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...
Recent literature reports that rates of mastectomy are increasing in early breast cancer. However, data from European institutions are limited and revealed conflicting results. We report on 15-year tr...
Positive margins have been reported in 20-40% of patients undergoing a partial mastectomy (PM), often resulting in re-excision. How often the re-excision yields further cancer and whether there are pr...
The aim of this study is to compare the treatment outcomes of breast conserving surgery (BCS) plus radiotherapy (RT) vs. mastectomy for patients with pT1-2N1 triple negative breast cancer (TNBC).
In correlation with the nodal status in the era of modern radiotherapy, the chest wall recurrence (CWR) rate was investigated in pT1-2N0-1 breast cancer patients after a mastectomy without post-mastec...
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...
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)
