The diagnosis of breast disease based on three diagnostic arms: palpation/physical exam, radiologic/imaging evidence and pathological findings (e.g., core biopsy or FNA). Discordance of one of the three arms with the other two (which suggest benign or malignant disease) raises the question of whether that arm has been misinterpreted by the clinical examiner, the radiologist or the pathologist
