Axillary Lymph Node Surgery

When breast cancers begin to spread around the body (metastasise), they first spread to the lymph nodes around the area. A cancerous cell can enter into the lymphatic channels that drain your breast and end up in the regional lymph nodes. A surgeon at a breast cancer clinic may be able to excise these metastases.
