For any sample, optimal fixation and processing of tissue and high-quality hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stained sections are essential. Indeed, a small number of the more diagnostically difficult lesions that may be encountered in histopathology practice may be impossible to assess if optimal fixation, processing, section cutting, and staining have not been undertaken. Core biopsies can be performed with clinical or image-directed guidance methods, the latter under stereotactic mammography, ultrasound, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guidance.

Neoadjuvant therapy, often chemotherapy, is typically given to reduce the size of a tumor mass and to either allow surgical excision (if previously inoperable or locally advanced) or enable breast-conserving surgery (rather than mastectomy) to be performed. In some cases, this may prove so effective that there is a complete pathologic response and no invasive carcinoma remains. More commonly, there is tumor shrinkage, which can, on occasions, make the lesion difficult to identify macroscopically and thus cause difficulties in specimen handling in the pathology laboratory.
