Primary Operation in synchronous metastasized invasive breast cancer to evaluate the use of local therapy


This study is a prospective, randomized, multicentre, study concerning the influence of local treatment on the patients with synchronous metastasized breast cancer. Patients will be stratified at inclusion according to the centre, the menopausal status (pre-menopausal, post-menopausal), the hormone-receptor status (ER-/PR-/not determinable; any PR and/or Er+), the HER-2 status (positive vs. negative/not determinable), the grading (G1/G2/not determinable vs. G3), location of metastases (visceral ± vs bone only), organs with metastases (single organ vs multiple organs) and use of first line chemotherapy (anthracycline ± vs. taxane vs others). Thereafter patients will be randomly assigned to receive either local therapy of the breast (lumpectomy or mastectomy + axillary surgery /± radiotherapy) versus no local therapy. Systemic therapy will be administered at the centers policy.

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

The edges of tissue removed in a surgery for assessment of the effectiveness of a surgical procedure in achieving the local control of a neoplasm and the adequacy of tumor removal. When the margin is negative or not involved by tumor (e.g., CANCER) it suggests all of the tumor has been removed by the surgery.
