Summary of "Spontaneous regression of occult breast cancer with axillary lymph node metastasis: A case report."

Spontaneous regression of a malignant tumor is defined as "the partial or complete disappearance of a malignant tumor in the absence of any treatment." Herein, we report a case of occult breast cancer with axillary lymph node metastasis that showed spontaneous tumor regression based on the histopathological findings.

Risk factors for axillary lymph node metastases in clinical stage T1-2N0M0 breast cancer patients.

Axillary lymph node metastasis (ALNM) is commonly the earliest detectable clinical manifestation of breast cancer when distant metastasis emerges. This study aimed to explore the influencing factors o...

Lymph node infiltration, parallel metastasis and treatment success in breast cancer.

The number of axillary positive lymph nodes (pLN) is the most important clinical prognostic factor in breast cancer (BC). To date, there is limited knowledge of LN-spreading and metastasization (MET).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).

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)

Removal of the breast, pectoral muscles, axillary lymph nodes, and associated skin and subcutaneous tissue.

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 deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
