Breast cancer is the most common malignancy affecting women in the US. Surgical management is the mainstay of therapy, and in general consists of resection of the primary tumor with either...
Currently, there is no standard recommendation for using imaging studies to check patients for breast cancer recurrence who have been treated with mastectomy. The investigator proposes per...
Nipple areolar-complex (NAC) sparing mastectomy, extending the concept of skin-sparing mastectomy, allows to leave the nipple-areola complex intact and to provide a better cosmetic result....
Sometimes women have more than one breast cancer in the same breast at the same time. These women are usually offered a mastectomy (removal of that breast) and breast reconstruction. It ma...
The investigators proposed approach allows them to deliver a low total dose of radiation to patients with low-risk, early-stage breast cancer which would further minimize the impact of adj...
Current evidence suggests that patients who have latissimus dorsi (LD) breast reconstruction following mastectomy for breast cancer can experience long-term shoulder dysfunction. However, as there is ...
To improve efficiency, convenience, and cost, a prospective phase II trial was initiated to evaluate accelerated partial breast irradiation delivered with noninvasive image-guided breast brachytherapy...
- A thorough gross examination of specimens for breast cancer requires the tissue to be very thinly sectioned, which is often difficult in large mastectomy samples. We have implemented rapid chilling ...
This study aimed to compare the oncologic outcomes of nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM)/skin-sparing mastectomy (SSM) followed by immediate reconstruction with those of conventional mastectomy (CM) in y...
The purpose of this study was to determine charges following unilateral mastectomy (UM) and bilateral mastectomy (BM) for patients with unilateral breast cancer (UBC). We hypothesized that BM may be a...
Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).
Surgical removal of one or both breasts to prevent or reduce the risk of developing breast cancer in persons who may be predisposed.
Excision of breast tissue with preservation of overlying skin, nipple, and areola so that breast form may be reconstructed.
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)
