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.
