Abstract :

A second opinion in breast cancer pathology reports may be requested when a patient is referred from another institution for treatment. This may uncover significant discrepancies that impact on patient management and prognosis. These discrepancies are related to the histologic diagnosis, the presence or absence of invasion in carcinomas, and the results of predictive factors of response (hormone receptors and HER2). A significant improvement in the concordance among pathologists in the assessment of breast cancer lesions can be achieved by careful histologic study, following standardized criteria and using high quality techniques. Also, complete and accurate clinical information is needed for pathological assessment.
