The aim of this study was to see the prognosis of patients with locally advanced carcinoma breast after primary surgical intervention followed by adjuvant therapy and to evaluate possible complications.
The study includes 50 patients; Most of them were postmenopausal with stage IIIA carcinoma breast with age ranging from 51-60 years. Modified radical mastectomy was the primary procedure followed by radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Tamoxifen given to postmenopausal women. Patients were followed up for one year. Locoregional recurrence and distal metastases occurred mostly in stage IIIB patients and also that the prognosis of patients with LABC is poor due to late presentation, bigger size of tumour and axillary metastasis
