Our objectives were to determine the frequency of malignancy in subsequent breast excisions following NCB diagnosis of FEA, and to characterize the pathological and clinical features of associated tumors. Two hundred and fifty-six breast NCBs from a retrospective search (January 1999-July 2007) were blindly reviewed for FEA/other columnar cell lesions (CCLs… CONTINUE READING
