|Titolo:||Early detection of breast cancer recurrences through periodic follow-up--is it useless?|
|Autori interni:||MOLINO, Annamaria|
|Data di pubblicazione:||1985|
|Abstract:||The authors report on a multicentric consecutive series of 1120 breast cancer first recurrences. Cases detected as subjectively asymptomatic thanks to periodic follow-up examinations are compared to cases detected as symptomatic. The relapse-free interval from primary treatment was shorter for asymptomatic recurrences, confirming that an earlier diagnosis was achieved in these cases. In spite of this diagnostic anticipation, median and actuarial survival from primary treatment did not differ when asymptomatic recurrences were compared to symptomatic recurrences. The study results did not show any prognostic impact of periodic follow-up in breast cancer and urge for prospective controlled studies on this diffuse and expensive practice.|
