Locally advanced breast cancer refers to patients diagnosed with bulky primary cancers and/or regional adenopathy. It's frequency has diminished greatly because of screening mammography and early detection. However, impoverished and minority racial/ethnic communities continue to experience disproportionately high breast cancer mortality rates because of their high risk for being diagnosed with locally advanced disease.
