What is Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy(SLNB) in Breast Cancer – Dr. Mansi Chowhan #breastcancer #cancer
Sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) is a procedure in which the first station lymph node is identified, removed, and examined to determine whether cancer cells are present. It is used in people who have already been diagnosed with breast cancer.
This procedure reduces side effects of removing more lymph nodes from armpit region or axilla like lymphedema or arm swelling. Live, Love, Light to the community.
