On review, these cases could be separated into either small acinar proliferations suspicious for tubular carcinoma, intraductal proliferations consistent with ADH, or proliferative fibrocystic changes with atypia.
Histologically, the 5 "upstaged" cases consisted of 3 infiltrating ductal carcinomas (1 grade 1/3 and 2 grade 3/3), 1 infiltrating lobular carcinoma (grade 2/3), and 1 tubular carcinoma (grade 1/3).
