Management of locoregional and systemic recurrence of breast cancer: To stage or not to stage and how

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The surveillance of breast cancer patients after potentially curative treatment may result in the identification of locoregional or distant recurrence. While many patients expect frequent imaging studies to monitor for recurrence, there are no data supporting aggressive imaging surveillance beyond mammography. However, when recurrent disease is suspected, it is appropriate to undertake re-staging to develop a rational management plan. The rationale and methods for appropriate surveillance and re-staging are discussed.
