PURPOSE To determine the overall survival and local recurrence significance of axillary lymph node extranodal tumor extension (ETE) and whether axillary/chest-wall irradiation influenced any of these outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS The records of 81 breast cancer patients treated with radical or modified radical mastectomy at a single surgical practice were eligible for study. Thirty-four patients had ETE: 17 with focal ETE (< 10 x high-power field) and 17 with extensive ETE (> 10 x high… CONTINUE READING
