S. Halsted opened up a new era in breast cancer treatment, introducing the "radical mastectomy". The principle of Halsted was that a rigourous, accurate surgical technique which would remove the breast "en bloc" with the pectoralis muscles and the axillary nodes would cure a considerable number of patients. The need to remove the intermediate tissues from the primary breast tumour to the axillary nodes was based on the assumption that the spread of breast cancer cells would occur through the lymphatic vessels, with a process defined as "permeation", the cancer cell thereby "filling" all the major lymphatic channels departing from the breast.

Enlarged axillary nodes are infrequently reported by the patient although they may be detected on physical examination. The presence of palpable axillary nodes is a very nonspecific symptom being often present, even bilaterally, in most women undergoing physical examination. Only enlarged nodes over 2 cm in diameter, or nodes fixed to surrounding structures are really worth regarding as suspicious. The sensitivity of physical examination is greatly affected by tumour size as small tumours may be missed, especially in large breasts.
