Summary
Brief summary
RATIONALE: Surgery to remove lymph nodes in the armpit in patients with sentinel lymph node
micrometastases may remove cancer cells that have spread from tumors in the breast. It is not
yet known whether surgery to remove the primary tumor is more effective with or without
axillary lymph node dissection.

PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying surgery and axillary lymph node
dissection to see how well they work compared to surgery alone in treating women with
node-negative breast cancer and sentinel lymph node micrometastases.
