Quality-of-life (QOL) has been reported to affect the prognosis of many types of cancer, and several studies used various QOL assessment tools to determine the relationship between QOL and cancer prognosis. In this study, QOL-Questionnaire for Cancer Patients Treated with Anti-Cancer Drugs-the Breast (QOL-ACD-B) was modified to be suitable for preoperative chemotherapy (POC) and was named the QOL-ACD-BP.

Clips are often placed to mark axillary nodes with biopsy-confirmed metastases in patients with breast cancer. The evaluation of clipped nodes after chemotherapy can identify patients who have eradica...
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) has become an essential treatment for breast cancer. However, there is still no consensus on the best tool to evaluate pathological response to NAC.
We recently reported that self-evaluation of the incidence and severity of treatment-related side effects (TSEs) using a National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events ...
Tumors that secrete large volumes of mucus are chemotherapy resistant, however, mechanisms underlying this resistance are unknown. One protein highly expressed in mucin secreting breast cancers is the...
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy can increase the rate of breast-conserving surgery by downstaging disease in patients with breast cancer. The aim of this study was to determine whether patients who received ...
The PROBI is a phase I/II trial assessing the feasibility of preoperative whole breast irradiation in female patients with low to intermediate risk breast cancer, who undergo breast conser...
The sensitivity and specificity of uPAR PET/CT for preoperative detection of lymph node metastases in breast cancer.
The aim of the study is to estimate the effect of preoperative gefitinib on the complete pathological response rate in primary estrogen receptor negative breast cancer at the time of surge...
Near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence imaging using indocyanine green (ICG) has been used for breast cancer surgery such as sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping and breast cancer localization. ...
To determine the sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of preoperative ultrasound, elastography, mammography and breast MRI in women with dense breast tissue diagnosed with breast cancer;...
Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).
Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.
A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)
Cytoplasmic proteins that bind estrogens and migrate to the nucleus where they regulate DNA transcription. Evaluation of the state of estrogen receptors in breast cancer patients has become clinically important.
A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.

Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
