C5

A diagnostic category based on the NHSBSP guidelines for reporting fine needle aspiration cytology of breast lesions. C5 aspirates are adequate and contain cells with features that are frankly malignant; some centres divide them into C5a (carcinoma in situ) and C5b (invasive carcinoma). The smears are usually highly cellular with single or dissociated clusters of malignant cells, with increased nuclear:cytoplasmic ratio, markedly pleomorphic cells with hyperchromatic nuclei, prominent nucleoli, irregular nuclear membrane and chromatin, and often a necrotic background.
