Lymph node surgery

In the case of invasive cancer, it is necessary to check that the nodes in the armpit are not affected. During the lumpectomy (or mastectomy), the surgeon will remove the sentinel lymph nodes (the first lymph nodes that drain the breast) or, if the lymph nodes are affected, will perform an axillary dissection (removal of a larger number of lymph nodes in the armpit).
