Sentinel Node Biopsy: Breast Cancer Lymph Node Surgery

We teach you why lymph nodes are important in breast cancer treatment. A sentinel node biopsy is the most common surgery performed to assess if cancer has spread to the axillary lymph nodes. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ _____________________________________ Questions for your Breast Surgeon: 1. Am I a candidate for a “sentinel lymph node biopsy?” 2. If I have a “positive node” how will that change my treatment plan? 3. Under what situations might I need an “axillary dissection?” 4. What will you do if you find one or two nodes with cancer? 5. What are the side effects of the biopsy? 6. Can I avoid lymph node surgery altogether? Knowing your “lymph node status” helps determine which combination of therapies are best for treating your unique cancer. Only about 30% of all patients diagnosed with invasive breast cancer are found to have cancer in their lymph nodes. If cancer travels to the lymph nodes, these cells typically go to the axillary lymph nodes under the arm on the same side of the newly diagnosed breast cancer. These cells usually lodge in the first 1, 2, or 3 lymph nodes (known as “sentinel nodes”) and grow there. Research suggests that cancer typically spreads to the sentinel nodes before the other 10 to 20 axillary nodes everyone has under the arm. If you are found to have cancer in your lymph nodes, you will likely be offered chemotherapy if you can tolerate it. It is less likely you will need chemotherapy if your lymph nodes are “negative.” Your lymph node status is one of many factors in deciding your treatment options. “Sentinel Node Biopsy” vs. “Axillary Dissection” A sentinel lymph node biopsy has replaced the more extensive “axillary dissection” for most early stage breast cancer surgeries. A sentinel node biopsy is easier to perform, is just as accurate, and causes fewer side effects than an axillary dissection. An axillary dissection is a more extensive surgery that removes all of the axillary lymph nodes and results in more armpit sensation loss and an increased risk of lymphedema than the less invasive sentinel node biopsy. There are some situations where an axillary dissection is still clearly needed. Having detected cancer in the lymph nodes before surgery is usually an indication for an axillary dissection. In some instances, if you are found to have cancer present in the sentinel nodes, you might need an axillary dissection. Our goal with this course is to give you an outline on axillary surgery so you can better make these decisions with your breast surgeon. How is a sentinel lymph node biopsy performed? Hours before your breast surgery, you will likely undergo a small injection into the skin of your breast of a mildly radioactive “tracer.” This tracer slowly filters through the lymphatic system of the breast to the first one or two axillary lymph nodes (sentinel nodes) under your arm. These are the same lymph nodes that breast cancer cells would first travel to from the breast. A blue dye injection is also commonly used in addition to the radioactive tracer. Your surgeon will use a small probe (similar to a Geiger counter) during surgery to find your sentinel nodes. The dye can also turn the same sentinel nodes blue in color, assisting your surgeon in finding them. The term “biopsy” implies taking just a piece of these nodes. In fact, these “sentinel nodes” are removed intact. The average number of sentinel nodes removed is only about three of the 10 – 20 lymph nodes normally present under the arm. Are there side effects of a sentinel node biopsy? Sentinel node surgery is a much less invasive procedure than an axillary dissection. The risks do include pain and discomfort in the armpit that does improve over time. You may have some permanent, partial sensation loss in the armpit and upper, inner arm. There is a slight risk of mild lymphedema. If your surgeon uses “blue dye” during the surgery to help find the sentinel nodes, there is a 1 to 2 % chance of having an allergic reaction to the dye. Does a “positive” sentinel node mean an axillary dissection? Until recently, surgeons would remove the sentinel lymph nodes and immediately have a pathologist evaluate the nodes under the microscope to see if cancer was present. For years, if any cancer was found in a sentinel node, surgeons would go ahead and remove all the nodes during the same surgery. This “axillary dissection” results in more long-term side effects than a sentinel node biopsy surgery. In 2011, the ACOSOG Z00011 clinical trial showed that carefully selected women with early stage cancer undergoing a lumpectomy can now avoid an axillary dissection if only one or two sentinel nodes are found to be involved with a small amount of cancer.

