Abstract

The therapeutic management of regional lymph nodes in breast cancer has seen a remarkable change in the past 2 decades. Clinical trials have refined our knowledge regarding the biology of the disease including the prognostic significance of disease in the regional lymph nodes. The contemporary management of lymph nodes is also influenced by advances in surgical technique, radiation oncology delivery systems, and effective systemic therapy regimens. This paper describes the role of regional nodal irradiation in the context of the de-escalation of axillary surgery, improved understanding of the molecular and pathologic features, and increasing use of neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
