[Carcinoma of the breast and conservative surgical therapy. Current approaches and presentation of a personal case series].

[Article in Italian]


After re-emphasising the concept of breast cancer as a systemic disease whose prognosis depends more on biological activity than the local evolution of the tumour, the paper compares tumour size and axillary lymph node involvement in 2 groups of patients with Stage PT1 and PT2 breast cancer, in order to justify a preference for conservative surgery (QU.A.RT) even for tumours over 2 cm in diameter.
