The aim of this study was to determine whether the excess risk of axillary lymph node metastases (N+) differs between interval breast cancers arising shortly after a negative mammography and those presenting later. In a registry-based series of pT1a-pT3 breast carcinoma patients aged 50-74 years from the Italian screening programmes, the odds ratio (OR) for interval cancers (n=791) versus the screen-detected (SD) cancers (n=1211) having N+ was modelled using forward stepwise logistic regression… CONTINUE READING