Axilary Lymph Node Biopsy and Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy For Breast Cancer - Lazoi.com
 
01:30
An axillary lymph node Biopsy is surgical procedure to remove lymph nodes from the armpit (underarm). The lymph nodes in the armpit are called axillary lymph nodes (underarm lumps). An axillary lymph node Biopsy is also called axillary dissection, axillary node dissection or axillary lymphadenectomy. Breast Sentinel Biopsy involves removing the first lymph node (or nodes) in the armpit to which cancer cells are likely to spread from the breast. It’s essential that sentinel node biopsy is done by a surgeon who is trained and experienced in this method. Sentinel node biopsy is usually done during breast surgery (Surgery to remove breast cancer). Sometimes it may be performed as a separate procedure. The length of time it takes to do sentinel node biopsy varies for individual women. A lymph node biopsy removes lymph node tissue to be looked at under a microscope for signs of infection or a disease, such as cancer. Other tests may also be used to check the lymph tissue sample, including a culture, genetic tests, or tests to study the body's immune system. Lymph nodes are part of the immune system. They are found in the neck, behind the ears, in the armpits glands, and in the chest, belly, and groin. To remove these lumps, lump node biopsy surgery is used. Lumpectomy or lumpectomy surgery for breast cancer is surgery to remove cancer or other abnormal tissue from your breast. Lumpectomy is also called breast conserving surgery or wide local excision because unlike a mastectomy, only a portion of the breast is removed. Doctors may also refer to Breast cancer lumpectomy as an excisional biopsy. Symptoms of breast lump • you discover a new lump • an area of your breast is noticeably different than the rest • a lump does not go away after menstruation • a lump changes or grows larger • your breast is bruised for no apparent reason • the skin of your breast is red or begins to pucker like an orange peel • you have an inverted nipple (if it was not always inverted) • you notice bloody discharge from the nipple Treatment of breast lump If the lump is found to be breast cancer, treatment can include: • lumpectomy, or removing the lump • mastectomy, which refers to removing your breast tissue • chemotherapy, which uses drugs to fight or destroy the cancer • radiation treatment for breast cancer, a treatment that uses radioactive rays or materials to fight the cancer Breast lump removal is surgery to remove a lump that present breast cancer. Tissue around the lump is also removed. This surgery is called a lumpectomy. When a noncancerous tumor such as a fibroadenoma of the breast is removed, it is often called an excisional breast biopsy, instead of a lumpectomy. There are two types of breast cancer surgery: Breast conserving surgery (also called a lumpectomy (used for breast cancer treatment), quadrantectomy, partial mastectomy, or segmental mastectomy) – in which only the part of the breast containing the cancer is removed. How lymph node biopsy surgery performed The sentinel node is then checked for the presence of cancer cells by a pathologist. If cancer is found, the surgeon may remove additional lymph nodes, either during the same biopsy procedure or during a follow-up surgical procedure. SLNBs may be done on an outpatient basis or may require a short stay in the hospital.

Submit your question now at, ‪http://www.breastcanceranswers.com/ask‬ In this clip, Jay Harness, MD, FACS explains what a sentinel lymph node biopsy is. What is a sentinel lymph node biopsy? Well, if you think of this a centaurian, a guard, the sentinel lymph nodes are the lymph nodes nearest to where a tumor is. Sentinel lymph nodes can be on the lymph nodes in the axilla, in the breast, or some other locations near the breast, but they can also be the lymph nodes in the head and neck area that might be draining a thyroid cancer, or a colon cancer, or whatever. The concept here is that if cancer cells are going to metastasize and grow in lymph nodes, the theory is that they will go to the initial lymph nodes draining that area. Those are called the sentinel lymph nodes. How do we identify the sentinel lymph nodes in breast cancer? Two ways: One is we inject a radioactive isotope into the breast and that those particles migrate down to the sentinel lymph node, or nodes, and sit there, and we can then find them with a little Geiger counter; and/or we can inject blue dye which will again go down the lymphatic channels and sit in the lymph nodes. So those are the two typical ways that we use to identify sentinel lymph nodes. We particularly use this technique with invasive cancers, but there are certain high-grade in situ breast cancers where we may also wish to check the sentinel lymph nodes.

