Radiotherapy After Mastectomy Helpful to Women with Breast Cancer That Metastasized to Only a Few Lymph Nodes

Women whose breast cancer has metastasized to only a few lymph nodes under their arm are less likely to have a recurrence of their disease or to die from it if they have radiotherapy after mastectomy, according to new findings.   More...
