abstract

  • Core needle biopsy can identify palpable breast tumors that are predominantly or completely in situ, and, thus, avoid unnecessary neoadjuvant chemotherapy. It also can demonstrate that a tumor is predominantly invasive, but cannot rule out small invasive foci. For that purpose, complete surgical excision of the tumor is required.
