Abstract or Summary
  • The intention of this research was to analyze the clinical implications of lymph node involvement, cancer stage and cancer treatment administered for 481 breast cancer patients receiving care at St. Charles Health System in Bend Oregon. It was concluded that lymph node involvement has a linear and positive association with cancer stage and radiation therapy. It was also concluded that hormone therapy and surgery are likely not prescribed based on lymph node involvement. Chemotherapy was most commonly prescribed for patients with lymph node involvement, but a linear relationship was not seen. The highest prevalence for treatment contraindication was seen in radiation therapy. The highest prevalence of treatment refusal was seen in chemotherapy. Lastly, there was a linear positive association between refusal of chemotherapy and increased lymph node involvement. These results are pertinent to St. Charles Health System because they inform physicians of trends in patient health status.
