Q. what are the tests ad steps involved in diagnosis of breast cancer and are all tests reliable?

A. It depends a lot on the age of the patient, but generally the evaluation of breast mass starts with medical history of the patient (including risk factors for breast cancers such as family history and gynecological background) and examining the mass, some times during different phases of the menstrual cycle.

Masses in women younger than 35 years old are usually evaluated initially by ultrasound examination. If the mass is cyst, it could be aspirated. Sometimes, when the mass is suspicious, it may be punctured with a fine needle (FNA) in order to get tissue for pathological examination. Mammography is usually not performed in women younger than 35 because the breasts are too solid.

Masses in women older than 35 will usually undergo mammography and US examination before FNA or other biopsy procedure. In general, breast masses that are not deemed benign should undergo biopsy in this age group.
