Always check: It is well recognzied that most tumors arise in a field effect and when the lesion is completely removed there is always a potential for a new lesion to occur. With 3D high resolution mammo, one can detect the earliest lsion and recurrence that can be removed locally. The incidence of a new primary after treating a breast cancer successfully is 1% per year for at least 15 yrs.
