    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    all clinical testing showed no node involvement, yet the SLND revealed cancer in 3/3 sentinel nodes!

    ALDN or Radiation

    Decision Point

    Since sentinel nodes were positive needed to decide if I should have an axiliary node dissection or just treat the area with radiation. Studies show radiation is as effective in my case and ALND has issues with lymphedema.
