Abstract

The prognostic information implied in subgross morphologic parameters such as lesion distribution (unifocal, multifocal, or diffuse) and disease extent in breast cancer has remained largely unexplored in the literature. We aimed to test whether these parameters influence survival in breast carcinoma. The parameters were assessed in a series of 574 cases, all documented in large-format histology sections. We used Cox proportional hazards regression accompanied by Kaplan-Meyer survival curves, with P
