Is sentinel lymph node biopsy indicated in multicentric or multifocal breast cancer?

M. Vilcu, N. Bacalbasa, I. Balescu, D. Gheorghiu


Abstract: For a long period of time it has been considered that multicentric/ multifocal breast cancer represents a formal contra-indication for sentinel node biopsy. However, recent studies have showed that sentinel node biopsy is both accurate and feasible in these particular situations. Moreover, performing this technique will minimize the proportion of patients submitted to un-necessary complete axillary lymph node dissection. This is a literature review of the most recent studies which evaluated the role of sentinel node biopsy in multicentric and multifocal breast cancer patients.