Genomic Testing in Breast Cancer: What You Must Know
 
14:37
We teach you about genomic testing and how these sophisticated tests can guide you to personalized therapies for your breast cancer. THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BreastCancerSchoolForPatients/ ________________________________ Questions for your Breast Surgeon and Medical Oncologist: *Do I qualify for an Oncotype DX genomic test? *If so, will you order genomic testing for me? *Would you order a genomic test before I see a medical oncologist? *Are there any other genomic tests that apply to me? *What is a genomic assay? These sophisticated tests are performed on a small sample of cancer tissue in appropriate patients with early stage breast cancer. Genomic tests are usually ordered after surgery when the pathology report is finalized. It measures unique aspects of the tumor to determine if a patient will benefit from chemotherapy in addition to hormonal therapy. Such “genomic assays” developed over the last decade are a dramatic advance in breast cancer care. The Oncotype DX assay by Genomic Health Inc. is the most utilized genomic assay of those available in the United States. Who should consider a genomic test? Patients who have small “Estrogen receptor positive” (ER+) and “HER2 receptor negative” (HER2-) tumors and no evidence of cancer in their lymph nodes may benefit from an Oncotype DX assay. The purpose of this test is to better identify people who do and do not benefit from chemotherapy. The decision to undergo chemotherapy is a complicated one. Your medical oncologist will examine multiple factors to help determine if you will benefit from chemotherapy. The NCCN Guidelines, listed in the website links below, outline in much greater detail recommendations for the use of genomic tests. An Oncotype DX test can be instrumental in this decision for many patients. You may qualify for a Genomic Assay if… You have early stage cancer (Stage I or II) Your tumor is Estrogen receptor positive (ER+) Your tumor is Her2 receptor negative (HER2-) No cancer was found in your lymph nodes You are willing to consider having chemotherapy You are healthy enough to undergo chemotherapy How is chemotherapy tailored to patients? Genomic breast cancer tests are a leap forward in our ability to “look inside” breast cancer cells. Sophisticated breast cancer care is based upon the principle of providing maximal benefit from the least toxic therapy. Newly diagnosed breast cancer patients deserve the best information available to decide whether they need chemotherapy. Take our video lesson on “Will I Need Chemotherapy?“ (here) to understand the general concepts. Genomics is a promising and rapidly developing field. OTHER GENOMIC TESTS: Oncotype DX Breast DCIS Test This assay of DCIS or “precancerous” breast cells may help identify some women who may not benefit from radiation therapy after a lumpectomy. Genomic Health Inc. is a leading personalized medicine company. More information is about this test is located (here). MammaPrint This genomic test is used for Stage I and II breast cancers to determine prognosis and survival. This test is now included in national guidelines for some with hormone sensitive breast cancers that are found to have a small amount of cancer in a few lymph nodes. It is also a genomic test for some without “node positive” breast cancer. Agendia is a leader in personalized and molecular cancer diagnostics. More information about MammaPrint is located (here). Endopredict EndoPredict is a 2nd generation genomic breast cancer recurrence test to assess for 10-year risk of cancer recurrence. This test also accounts for tumor size in helping determine if chemotherapy may be needed in early stage, favorable breast cancers. Myriad Genetics is global leader in genetic testing and personalized medicine. More information about Endopredict is located (here). Breast Cancer Index (BCI) This test is designed for women with favorable, early stage breast cancer who have been on hormonal therapy for 4 to 5 years. It can help determine if someone will benefit (or can avoid) five additional years of hormonal therapy, such as tamoxifen or an aromatase inhibitor. This test is not yet approved by the FDA. Medicare and some insurance companies may cover the cost. Biotheranostics is a molecular diagnostics company. More information about BCI is located (here). Take Home Message: Make sure to ask both your breast surgeon and medical oncologist if a genomic assay might play a role in your treatment decisions. For appropriate patients, these tests should be considered only one piece of the many “pieces of the puzzle” in deciding treatment decisions about chemotherapy and hormonal therapy.

