There is no study evaluating the significance of nodal metastatic tumor characteristics in tumor progression of invasive ductal carcinomas (IDCs) of the breast. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether nodal metastatic tumor characteristics play an important role in the tumor progression of IDCs. The subjects of this study were 205 IDC patients with nodal metastases. Significant associations with increased numbers of nodal metastases, and patient outcomes were evaluated by… CONTINUE READING
