Background Information

Approximately 1.2 million women in the United States have a breast biopsy performed each year. Of those, approximately 200,000 will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Axillary lymph node status is one of the most important prognostic factors for women diagnosed with the disease and impacts the choice of post surgical therapy. Surgery to remove all axillary lymph nodes for examination by the pathologist (axillary lymph node dissection or ALND) remains an integral and potentially curative component of breast cancer care. However, it is a serious procedure associated with the risk of unwanted side effects including lymphedema, restriction of arm movement and nerve complications. Until recently, most women underwent an ALND unnecessarily. (2)
