This 46 year old woman with an unremarkable past medical history presented with a 2.0 cm palpable right axillary lymph node. She was subsequently found to have a 1.5 cm discrete, solid mass in the upper outer quadrant of the right breast, and a palpable (1.0 cm) right supraclavicular lymph node. Fine needle aspiration (FNA) was performed of the breast (under ultrasound guidance) and axillary lesions, followed by needle core biopsies of the breast and FNA of the supraclavicular node.
