A loved one suffered from breast cancer the previous year. The left breast was removed. The recovery after operation was all right. Recently, B-ultrasound showed that the subcutaneous nodules (near the scar site) were found in the chest wall, and the axillary lymph nodes were also seen. Is it possible that the local recurrence occurs? How do you need further examination and treatment?
If breast cancer is found after surgery, if there is an enlarged axillary lymph node in the incision, then there is no possibility of recurrence. Therefore, further examination is needed for pathological examination, such as puncture or excision biopsy. Regular review
Postoperative recurrence of breast cancer can be divided into two cases: local recurrence and distant metastasis. For local recurrence, there will be a proliferative mass near the incision of breast cancer, and the pain is more obvious. The growth rate is faster. When the hand touch is used, the boundary is not very clear, and it is not very smooth, and the mobility is poor. Including common axillary lymph node metastasis and lung, brain and bone metastasis, lung and brain metastases are most common, easy to headaches, nausea and vomiting and cough, cough and other irritating symptoms. Therefore, breast cancer must be reviewed regularly after operation. Regular double lung CT or abdominal color Doppler ultrasound is used to prevent recurrence of breast cancer, early detection of metastatic lesions and targeted therapy.
Hello, this situation has the possibility of recurrence, but it is not easy to judge whether it is recurrence or lymphadenopathy caused by other local problems. You can take local diseased tissue or directly remove the tumor for pathological biopsy, and then take corresponding treatment measures such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy according to the examination results.
