Tumor size and survival in multicentric and multifocal breast cancer

Rezo, Angela; Shadbolt, Bruce; Rodins, Karl; Zhang, Yanping; Davis, Alison; Dahlstrom, Jane


Purpose: Current AJCC/UICC staging of early breast cancer defines tumor stage using the largest focus, adding the suffix " (m)" to indicate multiplicity. This method may underestimate the total tumor burden in multifocal and multicentric breast cancer (MMBC). This study examines other measures of tumor size in MMBC to determine which provides the best fit in a multivariate model for survival outcomes. Patients and methods: This prospective cohort study used data from the Australian Capital...[Show more]
