Depends: Lymph nodes are one aspect of evaluation for stage and treatment of breast cancer. It depends on size of breast cancer itself, number of lymph nodes involved, hormone status of the tumor, and dna testing can also help identify breast cancer risks. If the lymph node involvement is small, then there is little additioanl risk to the patient. There are many factors involved in assessing breast cancer.
