Stages of breast cancer


The treating oncologist will want to know whether the tumour is localised to the breast or whether it has spread to the local lymph nodes or whether it has spread to further afield.


Clinical examination supplemented by scanning will assist in this regard. Treatment is tailored to the extent of the disease at presentation.
