Occult axillary lymph node metastases are of no prognostic significance in breast cancer.

Millis RR, Springall R, Lee AH, Ryder K, Rytina ER, Fentiman IS - Br. J. Cancer (2002)

Bottom Line: The median follow-up was 18.9 years with 153 breast cancer related deaths.Multivariate analysis, however, showed that survival was related to tumour size and histological grade.This node-negative group was compared with a second group of 202 patients who had one involved axillary node found on initial assessment of the haematoxylin and eosin sections; survival was worse in the patients in whom a nodal metastasis was found at the time of surgery.

Overall survival is not related to the size of the largest axillary nodal metastasis in patients with occult metastasis or single node positive, χ2=0.52, P=0.91. Metastasis size was divided using cut-offs of 0.2, 2 and 10 mm.
