Random periareolar fine needle aspiration (RPFNA) and ductal lavage (DL) are research techniques developed to (1) assess short-term breast cancer risk in asymptomatic women who are at increased risk for breast cancer and (2) track cytological response to risk reduction strategies. RPFNA and DL provide minimally invasive methods to repeatedly sample epithelial cells and research tools to investigate the biological origins of breast cancer in high-risk women. This review gives an overview of the… CONTINUE READING
