Lymph node revealing solution: A new method for detection of minute axillary lymph nodes
in breast cancer specimens.
Enlarged nonfatty axillary lymph nodes
with spiculated or ill-defined margins have a strong association with an underlying malignancy.
The PET was consistent with multiple metastases to the subacromial region and axillary lymph nodes
The previous reported case of axillary lipogranuloma differed from the current case in that it resulted from a silicone breast implant rupture, and developed in the axillary lymph nodes
While the ideal result for a patient undergoing NAC is eradication of the malignancy in the breast and the axillary lymph nodes
, some residual invasive and/or pre-invasive disease may be identifiable by the pathologist after surgery.
Axillary lymph nodes
are distributed at the edge of the chest muscles and into the armpits and lower neck.
Suspicious axillary lymph nodes
in patients with unremarkable imaging of the breast.
Feuerman (3) stated that once carcinoma reaches the axillary lymph nodes
from an extramammary source, the primary lesion is no longer "occult" it will be definitely detectable by initial diagnostic workup.
13) Radiation therapy given to the axillary lymph nodes
can increase the risk of patients developing arm swelling ("lymphedema") following axillary (armpit) dissection.
A gallium scan was consistent with uptake in an area overlying the left breast, anterior chest wall and markedly enlarged left axillary lymph nodes
And the vast majority of study participants were still cancer free at five years--about 84% who had only their sentinel lymph nodes taken and about 82% in the group that had their axillary lymph nodes
For patients with breast cancer, the histologic status of the axillary lymph nodes
remains among the most important of prognostic factors.
