Abstract

Tumor recurrence at the site of radical surgery for mammary carcinoma has been studied in 101 cases. Analysis revealed the proximate causes - tumour size, axillary node metastases - and the more extensive type of surgery have a positive correlation even if the P values do not reach the significant value. The prognosis suggests that clinically this phenomenon, seen in the long term, does not differ from that of distant skin and subcutaneous metastases. A treatment strategy is proposed.
