Prediction of unfavourable pediatric breast masses and management recommendations

Author(s): Osnat Zmora

Background: Children and adolescents with breast masses are often cared for by either adult breast surgeons with limited experience with the pediatric population or by pediatric surgeons with limited experience with breast pathologies. There are no specific guidelines for management of pediatric breast masses, and therefore, many surgeons follow adult guidelines and recommend core needle biopsies for pediatric breast masses.
