Among these 219 breast cancer, 11 were DCIS; one case was a supplementary radical operation.

§ Among these 219 breast cancers, one case supplementary radical operation was excluded from statistics of cancer size because of primary breast cancers had been removed.

|| Among these 1,698 breast cancers, 112 were DCIS, 10 cases were supplementary radical operations and two cases were occult breast cancers.

Among these 1,698 breast cancers, two cases of axillary lymph nodes biopsies were excluded from the statistics regarding cancer size because the presence of occult breast cancer; 10 cases of supplemental radical operations were excluded from the statistics regarding cancer size as the primary breast cancers had already been removed.
