BACKGROUND: The aim of this study is to describe a less aggressive approach to management of positive nipple margin following nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM), allowing for preservation of the nipple-areolar complex (NAC). STUDY DESIGN: A single-institution retrospective chart review was performed for patients undergoing NSM from 1989 to 2017. Positive nipple margin was defined as any residual invasive carcinoma or ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) within the additional nipple margin...

The breast stromal microenvironment is a pivotal factor in breast cancer development, growth and metastases. Although pathologists often detect morphologic changes in stroma by light microscopy, visual classification of such changes is subjective and non-quantitative, limiting its diagnostic utility. To gain insights into stromal changes associated with breast cancer, we applied automated machine learning techniques to digital images of 2387 hematoxylin and eosin stained tissue sections of benign and malignant image-guided breast biopsies performed to investigate mammographic abnormalities among 882 patients, ages 40-65 years, that were enrolled in the Breast Radiology Evaluation and Study of Tissues (BREAST) Stamp Project...

Lung metastasis is a primary obstacle in the clinical treatment of metastatic breast cancer. Most patients with lung metastasis eventually die of recurrence. Recurrence may be related to self-seeding, which occurs when circulating tumor cells re-seed into the tumors they originated from (metastasis or carcinoma in situ). Tumor-derived exosomes have been intensively revealed to promote the progression of various cancers. However, whether tumor-derived exosomes play roles in tumor self-seeding has not yet been identified...

Introduction: For decades, conventional galactography was the only imaging technique capable of showing the mammary ducts. Today, diagnosis is based on a multimodal concept which combines high-resolution ultrasound with magnetic resonance (MR) mammography and ductoscopy/galactoscopy and has a sensitivity and specificity of up to 95%. This study used tomosynthesis in galactography for the first time and compared the synthetic digital 2D full-field mammograms generated with this technique with the images created using the established method of ductal sonography...

Patients who don't want or can't have formal breast reconstruction after mastectomy surgery can be considered for a Goldilocks mastectomy, where the breast fullness is recreated from what is left behind after the gland tissue is removed from underneath the skin in a breast reduction pattern. A Goldilocks mastectomy does not require the use of implants or tissue transfer from other parts of the body and may be completed in a single surgery. This is best suited for larger breasted women who are willing to have much smaller breasts as a result...

Background: Nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) has been proven to be oncologically safe for treating breast cancer. This procedure had been developed to optimize the esthetic outcome and reduce feeling mutilation after mastectomy. Risks of necrotic complications and diminishing nipple-areola complex (NAC) sensation are common complications affecting the patient's satisfaction after the surgery. The evaluation of NAC sensation should be also investigated. Methods: We prospectively analyzed 55 NSMs that were performed on 52 patients for both therapeutic and prophylactic indications in Ramathibodi Hospital from May 2007 to September 2015...

Breast cancer in males represents a small proportion of all cancers diagnosed. Pure ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), a low-grade form of breast cancer, is even more rare in male patients. We present a case of a 47-year-old male patient with a tender breast lump that was noted for 6 months. He was subsequently found to have a low grade, pure micropapillary and cribriform type DCIS with no evidence of invasive disease. Current literature does not provide distinct guidelines regarding management of male breast cancer, and it is currently managed in a similar fashion to female breast cancer...

An on-demand, closed RT-qPCR, the GeneXpert (GX) system, has the potential to provide biomarker information in low-resourced settings and elsewhere. We used this system with a research use only version of the Breast Cancer STRAT4 cartridge that measures the mRNA expression levels of ERBB2, ESR1, PGR, and MKi67. Here we evaluated the impact of non-macrodissected (non m-d) versus macrodissected (m-d) samples using STRAT4 on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) core needle biopsies. Two cohorts were assessed: (1) 60 FFPE infiltrating ductal carcinoma (IDCA) cases and (2) 20 FFPE IDCA cases with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) with a range of HER2 expression as determined by clinical immunohistochemistry and fluorescence in situ hybridization (IHC/FISH)...

BACKGROUND: Nuclear forkhead box protein P1 (N-FOXP1) expression in invasive breast cancer has been documented in the literature. However, the FOXP1 expression patterns at different stages of breast cancer progression are largely unknown, and the significance of cytoplasmic FOXP1 (C-FOXP1) expression in breast cancer has not been well illustrated. The aims of this study were to investigate FOXP1 expression patterns in invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC), ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH) and usual ductal hyperplasia (UDH), and to analyze the clinicopathological relevance of C-FOXP1 and its prognostic value in IDC...

BACKGROUND: Dkk3 protein attenuates the expression of Wnt3a, Wnt5a and LRP6, and their interaction, and interacts with βTrCP to suppress wnt/β-catenin pathway. METHODS: We performed a bioinformatics analysis of Dkk3 mRNA expression through Oncomine, TCGA and Kaplan-Meier databases up to July 10, 2017. RESULTS: Up-regulated Dkk3 expression was higher in gastric, breast, and ovarian cancers than normal tissues (p< 0.05). Bitter's database showed a higher Dkk3 expression in ovarian cytoadenocarcinoma than clear cell adenocarcinoma (p< 0...

A substantial number of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) detected by mammography never progress to invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) and current approaches fail to identify low-risk patients not at need of adjuvant therapies. We aimed to identify the key miRNAs protecting DCIS from malignant evolution, that may constitute markers for non-invasive lesions. We studied 100 archived DCIS samples, including pure DCIS, DCIS with adjacent IDC and pure DCIS from patients with subsequent IDC in contralateral breast or no recurrence...

Patients diagnosed preoperatively with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) breast cancer have the potential to develop invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC). The present study investigated the usefulness of exosome-encapsulated microRNA-223-3p (miR-223-3p) as a biomarker for detecting IDC in patients initially diagnosed with DCIS by biopsy. The potential association between miR-223-3p and clinicopathological characteristics was examined in patients with breast cancer. Exosomes of 185 patients with breast cancer were separated from plasma by ultracentrifugation...
