In “Practice Bulletin No. 164: Diagnosis and Management of Benign Breast Disorders” from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists,1 there is an error in Figure 2 on page e148. In the left-hand lower section of the figure, the branch of boxes titled, “Increase in size or suspicion” and “Stable” incorrectly appear underneath the box titled, “Tissue biopsy” and instead should appear underneath the box, “Observe for 1–2 years to assess stability.” The corrected figure is shown below.
