clinical biological, mamography, echography, tomography, RMN for diagnosis of recurrences, metastases and becoming a bilateral cancer at the remaining breast...

The publication of the new Cochrane review on screening for breast cancer with mamography has revived the debate on breats screening and raised some new topics. Whereas the Cochrane reviewers reasserted on their previous conclusion of the lack of efficacy of breast screening, the new review of the Swedish studies, the new systematic review of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality commissioned by the US Preventive Services Task Force, and the recent review of an IARC working group supported the efficacy of breast screening after carefully considering the methodological quality of trials...

In the present study we evaluated comparatively the diagnostic value of mammography, of 99mTc-sestamibi scintimammography (sestamibi-SC) and of colour Doppler ultrasonography (CD-US) in 116 breast lesions. Diagnosis was based on histopathological examination. Overall, out of 86 malignant tumours, 80 (93%) and 75 (87%) had a positive sestamibi-SC and positive CD-US, respectively. Out of 30 benign lesions, 25 (83%) and 26 (87%) had a negative sestamibi-SC and negative CD-US respectively. The true positive results were similar in palpable and in non-palpable lesions for both methods...

Multiple technical and strategical improvements have modified surgical management of breast cancer. Screening mamographies are able to focus small tumors in which excision eventually after percutaneous biopsy can necessitate two surgical procedures. Reduction of axillary dissection in these small lesions can benefit from sentinel node biopsy technique. Immediate or delayed breast reconstruction reduces the mutilation of the mastectomies with their psycho-social disaster. Technically these reconstruction requires a multidisciplinary approach and psychological support...

A pilot program with primary care physicians was established in Clinica Cuauhtémoc y Famosa, focused to evaluate women older than 35 years with climateric symptoms. This program included a survey, a complete gynecological examination with Pap smears, ultrasound pelvic examination and mamography. Also, blood samples were collected for cholesterol, tryglycerides, calcium, phosphorus and alkaline phosphatase. An ECG, bone densitometry of the radius and X-rays of the vertebral column were obtained. This group was formed by 69 women with an age media of 50 years (SD 7...

Twenty-eight women participating in a screening program had a breast cancer diagnosed subsequent to the report of a negative mammogram which was read by only one of a group of radiologists. Fourteen occurred prior to a scheduled routine screening visit (interval cancers) and 14 were detected during such an examination. The negative mammograms from the 28 cancer patients, together with those from 120 women without cancer (controls) were independently reviewed by each member of a panel of three radiologists. Forty-six percent of the cancer cases and 5...
