REVIEW
Dipti Gupta, Laura Billadello
The role of breast MR imaging in preoperative evaluation of disease extent remains controversial. MR imaging increases detection of mammographically occult ipsilateral and contralateral disease, but the clinical impact of these incidental cancers in unknown. There are no randomized trials of recurrence or mortality as the primary end point. This missing evidence is needed before the role of extent of disease MR imaging can be outlined. There are specific clinical scenarios in which breast MR imaging plays a clear role...

Malignant infiltration of pia and arachnoid mater, referred to as leptomeningeal carcinomatosis (LMC), is a rare complication of gastric carcinoma. The most common underlying malignancy in patients with LMC are leukemia, breast cancer, lymphoma, and lung cancer. We report a case of gastric adenocarcinoma that presented with LMC in the absence of overt gastrointestinal signs or symptoms. A 56-year-old Hispanic woman presented to the hospital with a three-week history of intermittent headaches and visual blurring...

BACKGROUND: Sentinel node (SN) biopsy (SNB) detects clinically occult metastases of breast cancer and melanoma in 20-30%. Wound infections, seroma and lymph edema occur in up to 10%. Targeted ultrasound (US) of the SN, (with fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) if appropriate) has been investigated as a minimally invasive alternative, but reported sensitivity rates are too low to replace SNB. Our hypothesis is that the use of a handheld gamma probe concomitant with US may improve sensitivity...

Cancer screening rates among Latinas are generally low, reducing the likelihood of early cancer detection in this population. This article examines the effects of a community intervention (Fe en Acción/Faith in Action) led by community health workers (promotoras) on promoting breast, cervical and colorectal cancer screening among churchgoing Latinas. Sixteen churches were randomly assigned to a cancer screening or a physical activity intervention. We examined cancer knowledge, barriers to screening and self-reported mammography, clinical breast exam, Pap test, fecal occult blood test and sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy at baseline and 12 months follow-up...

OBJECTIVES: Three commonly used techniques for localization of nonpalpable breast cancer are radioactive seed localization (RSL), wire-guided localization (WGL) and radioguided occult lesion localization (ROLL). In this study, we analysed the surgical margins of these three techniques. METHODS: Women diagnosed with nonpalpable breast cancer undergoing breast-conserving surgery with one of the above-mentioned techniques were retrospectively included. The primary outcome parameter was tumour-free margin rate...

The lethality of epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) may be due to common misconceptions regarding etiology and the absence of effective screening and early diagnostic tools. Reviews of histopathological surveys performed on the resected fallopian tubes of breast cancer (BRCA) mutation carriers, who underwent risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy, unexpectedly revealed the presence of occult carcinomas of the fallopian tubes. This finding prompted studies that demonstrated the most accredited theory of type II EOC development, which suggests that a large proportion of these tumors are derived from the fallopian tube...

Cutaneous metastases from primary internal malignancies represent 0.7-9% of patients with cancer. We report a 65-year-old female patient referred for evaluation of normochromic papules on the trunk and upper limbs that had been present for three months. A skin biopsy revealed diffuse cutaneous infiltration by small round cell tumors. Immunohistochemistry was positive for AE1/AE3, CK7, estrogen receptor and mammaglobin. The final diagnosis was cutaneous metastasis of occult breast cancer, since the solid primary tumor was not identified...

The purpose of this study was to compare the characteristics of quantitative perfusion parameters obtained from dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with mammographically occult (MO) breast cancers and those with mammographically visible (MV) breast cancers. Quantitative parameters (AUC, Ktrans,kep,ve,vp, and wi) from 13 MO breast cancers and 16 MV breast cancers were mapped after the DCE-MRI data were acquired. Various prognostic factors, including axillary nodal status, estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), Ki-67, p53, E-cadherin, and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) were obtained in each group...

REVIEW
Lesley Andrews, David G Mutch
Mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 account for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome in a majority of families and 14% of epithelial ovarian cancer cases. Despite next-generation sequencing, other identified genes (Lynch Syndrome, RAD51C, RAD51D, and BRIP1) account for only a small proportion of cases. The risk of ovarian cancer by age 70 is approximately 40% for BRCA1 and 18% for BRCA2. Most of these cancers are high-grade serous cancers that predominantly arise in the fimbriae of the fallopian tube. Ovarian screening does not improve outcomes, so women at high risk are recommended to undergo risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy around the age of 40, followed by hormone replacement therapy (HRT)...

BACKGROUND: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the 2nd most common cancer in women worldwide. In Italy, only 50% of people invited to get the Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) decided to do it. Women's participation in breast and cervical screening is, instead, very high (>70%). The aim of our study was to investigate the beliefs, the feelings and the psychological factors that could influence the participation of women in CRC screening. METHODS: We conducted a cross sectional study, in the Hospital of Siena, Central Italy, in 2011...

PURPOSE: The optimal clinical target volume for internal mammary (IM) node irradiation is uncertain in an era of increasingly conformal volume-based treatment planning for breast cancer. We mapped the location of gross internal mammary lymph node (IMN) metastases to identify areas at highest risk of harboring occult disease. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Patients with axial imaging of IMN disease were identified from a breast cancer registry. The IMN location was transferred onto the corresponding anatomic position on representative axial computed tomography images of a patient in the treatment position and compared with consensus group guidelines of IMN target delineation...

Hidetaka Nomura, Nobuhiro Takeshima
The cumulative risks of developing epithelial ovarian cancer in women aged 70-75years with BRCA1 and BRCA2 germline mutations are approximately 39-40% and 11-18%, respectively. Here, we present the management of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer(HBOC)in our hospital. HBOC management commences with the selection of appropriate candidates for genetic testing, based on personal and familial characteristics that determine the individual's probability of being a mutation carrier. Pre-test counseling, which is an essential element of genetic counseling, should include discussion of why the test is being offered, how the test results may affect medical management, and the cancer risks associated with the gene mutation...

BACKGROUND: Bilateral breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is commonly used in the diagnostic workup of breast cancer (BC) to assess extent of disease and identify occult foci of disease. However, evidence for routine use of pre-operative MRI is lacking. Breast MRI is costly and can lead to unnecessary tests and treatment delays. Clinical care pathways (care paths) are value-based guidelines, which define management recommendations derived by expert consensus and available evidence based data...

BACKGROUND: Patients with a preoperative needle-biopsy diagnosis of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) may have an indication for a sentinel lymph node biopsy if invasive carcinoma is found. We investigated how often a positive sentinel node and invasive carcinoma occurred in patients with a preoperative diagnosis of DCIS and whether this influenced the adjuvant regime. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From 2005 to 2014, the records of 240 patients with needle-biopsy diagnosis of DCIS were retrospectively reviewed for postoperative pathology outcomes of the sentinel node and breast, and decisions on adjuvant treatment...

We report a case of occult cancer. In this case, axillaryly mph node dissection and chemotherapywere useful treatments. The patient was a 71-year-old woman who had left axillaryly mph node swelling. Mammographyshowed the swollen axillary lymph nodes, but there was no lesion in either breast. Ultrasonographyalso showed the swollen axillaryly mph nodes, but there was no malignant lesion in her breasts. CT showed swollen axillaryand mediastinal lymph nodes. We checked her entire body, but could not find a malignant lesion, so we diagnosed an occult cancer...
