The change in survival in function of the numbers of involved and uninvolved axillary nodes in early breast cancer - i.e. the functional form - was investigated to search for prognostic cutoffs and to assess if ratio-based characterization of node involvement is a significant prognostic factor or not. Women aged 40-69, diagnosed in 1988-1997 with T1-T2 invasive breast carcinoma, who underwent axillary dissection, are selected from the SEER public database. The method determines the functional… CONTINUE READING
