BACKGROUND Occult invasive disease could be found at definitive histology in patients initially diagnosed with large ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). Sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy is a reliable and minimally invasive procedure providing axillary information and avoiding a second operation in this particular group of patients. The aim of our study was to assess the value of SLN biopsy in patients with large DCIS who are at highest risk for being upstaged to invasive carcinoma. PATIENTS AND… CONTINUE READING
