The objective of this lecture is to review clinical management of women with the following histologic lesions associated with increased breast cancer risk: flat epithelial atypia (FEA), atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH), atypical lobular hyperplasia (ALH), and lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS). Women found to have one or more of these histologic findings in a benign breast biopsy have an increased risk of developing a future breast cancer. Published data will be reviewed that provides estimates of annual and longterm risk associated with these lesions. In addition, management of these lesions after core biopsy will be discussed, specifically the circumstances when surgical excision is recommended. Medical and surgical options for breast cancer risk reduction will be reviewed, as well as their appropriate clinical indications.
