Round Block Lumpectomy with Resection of the Nipple
A 53-year-old postmenopausal woman was diagnosed with a 10 mm tumor in the left breast 3 cm from the nipple in the upper outer quadrant. Clinically the patient presented with bloody nipple discharge; mammography found small clusters of suspicious microcalcifications peritumorally. The breast was of small size and non-ptotic (Fig. 3.1a, b).
