Abstract

The recent results of the Early Breast Cancer Trialists’ Cooperative Group meta-analysis have demonstrated that post-mastectomy radiotherapy reduces breast cancer recurrence and mortality in women with positive axillary lymph nodes—independently from the number of the lymph nodes involved—with no significant effect in patients with node-negative axillary status.
