Abstract

The emergency digital mammogram, MRI, and accurate large core diagnosis have emphasized the need for interdisciplinary care and close communication of the radiologist, pathologist, medical oncologist, and surgeon. Ultimately, this will help us prevent overtreatment and needless side effects. Such interdisciplinary care and communication and a working knowledge of unusual types of tumors and their presentation are the gold standard necessary to achieve optimal care for our breast cancer patients.
