Breast Cancer Grading and Staging

In Grading of Breast Cancer, Histological grade provides important prognostic and management information.  The internationally accepted system is that defined by Elston and Ellis1. Grading is Assess by evaluating acinar formation, nuclear size/pleomorphism and mitotic activity. The Nuclear evaluation is the most subjective and can lead to inconsistency. Although originally designed for grading NST tumours it is recommended that it is applied to all cancers. An attempt should be made to grade the pre-operative core biopsy as there is acceptable concordance with excision grade. Staging: Stage is usually expressed as a number on a scale of 0 through IV - with stage 0 describing non-invasive cancers that remain within their original location and stage IV describing invasive cancers that have spread outside the breast to other parts of the body.
