Breast cancer is one of the most common oncological diagnoses around the world. In the study and treatment of breast cancer, several professionals face various challenges: radiologists face challenges in pre-surgical diagnosis through imaging and new 3D techniques; pathologists face challenges in formulating pathology reports and in the clinical management of breast lesions with uncertain malignant potential (B3: papillary lesions; pre-neoplastic diseases), as well as in determining their terminology according to 2019 WHO classification; pathologists and oncologists face challenges in the reproducibility of immunohistochemical assessment of biomarkers, intratumoral heterogeneity, reporting, and the use of new diagnostic tools, such as TILs evaluation.
A multidisciplinary team is currently the strongest and most robust instrument in the management of breast cancer patients, with widening applications in every hospital. A multidisciplinary oncological team is not a simple sum of each of its components; rather, it is the result of a multiplication of professionals’ capabilities, leading to the most appropriate choice of treatment for a given patient.
