JAMA. 2008;299(9):1055-1056. doi:10.1001/jama.299.9.1055

In a Clinical Crossroads article published in March 2006,1 Steven E. Come, MD, discussed a 62-year-old woman with a new diagnosis of breast cancer. Ms T underwent a routine mammogram, which had abnormal results. After an ultrasound and biopsy, Ms T was found to have clinical stage I carcinoma of her left breast. She had no family history of breast or ovarian cancer. Her medical history was remarkable for osteopenia.
