The objective of this one-institutional study was to determine the number of large-core needle biopsies LCNB , under three-dimensional ultrasound 3D-US validation, that are sufficient to obtain a reliable histological diagnosis of a sonographically detectable breast lesion. Data of biopsied breast lesions were gathered. Surgical follow-up was available for lesions. Breast malignancies were diagnosed by ultrasound-guided LCNB with a sensitivity of In few cases, the open surgical specimen revealed the presence of invasive carcinomas in contrast to initial LNCB-based classification as ductal carcinomas in situ DCIS, 11 lesions , lobular carcinoma in situ one lesion , and atypical ductal hyperpasia one lesion. Owing to disagreement between classification based on breast-imaging and histological findings, eight of these tumours were subsequently excised.
At some point in your life, you may have a lump or change in your breast or an abnormal finding on a mammogram.

A biopsy is the only test that can diagnose breast cancer.
