Understanding breast cancer recurrence

Local recurrence v. distant recurrence (metastasis) - Local recurrence of cancer is found in a similar place as the first, usually during a mammogram or physical exam. - Many recurrences are limited to the breast, and can be surgically removed. - Distant recurrences of cancer occur in a different part of the body, and are known as metastases. - Metastasis is usually found when symptoms are reported through follow-up visits. Recurrence is less likely to occur if: - there were few or no cancerous lymph nodes during surgery - breast cancer found early and was small - adjuvant therapy (chemotherapy or hormone therapy) was given along with surgery.
