Staging [12] is the process of determining how much cancer there is in the body and where it is located. The choice of which treatment to receive can be substantially influenced by comorbidity assessments. A full classification includes histopathological type claificacion, gradestage TNMreceptor statusand the presence or absence of genes as determined by DNA testing:.

British Journal of Cancer ; The impact of different stages on outcome can be appreciated in the following table, published in a textbook, [26] which shows the observed 5-year overall survival of over 50, patients from who were reclassified using the AJCC 5th edition criteria; the data is also available in the AJCC source, [17] which also gives the relative survival rate in comparison to an age-matched actually, age- sex- and race-matched population.

Some breast cancers are aggressive and life-threatening, and must be treated with aggressive treatments that have major adverse effects. The MammaPrint gene pattern is a commercial-stage gene panel marketed by Agendia, [60] that was developed in patients under age 55 years who had lymph node clasiticacion breast cancers N0.

The cancer areas having cells with the greatest cellular abnormalities should be evaluated. This parameter avn how many mitotic figures dividing cells the pathologist sees in 10x high power microscope field.

Breast cancer classification

A different effect on staging arises from evolving technologies that are used to assign patients to particular categories, such that increasingly sensitive methods tend to cause individual cancers to be reassigned to higher stages, making it improper to compare that cancer’s prognosis to the historical expectations for that stage.


Although nuyys significance of many of those genetic differences is unknown, independent analyses by different research groups clasificacioj found that certain groups of genes have a tendency to co-express.

There is some evidence that breast cancers that arise in familial clusterssuch as Hereditary breast—ovarian cancer syndromemay have a dissimilar prognosis.

Invasive breast carcinomas Invasive carcinoma Most are “not otherwise specified” The remainder are given subtypes: The underlying purpose of staging is to describe the extent or severity of an individual’s cancer, and to bring together cancers that have similar prognosis and treatment. The test is run on formalin fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue. Various molecular pathway targets and DNA results are being incorporated in the design of clinical trials of new medicines.

Receptor status was traditionally considered by reviewing each individual receptor ER, PR, her2 in turn, but newer approaches look at these together, along with the tumor gradeto categorize breast cancer into several conceptual molecular classes [33] that have different prognoses [11] and may have different responses to specific therapies.

Efforts are underway to utilize this as prognostic marker and treatment. These methods, and scoring systems that used DNA ploidyare used much less often now, as their predictive and prognostic power was less substantial than other classification schemes such as the TNM stage. DNA microarrays have compared normal cells to breast cancer cells and found differences in the expression of hundreds of genes. Successful validation was seen with Canadian [81] and Dutch [82] cohorts.

Staging information that is obtained prior to surgery, for example by mammography, x-rays and CT scans, is called clinical staging and staging by surgery is known as pathological staging. In the US, the tumor should also be lymph node negative N0but internationally the test may be performed if the lymph node status is negative or positive with up to 3 nodes.

The purpose of classification is to select the best treatment. The validated algorithms can present visually appealing graphics that assist in treatment decisions.

Posted October 17, accessioned Dec 19 and July 03 at http: Breast cancers can be classified by different schemata. American Joint Committee on Cancer May 5. A summary of clasificacino trials using Oncotype is included in the Oncotype DX main article. Stage Information for Breast Cancer. Breast Cancer Research and Treatment. CT appraisal of anatomic distribution”.


Subtype specific incidences are taken from Table 6 Archived at Archive. Other breast cancers are less aggressive and can be treated with less aggressive treatments, such as lumpectomy. For example, if clinical staging reveals stage IV disease, extensive surgery may not be claisficacion, and appropriately incomplete pathological staging information will be obtained. You can help by adding to it. The grading of a cancer in the breast depends on the microscopic similarity of clasoficacion cancer cells to normal breast tissue, and classifies the cancer as well differentiated low-grademoderately differentiated intermediate-gradeand poorly differentiated high-gradereflecting progressively less normal appearing cells that have a worsening prognosis.

It was designed for use in estrogen clasificacioj ER positive tumors. Breast cancer classification divides breast cancer into categories according to different schemes clssificacion and serving a different purpose. A variant from this approach, clasificscion on the basis of physical exam findings, is that inflammatory breast cancer IBCa form of ductal carcinoma or malignant cancer in the ducts, is distinguished from other carcinomas by the inflamed appearance of the affected breast, which correlates with increased cancer aggressivity.

Major importance of the mitotic count as a component of both grading systems”. Journal of Clinical Oncology. Views Read Edit View history. In addition, other classifications of breast cancers do exist and no uniform system has been consistently adopted worldwide.

Advances in Anatomic Pathology. Tumors overexpressing the Wnt signaling pathway co-receptor low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 6 LRP6 may represent a distinct subtype of breast cancer and a potential treatment target.

In cancer, the mechanisms that control genes and chromosomes in the nucleus break down, and irregular nuclei and pleomorphic changes are signs of abnormal cell reproduction.
