Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy
A sentinel node biopsy is a procedure used in the diagnosis of breast cancer. A sentinel node biopsy offers a less invasive way to determine if lymph nodes under the arm are cancerous. This helps determine the breast cancer stage. A pathologist will review the lymph nodes. If they are cancer-free, this can eliminate the need to remove additional lymph nodes.
