 In this study of  45 vacuum-biopsied FEA, the underestimation rate was 6.7 % (3/45).


We conclude that a diagnosis of FEA with vacuum-assisted biopsy requires surgical excision, but the size of the lesion and the percentage of microcalcifications removed may be helpful in predicting the possibility of upgrade to malignancy.
