N2: Metastasis to ipsilateral axillary lymph nodes
(s) fixed to one another or to other structures.
38 patients had axillary lymph nodes
positive for metastasis.
Results: The axillary lymph nodes
were positive for carcinoma in 61 cases out of 85(71.
Axillary lymph node
dissection (ALND) is integral part of modified radical mastectomy and is the preferred treatment of clinically positive or sentinel node biopsy (SNB) positive axillary lymph nodes
Sentinel lymph node biopsy after neoadjuvant chemotherapy predicts pathological axillary lymph node
status in breast cancer patients with clinically positive axillary lymph nodes
Because of the synchronised level of axillary dissection (level I-II-III), the number of axillary lymph nodes
In the context of early breast cancer, surgery has formed the cornerstone of the staging and treatment of the axillary lymph nodes
The team say that all 50 women later underwent surgery to remove their cancers and axillary lymph nodes
, and tissue biopsies of the lymph nodes revealed that 20 of them had metastatic cancer and 30 of them had cancer that remained localized at the time of surgery.
It showed a left breast mass with two pathological axillary lymph nodes
We report the case of a 16-year-old girl who presented with epistaxis, fever, submental swelling, and enlargement of multiple cervical and axillary lymph nodes
The left axillary lymph nodes
were still slightly swollen.
Adjuvant chemotherapy also was used later for women in either group who had positive axillary lymph nodes
