stage II breast cancer

(... brest KAN-ser)

Stage II is divided into stages IIA and IIB. In stage IIA, (1) no tumor is found in the breast or the tumor is 2 centimeters or smaller. Cancer (larger than 2 millimeters) is found in 1 to 3 axillary lymph nodes or in the lymph nodes near the breastbone (found during a sentinel lymph node biopsy); or (2) the tumor is larger than 2 centimeters but not larger than 5 centimeters. Cancer has not spread to the lymph nodes. In stage IIB, the tumor is (1) larger than 2 centimeters but not larger than 5 centimeters. Small clusters of breast cancer cells (larger than 0.2 millimeter but not larger than 2 millimeters) are found in the lymph nodes; or (2) larger than 2 centimeters but not larger than 5 centimeters. Cancer has spread to 1 to 3 axillary lymph nodes or to the lymph nodes near the breastbone (found during a sentinel lymph node biopsy); or (3) larger than 5 centimeters. Cancer has not spread to the lymph nodes.

El estadio II se divide en los estadios IIA y IIB. En el estadio IIA, 1) no se encuentra un tumor en la mama o el tumor mide dos centímetros o menos. El cáncer (que mide más de dos milímetros) se encuentra en 1 a 3 ganglios linfáticos axilares o en los ganglios linfáticos cerca del esternón (se encontró mediante una biopsia de ganglio linfático centinela); o 2) el tumor mide más de dos centímetros, pero no más de cinco centímetros. El cáncer no se diseminó hasta los ganglios linfáticos. En el estadio IIB, el tumor 1) mide más de dos centímetros, pero no más de cinco centímetros. Se encuentran pequeños racimos de células de cáncer de mama (que miden más de 0,2 milímetros, pero no más de 2 milímetros) en los ganglios linfáticos; o 2) miden más de dos centímetros, pero no más de cinco centímetros. El cáncer se diseminó de 1 a 3 ganglios linfáticos axilares o hacia los ganglios linfáticos cerca del esternón (se encontró mediante una biopsia de ganglio linfático centinela); o 3) miden más de cinco centímetros. El cáncer no se diseminó hacia los ganglios linfáticos.
