Definitions for "Nodal status"
indicates whether the cancer has spread (node-positive) or has not spread (node-negative) to lymph nodes. Prostate cancer can spread to the lymph nodes in the pelvis.
Whether lymph nodes tested from the armpit show the presence of breast cancer. If nodes are positive, they contain breast cancer; if they are negative, they do not. The nodal status can help predict the risk of recurrence and help determine treatment options.
Indicates the histological presence or not of metastases in the axillary nodes. (Node +ve=one or more nodes involved. Node -ve=no nodes involved.)
