Nottingham classification

The Nottingham classification is used at the end of work up of a breast lesion to help guide management.

  • A = malignant
    • lesion needs surgical excision regardless of biopsy result
  • B = indeterminate
    • will accept a benign biopsy result, but only if it is congruent with imaging, i.e a well circumscribed mass is allowed to come back with fibroadenoma but a result of 'normal breast tissue' will not be accepted
  • C = benign
