Aim: In the evaluation of axillary lymph nodes in early stage breast cancer, routine axillary dissection has been left to the sentinel lymph node dissection. When sentinel lymph node biopsy is performed with high accuracy of the axillary region, complications due to axillary dissection do not develop. We also examined our sentinel lymph node biopsy in early stage breast cancer in our study.
