Study Purpose

The purpose of this study is to compare usual lymph node surgery to an added procedure during the surgery to help surgeons see the lymph node system better. During usual surgery, the lymph node system may be disrupted, which can cause swelling in the arm. This research study will use a new lymph node surgery technique, axillary reverse mapping, to look at how fluid drains through the lymph node system in your upper arm. This new procedure could reduce the chance of developing arm swelling.

Who Can Participate

Women 18 years and older who are diagnosed with breast cancer may be eligible for this study.