Sentinel Lymph node biopsy
 
03:26
SENTINAL LYMPH NOD SAMPLING IN BREAST CANCER Sentinel lymph node sampling in breast cancers is a method used to determine whether breast cancer is spread to the axillary region or not. If there is no tumor in the sentinel lymph node, there is no spread to the axillary lymph nodes and no procedure is performed to the axillary region. Sentinel lymph node is the first lymph node that the tumor cells reaches in the axillary region. This method is applied to all patients whose disease is thought to be localized in the breast and who do not have any distant metastasis. In the sentinel lymph node sampling; a very low amount of methylene blue dye is injected under the nipple or around the tumor. The dye reaches to the sentinel lymph node by following the lymph channels such as tumor cells. By examining the tissues under the axillary region during surgery, the sentinel lymph node is detected an removed. And than sentinel lymph node is sent to the pathological examination. Nowaday, the most important problem is removal of the breast masses without a sentinel lymph node sampling in patients who have known or suspected lesions in terms of cancer. Sentinel lymph node sampling cannot be performed after removal of the breast lesions in this group patient, and resulting axillary lymph node dissection in order to make the right cancer staging in breast cancer. For this reason, the diagnosis of breast masses should be made by means of needle biopsies. If the diagnosis cannot be made with these methods, the the sentinel lymph node biopsy should be added while removing the mass with surgery. Removal of the axillary lymph nodes is not an innocent procedure. Axillary dissection brings many problems such as; lymphedema, seroma (fluid accumulation), paresthesia (drowsiness) and wound healing. And leads the restriction of the arm movement in the patients. The incidence of axillary lymp node invasion is low in patients with small breast tumors. Therefore, the status of axillary lymph nodes should be examined prior to an aggressive treatment,. To avoid unnecessary removal of axillary lymph nodes, the evaluation of sentinel lymph nodes should be performed. However, this method is not suitable in the large tumors, inflammatory breast cancers, the presence of palpabl lymph nodes in the axillary region, and the patients who underwent surgical intervation or radiotherapy (irradiation) to the axilary region.

What Is A Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy
 
00:52
Sentinel lymph node biopsy is one of the new innovations in surgical management for breast cancer. In the past, the typical treatment for breast cancer used to be that every woman with breast cancer had every lymph node removed. This caused many problems because when taking out all lymph nodes, it causes chronic arm swelling. Physicians soon realized that this treatment could be done better. Now, doctors look for the lymph node most likely draining the breast. Sentinel lymph node biopsy is a technique that is used to identify the lymph node most likely to be responsible to be draining the breast.

Breast Cancer Axillary Ultrasound: Find involved nodes
 
08:41
We teach you how a simple ultrasound of your axillary lymph nodes can tell you more about your breast cancer and expand your treatment options. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ __ Questions for your Breast Surgeon: 1. Will you ultrasound my axillary lymph nodes today? 2. If not, will you order an axillary ultrasound by a radiologist? 3. Would my treatment change if we found cancer in my axillary nodes? 4. What are the benefits of Neoadjuvant Chemo? 5. Why is Neoadjuvant Chemo recommended more now? 6. Why ultrasound my axillary lymph nodes before surgery? At diagnosis, one third of patients already have cancer in the lymph nodes under their arm (axilla). When the “Axillary Lymph Nodes” are involved with breast cancer your cancer is more threatening one. This information can dramatically change your treatment options. Studies have shown that “positive” axillary lymph nodes are commonly missed by your breast surgeon’s physical examination. A 5-minute ultrasound of your axilla can more accurately find cancer in these nodes. A pre-operative axillary ultrasound is a “cutting edge” advance in breast cancer care. Make sure to ask your breast surgeon about an axillary ultrasound when they are examining you. Many large cancer centers routinely utilize pre-operative axillary ultrasounds. How can this change my treatment plan? If an obviously abnormal node is found before surgery, then you have a more serious cancer. If appropriate, an ultrasound guided needle biopsy can be performed to confirm the node is involved with cancer. If you have cancer in your nodes, you will likely require chemotherapy either before (neoadjuvant chemotherapy) or after surgery (adjuvant chemotherapy). Regardless of the findings of an axillary ultrasound, a surgical evaluation of your axillary lymph nodes will be needed when you undergo a definitive breast cancer surgery. The surgical procedures used today for lymph nodes are a “sentinel node biopsy” or an “axillary dissection.” What are the benefits of knowing you have involved nodes? Knowing you have “node positive” breast cancer before surgery can empower your breast cancer team to search for more sophisticated treatment options. A simple axillary ultrasound for early stage breast cancer identifies more “node positive” patients. If you are found early in your journey to have node positive breast cancer, more  pre-operative treatment options may be considered. We list some of the treatment benefits below. Multidisciplinary Cancer Team Lymph node “positive” breast cancer requires a more sophisticated treatment approach. An axillary ultrasound can help determine if you would benefit from a “multidisciplinary team” approach early on in your care, before surgery. Ask your breast specialists to present your unique cancer situation to their team so you will benefit from new ideas and cutting-edge treatment advances. Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy When you know you have involved lymph nodes at diagnosis, you likely will be offered chemotherapy at some point in your treatment. There can be distinct advantages to having chemotherapy before surgery, rather than afterwards. This is known as neoadjuvant chemotherapy. This complex decision is worth discussing with your breast surgeon. Breast surgeons choose the initial direction of your entire breast cancer treatment plan. An axillary ultrasound can better identify if you are a candidate for neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Take our lesson on “Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy” to learn more about the potential benefits of this treatment approach.

