For the record

February 02, 2009

Breast cancer: A Jan. 26 Health section article examining the medical facts in an episode of the TV series "Nip/Tuck" said that a diagnosis of Stage 2 breast cancer means that the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes. Though a designation of Stage 2 breast cancer often refers to a cancer that has spread to the lymph nodes under the arm, it can also refer to a tumor of a certain size that has not spread: Stage 2A can be a tumor (without spread) measuring 2 to 5 centimeters in diameter. Stage 2B can be a tumor (without spread) greater than 5 centimeters.
