Abstract

In order to determine the diagnostic features of recurrences after conservative treatment of breast cancer, 100 files have been studied. Fifty cases of glandular recurrence have been analysed and compared to 50 control cases of same stage, age and follow-up, without recurrence. In 58% of cases, the diagnosis was established during the course of a visit requested by the patient. In 84% of the cases the recurrence was found to be within the tumorectomy zone. The significant glandular pains, mammary density and deformation, nipple retractions and the radiological evidence of microcalcifications and irregular opacities seem to bestrongly indicative of recurrence. The simultaneous clinical and radiological expression of recurrence was not noted in more than 52% of cases.