What can you tell about sentinel node biopsy? - Dr. Nanda Rajaneesh

Ask Doctors - Get Video Answers in HINDI Subscribe to - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCS1y5nTRddMYnozjN9iw0mA for HINDI videos Sentinel lymph node is the first lymph node which comes in contact whenever there is a spread of breast cancer along the lymphatics. So whenever there is no clinical palpable lymph node also the lymph node in the early investigation also that means it is an early breast cancer the breast cancer is very much confined to the breast but there can be microscopic and macroscopic metastasis of these cancer cells in to the lymphatics which will not be possible as a palpable lymph node. So in such situations we like to do what is called as sentinel lymph node biopsy. What is the reason we want to do a sentinel lymph node biopsy? When we do the actual clearance, that is the removal of all the lymph nodes for sampling and check the prognosis of the disease to know the stage of the disease, there are lot of complications and problems associated with the removal of the lymph nodes when they are not involved. So what we do is we try to check only 1 or 2 lymph nodes which first pass of the lymphatic drainage and if that is positive we go for axillary drains. So for the benefit of doing sentinel lymph node biopsy in early breast cancer, how is it done is during the surgery we first inject a dye and a technetium scan dye also and a methylene blue dye around the tumor and we first detect the new lymph node with a dye scanner and also a blue staining of a lymph node and we do a table frozen section to check if there is any disease present in these lymph nodes if it is present, we proceed axillary clearance. If it is not present, we need not do axillary clearance in these patients. So axillary clearance is possible only in early breast cancers.

Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy
 
15:29
http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/Lymplex.html http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/Lymplex-ingredients.html This is widely used as part of the treatment of breast cancer and malignant melanoma. It is a way of checking just one or two lymph nodes close to the cancer. Usually it's done at the same time as an operation to remove the cancer. It involves injecting a tiny amount of radioactive liquid into the area of the primary cancer. The lymph nodes are then scanned to see which have taken up the radioactive liquid first. A blue dye is also injected into the area of the cancer. The dye stains the lymph nodes blue. The nodes that become blue or radioactive first are known as the sentinel nodes. The surgeon removes only the sentinel nodes so that they can be tested for cancer cells. If the sentinel nodes do not contain cancer cells, no further surgery will be needed. If the nodes do contain cancer cells, either another operation can be done to remove other nearby nodes, or they can be treated with radiotherapy or chemotherapy. http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/store http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/store/lymplex.html

"BLUE NODE SAMPLING IN BREAST CANCER" by PROF. CHINTAMANI
 
01:42
Four Node Sampling/Biopsy (FNB) using methylene blue is a workable alternative to Sentinel Node Biopsy (SLNB) in Breast Cancer especially in a developing country. The technique needs to be validated before use. Prof. Chintamani has compared the SLNB with this technique and found similar results.
