    Tumours often engage the lymphatic system in order to invade and metastasize. The tumour-draining lymph node may be an immune-privileged site that protects the tumour from host immunity, and lymph flow that drains tumours is often increased, enhancing communication between the tumour and the...

    The article discusses the size of tumour, the status of lymph node, and outcome after breast cancer. It focuses on the high correlation of tumour size and axillary lymph node status, but they are independent measures of outcome. Moreover, it notes that the outcome is worse if the greater number...

    Tumour cells use two major routes to spread during metastasis, e.g. lymph vessels and blood vessels within or surrounding the primary tumour. The growth rate of the primary tumour often correlates with the quantity of new blood vessels that form within the tumour. However, qualitative...

    Sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs), being the first nodes to receive lymph from a primary tumour and the preferential site of initial tumour metastases, are intensively exposed to the bioactive products of tumour cells and other associated cells. This makes them ideal for studies of the factors that...

    Abstract  The assessment of nuclear area and nuclear shape by morphometric analysis, has been investigated in 40 canine mammary carcinomas in relation to their metastatic behaviour to regional lymph-nodes. The tumours were reviewed by two experienced pathologists blinded...
