The large enlargement visible during the last decade within the mammo photograph detection of breast melanoma lesions, specially using reveal ing strategies for the early detection of clinically unsuspected tumors, has made it essential to summarize the adventure made by means of a variety of facilities on the earth. The second foreign Copenhagen Symposium on Detection of Breast melanoma afforded a chance of accumulating scientists from around the globe to debate a number of the difficulties of early breast melanoma detection with precise connection with screening methods.

One patient, with a negative repeat SLN, did not undergo completion ALND. They concluded reoperative lymphatic mapping is feasible and provides useful information in the subset of patients with recurrent ipsilateral breast cancer76. These studies highlight the ever growing knowledge of sentinel lymph node biopsy and its utility. Prior axillary surgery was once thought to be a contraindication to SLNB but it now appears the procedure may be very helpful in identifying lymphatic basins that would otherwise not be explored when a patient presents Table 4.
