Works in Men For Definitive Diagnosis

Ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration yields a definitive diagnosis in virtually all male breast tumors, according to a report presented at the 100th Annual Meeting of the American Roentgen Ray Society.Breast pathology is rare in men compared with women, and male breast cancers account for only 1% of all breast malignancies, explained Dr. Cynthia Pham from M.D. Anderson Cancer in Houston, Texas.Fine needle aspiration is a technique used to sample tissue from a lump. Using ultrasound guidance to assist the procedure appears to improve its success, according to the study.
