Clinical aspect of breast

Surface anatomy

 

 

Peau d'orange cancer of the breast occurs as result of the tightening of the ligaments of Cooper in the carcinoma of the breast.

In radical mastectomy the entire breast tissue must be removed to include its axillary tail. Because its lymphatic drainage includes parasternal nodes, these nodes in addition to others must be cleared.

Cosmetic incision on simple procedure on the breast such as lumpectomy should be performed on its undersurface.
