Many malignant tumors have a morphologically recognizable precursor lesion. As screening and early detection have more advantageous our skill to realize lesions at more and more previous levels of development, an elevated variety of precancerous lesions are visible by means of pathologists. regrettably, a scarcity of uniform histologic standards for precursors present in many organs could make diagnostic interpretation tough.

Example text

Large numbers may be sampled, particularly from screen-detected microcalcifications, to gain sufficient representative material. In some centers, the vacuumassisted large-bore needle technique is used as the firstline approach for some mammographic calcifications, but it may also be used for excision of small benign lesions, such as fibroadenomas. Vacuum-assisted techniques have the advantage over spring-loaded devices in that they permit collection of numerous contiguous samples with a single needle insertion rather than multiple insertions, as required in the latter.

The pathologic features that should be reported for DCIS are lesion size, margin status, nuclear grade, and presence of necrosis (see Chapter 17 for detailed discussion of DCIS). For invasive carcinoma, the minimum histologic data set includes largest focus of invasive tumor, distance to margins, histologic grade, presence of lymphovascular invasion, presence of DCIS, hormone receptor and HER2 status, and lymph node status (further discussed in Chapters 19, 20, 23, and 24). Ideally, this information should be provided in a synoptic report format using checklists such as those provided by the College of American Pathologists.

LOBULAR NEOPLASIA Similarly, one cannot always determine the extent and degree of an atypical intralobular epithelial proliferation in the limited sample of a core biopsy, and thus atypical lobular hyperplasia cannot be reliably distinguished from lobular carcinoma in situ in all cases. For this reason, typically this process is categorized as lobular neoplasia (LN) on core biopsy samples. This does not have the same clinical implication as a diagnosis of DCIS: LN is most commonly radiologically silent and its presence in a core biopsy is considered an incidental finding in the majority of cases.
