Assessment of a Breast Lump

(0 votes)

Abstract

Breast cancer remains a leading cause of mortality in women. Four in five new cases are diagnosed in women aged 50 and over, with the peak in the 50 to 64 age group.

Triple assessment is the gold standard method of assessing symptomatic breast lumps, consisting of history and examination, imaging and needle biopsy. The combined accuracy of the three components of triple assessment is greater than the accuracy of any of the individual components.
