Eligibility Criteria

Age 18+ · Female Participants · 10 Total Inclusion Criteria

Mark “Yes” if the following statements are true for you:
AJCC stage I invasive breast cancer with a tumor size larger than 1.
For patients who do not have any cancer in their axilla, their baseline assessment of the axilla will be done at the discretion of their doctor.
Pathologic documentation of invasive cancer by biopsy is necessary for accurate diagnosis.
: -written informed consent obtained -no significant medical problems To be eligible to participate in the study, participants must meet the following criteria on screening examination: written informed consent obtained, and no significant medical problems.
The study is open to people with multicentric or bilateral cancer if at least one lesion meets the stage eligibility criteria for the study, and no tumor is HER2-positive.
You do not need to know your BRCA1/2 status to participate in this study, but patients with a known deleterious BRCA1/2 mutation should be encouraged to consider a preoperative trial specifically designed for BRCA1/2 carriers, if available.
For people with a positive result from a physical examination of their lymph nodes, their doctor may recommend a needle aspiration, core biopsy, or SLN procedure to determine if the lymph nodes contain cancerous cells.
For patients who have pathologically positive axillary lymph nodes prior to preoperative therapy, it is recommended that a level I and II lymph node dissection be done at the time of definitive surgery.
Tumors that are classified as HER2 negative are defined as those that have a score of 0 or 1+ on an immunohistochemistry assay, and/or lack of gene amplification by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), with a ratio of < 2 on invasive tumor by local review.
The status of a tumor's estrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PgR) by immunohistochemistry (IHC) must be known
