Abstract

With the rapid rise in incidence of micropapillary carcinoma, there is considerable interest in active surveillance or deferred intervention in patients with incidental micropapillary carcinoma. The risk of disease progression is different based on the age of the patient. It is high in third and fourth decade, while very low in sixth and seventh decade. Appropriate selection and close surveillance is very critical, with active involvement of the multidisciplinary team.
