Tag: lymphNodeStatus

Lymph node status: Axillary lymph nodes examined during breast surgery are classified as positive if they contain small metastases or cancer cell clusters and negative if they do not. Lymph nodes are filters in the lymphatic system designed to trap and eliminate cancer cells, bacteria and other harmful particles.
